Six Nations 2019

My prediction:

Ireland - Only because they have England at home and I fancy the ref will want to help the home team as much as possible
England - On the up with actual back rowers, but will get beaten in Ireland by the officials
Wales - Nowhere near as good as the Welsh think, but less shit than the others
France - In decline. Will get hammered by Ireland and England
Scotland - Back to whipping boys
Italy - Will lose all six heavily

I wouldn’t say so, he’s went through the whole Scotland system, he tries overly extravagant sets of play whereas at Racing he seems to run more, which is what Townsend has tried to implement into the Scotland side

If he plays sloppy we should resort back to Laidlaw falling into 10 and Ali Price coming on as scrum half
I rate Laidlaw - he's been outstanding for a few years now
 
Thank God.
Three posts in praise of the lad.
Cannot believe how much stick he gets - starting with my Murayfield uncle.
Stern Vern - a decent judge - clearly rates him

I'm fancying Wales tbf.
Warren Gatland may have been exaggerating when claiming that four wins from four this November ranks the same as a Six Nations grand slam, but Wales’s progress cannot be ignored any longer. Their three-point victory over Australia was hardly a classic but do not underestimate its significance after 13 successive defeats by the Wallabies. The development of strength in depth continues apace with Gareth Anscombe, in particular, now looking every inch an international fly-half. Such a shame to see Ellis Jenkins suffer a serious injury after shining at openside but if Sam Warburton the flanker is not missed, his leadership may well be come the Six Nations. Alun Wyn Jones is totemic but needs support in that sense. Good to see George North looking dangerous again.
I know Ireland have recently ousted NZ at the top of world rugby, be we have them at home on the last day - I fancy that.

Stop it, you have me salivating.

This is the only thing keeps me sane in January & February.

They're already calling the Wales vs Ireland game on the last day "the decider".

But since Wales are away to France and Scotland this time around, I'll hold back on any premature announcements just yet and simply wait for the 6N to begin.

Has anyone worked out how many sleeps yet until it starts?

*rubs hands together*
Grow up!

It's my birthday on 12th Feb, so the OH decides that she was going to surprise me with a visit to Paris to watch the game above until I pointed out that it's being played at Twickenham.I'm now going to Paris to watch it on telly in a fFrench pub instead of being at Twickenham! It's the thought that counts I suppose.
