A month to go my friends...and the great contest begins! Who will take the trophy this year? England - much revived, with some impressive performances in the autumn. They've rediscovered backs, running, that sort of thing. France - well, some great players there and never to be underestimated, but Lievremont continues to deal wild cards, and that autumn game against Aus suggests something isn't right somewhere. Scotland - impressive win over SA and a much improved side, but can they really shed their also-ran status? Wales - continue to punch below their weight, and pluck losses from the jaws of victory. A host of key players back from injury means it could come right about now. Italy - yes, they are in the Six Nations too. Still a work in progress. Ireland - powerful side which also played well in the autumn, and has to be a fair bet for the title. WHAT DO YOU THINK???
