Default Six Nations Rugby

It starts this coming weekend I believe. Any predictions on the likely outcome? Didn't Wales do the business last year or am I mistaken? Will it be shown on TV here?

Al Jazeera +3 normally. BUT, if there is a clash, you'll have to go hunting...think about the National Geographic channels or +10.

England will win it.

Wales are shit.
Scotland are slightly less shit.
Ireland are old and a bit shit.
France are a bit of a threat.
Italy are not to be underestimated but still, really, shit.

See.

The only problem, Scamp, is that not only are the England players slow and predictable, but their tactics are as equally shitty as the rest of them. Any of three teams could win this year.

Danny Care.

He will solve all problems. Dynamic, attacking, smart footballer.

yeah, but aren't a bunch of the other decent players all broken? Well the ones who made an impression in the autumnals at least.

In odd-numbered years, it's wide open, as France have to go to Twickenham and Dublin. Two unpredictable matches, always.

In even-numbered years, France are favourites for the reverse reason.

What year is it?

It'll be on the BBC too so for those that can stream through the iPlayer, they can watch it there.

Despite England's performance against the All Blacks last year, I certainly don't think it's a done deal for them, particularly with Tuilagi out - not the neatest player but a battering ram of power.

I thought he was only missing the Scotland game - is his ankle worse then?

Sorry no, badly worded on my part - currently he's only out for the Calcutta Cup so will hopefully be fit for Ireland next week.

At least it's only Scotland (sorry Scottish people). Twelvetrees is not a bad second choice anyway (if selected), another powerhouse. No international experience, but you've got to start somewhere?

I genuinely think Scotland are not to be ignored like we did Italy 10 years ago.

Anyway. It's a done deal for England. Trust me.

Crikey, I bet that was mega.

Care is definitely the best of that lot though. I'm not at all biased am I?

Cipriani is distinctly below average week in week out.
Quade Cooper is a knobhead and somewhat overrated.
I don't know enough about Genia.

So Danny is at least second in the list and if I don't know GEnia, he must be pants.

Danny Care. Legend.
