SIX NATIONS RUGBY 2016

Could be a very interesting tournament, will Eddie's England be any better than Lancaster's? Wales should be at their usual brilliant best and the Scots and Irish will both be fielding strong sides. As I say, could be interesting....

After Irelands performance in the World Cup my money is on them. Although England could be looking for payback!

Italy, law of averages must come up trumps soon, and as my tennis fixing scam has been highlighted I've had to change sports.

Interesting opening match Wales v Ireland. Wales can be slow starters. I think this is defining match. Who takes this takes the cup....

Apart from your comment about Wales, I agree with you. Definitely going to be interesting with a lot of players out to either try to make amends or prove the RWC wasn't just a flash in the pan

This year's competition could be one of the closest for years, if performances at the RWC are anything to go by.

England, Ireland and to an extent, France are in the rebuilding process. The others did well at the RWC and will be coming into this 6N quite confident in their team.

The opening games will be crucial, especially the Scot v Eng where I expect no quarter to be given and plenty of claret on display!

Hardest call for a grandslam in many a year, I think this will be won and lost on simple mistakes, rather than a totally dominant side?
Let the battles begin and the best team will win? Not fence sitting it is to close to call, well except for the Italians and depends what mood the French are in.

Another great weekend of top class rugby, still backing Wales, but what a revelation from the other teams! England, the best thing that has happened to them in years is Eddie Jones. Scotland, totally different team from last year's competition, the makings of a team to be feared. Ireland, total commitment a rebuild team destined for glory. France, if they're on song who would back against them? Italy, exciting as always, let down by silly basic errors but never ever stop trying their best, one day soon they are going to upset the apple cart big style. All in all a great tournament so far. If the local doesn't run out of Stowford's this going be the best Six Nations' for years!

Taffs totally agree,but too many silly mistakes by all teams, the effort can not be faulted.

My prediction -already realised- is that my local will be backed out the door full of irregulars, some of whom may have played rugby once at school, 20 years and 30 kg ago, talking shite about the game, shouting at the telly and drinking Guinness even though they hate it because it's a 'rugby drink'. Women will look up from their phones when the background noise suggests some excitement and get all shrill and shouty. Who are these twats and why are they in my pub?

Fcuk off.

Avoid the rugby Walt's stay at home with friends and family watch on TV with those that know the game and drink Guinness, myself and 2 of the children are ex plays my eldest son trying to return to the game from an AC I injury and my wife a rugby widow.
When I say my youngest son and daughter are ex players, they both stopped before their teen's, since then they watched me until my body and wife stopped me, only 1 family member to watch if he can play again.

I played at school for 4 years and stopped because some of the opposition from neighbouring high schools were 'refugee 16' and freaking massive, rugby became scary and it hurt. Being a poof it was time to take up hockey.

I still enjoy watching a good game even if I'm not favouring either team. Unfortunately rugby is acquiring some of the trappings of football. Hugging and kissing is bad enough but if players start snarling when they score, do that choreographed 'goal' celebration shite and gobbing off at the ref I'll embrace synchronised swimming as the new macho gentleman's sport.

SD agree obviously swayed to England but I watch each game as a sportsman and not a nut job loony.
I was a Hockey Goalie for more than half over my navy time, no padding, had a face mask and a pair of cricket pads and wicket keepers gloves and wore steaming wellies under my kickers, Frigates and Boats were never equipped for Hockey Goalie? It was sometimes scary in goal especially when playing indoors. forgot most important bit cricket Box.
Seen a guy who forgot his box go down like a sack of tatties, then carried off for some TLC.

That makes my eyes water. Not even a bevvy of porn starlets could lick them better. The only TLC for that is a quick death.

By your own hand you confess to being exactly the sort of person you detest! You seem a bit mixed up :rolleyes:

The only man to stop the modern players' football style behaviour is the referee. He should make it clear before kick off to both teams' captains that arguing with him will result in a spell in the sin bin. Rugby has traditionally respected the referee and long may it be so.
