6 nations rugby

The six nations tournament begins tomorrow, and depending upon whom you listen to, its either an open contest, or England or France have their names written all over it…

Guess what, I’m backing Scotland.

Yeah I know, I backed Scotland for the world cup and it didnt happen, but so what. Here’s the deal…

England have Wales at home on Saturday, in all honesty, much as I love Wales and the Welsh, I cant see England losing this one.  Dismal Ireland face weak Italy, hopefully the Irish can walk away with a some honour restored.

Then on Sunday the Scots square up to France, the champs.  But the French, who have six uncapped players in their squad, have been soaking up the sun while the scots have been muscling it out in all weathers, and guess what… it’ll be snowy and horrible at Murrayfiled on Sunday! Perfect!

Its not a done deal by any stretch of the imagination, but we can tough it out up there, and give the French a beating, that will put tails well and truly up for Wales in Cardiff next week.  And dont forget we’ve a good record at the Millenium stadium, which could make it two wins out of two… then the chances are we should beat both Ireland and Italy, and even if England prove too much for us, we’d have four wins, and that could well be enough to get us the championship… dreamer I may be, but let’s just wait and see what happens on Sunday shall we!
