Default So who's looking forward to the 6 Nations then?

Interesting tournament this year with the Oirish favourites and 4 unpredicatble wild-cards behind. It's as open a Chamionship as I can remember, just can't predict a winner.
Wales need to get off toa good start on Sunday to do will, which they can do, though I'm rather worried about all the injuries in the backs.
The Oirish as I said are favourites but a coupla chinks were exposed in the recent defeats of Munster, Ulster and Leinster. I'd be particularly worried by the hammering the Leicester pack gave Munsters, particularly considering Munster will have a big part of the Irish pack.
Can't really predict how England will go with the new coach,his style probbly doesn't suit his players but you cannot write them off.
As usual the French are the most unpredictable of the lot, they really are Jeckyl and Hyde. If they turn up theyshould win it with their powerful pack and backline runners. Course they often don't turn up and have a rael problem at 10
The Jocks, well they seem confident and improved last year to some extent, still their regional sides suggest they'll struggle and I expect them to do so.
Italy? Nah.

I didn't know china was a major power in rugby.

Anyway, i can't predict a winner, but England could do well, i reckon. Ireland slight favourites.

He'll get exploited imo. He was a fantastic player in League but for me his game doesn't translate well for Union and I think he's rather slow for IC. He mayhave been playing well but he hasn't playedmuch and it'sa big step up.
