Ok I reckon Ireland, if they can somehow come up with an away win against France, will win the 6N . The biggest problem for Ireland is definately at tighthead. If John Hayes gets injured we have no decent replacement. Also Kidney better start Sexton over ROG.

England havent a chance with Johnson as manager, some of his selections are shocking like when he put Ugo Monye at fullback and kept him there even when he was playing shite. Sure he was a great captain but clearly that doesn't translate into a great manager.

Wales are the darkhorses. They were plagued with injuries for the Autumn internationals so you can't judge them by that. I certainly wouldn't rule them out of winning it.

Scotland and Italy will as usual be the last two. Italy are missing Parrisse arguably the best number 8 in the world so without him they are half the team so I would expect them to get the wooden spoon.

France will undoubtably be the biggest obstacle for Ireland and they have the most solid team. They'll dominate at scrum time and line out time and it wouldn't surprise me if they wiped the floor with us.

Also Leinster ftw.
#46
Yeah, but Monye was playing better than Foden, the full time fullback
After Cueto took over the positon, play went far better, but now Armitage and Flutey are back there should be a lot more structure in England's backs, and the same with the injury depleted forwards, but i'd like to see Lawes replace Borthwick, Wilko can easily take over as captain again and do a far better job.

Still gonna have to go with Ireland for the win though

What happened to Clyde Rathbone? He was a beast of a player, but he hasn't done anything for a while..

What about Stirling Mortlock? Why isn't he captain of the Wallabies anymore? And who in the name of god put Rocky Elsom in as captain?

BAH! All those positions do is follow us backs around and try to use their weight to win the ball back. The fast, creative, good-looking guys behind the scrum are where it's at! REAL SKILLZ!!!

I play Flanker myself. I enjoy playing union but I can't stand watching it.

What was the highest attendance for a rugby game in Wales this weekend just gone?
#67
Not sure, never good. Actually it might have been good for the Ospreys /Dragons game but compared to Ginuess Prem and Super 14 and all, bad.

EDIT: thought you meant for union, for the League game with Crusaders, no idea, it was up in Wrexham.

It starts tomorrow! Place your bets for this weekend's games!

I call Wales, Ireland and Scotland (gotta support your country, even against all odds!) to win.

Exactly.

Forwards= fat and ugly

Backs= stylish and fast

Wales, ireland , France.

Wouldn't mind seeing Scotland having a good smash at the french, espically if they defended like they did a year or so ago, and onoly a chance if Patterson decided not to miss a thing today.

And I feel alot better that England is missing Flutey, thats all the creative falir in the centre gone

Agree with that.

Italy are playing slower than a bunch of 90 year olds. Appalling.

I loved all the cappuccino jokes made by the BBC commentators. Shit game though. Hopefully the Twickenham game'll be better!

I went to the Ireland v Italy game and it was shite, Italy in the second half became very negative and only wanted to slow down the game. Still a win is a win.

The England v Wales match was a cracker and England somehow managed to put in an amazing performance and win. But Johnson is still a shit manager.
#78
i gotta say, England did look good today, and I think Borthwick may have fought off some criticism, he was impeccable in that game. But the defence definately needs some work, maybe hipkiss instead of tait? tait just got thrown around like a small child when attempting to tackle

No way, Tait is far too good not to have playing. His running on the ball is always immaculate. Remember when Haskell scored his second try? On the break Tait made huge amounts of ground and passed it behind his back into Haskell's hands. He is way too skilled not to be starting everytime.

Yeah, but i don't think he's cut out for defence, i'd rather play him instead of Monye on the wing, Cueto was basically covering both wings all game!
