I won't even have that luxury, it being a Friday game.

I'll be supporting the other side (you know, the good guys).

We moved from pretty near Twickenham. I used to go to 3 or 4 games a year there and am really going to miss that whilst in the US.

Who is going to win the whole thing? Tough call again this year. If England win tomorrow, I think they stand a pretty good chance overall. France have to travel to Twickenham and Lansdowne Road, which knocks their chances a little. I wonder if it might come down to Ireland v England on the last weekend.

Wales have a reasonably kind fixture list but I'm going to jump on the bandwagon and say that I don't think they have the strength in depth of the three countries above.

Scotland seem to be going in the right direction but are still a way back imo.

Italy? Nah.

Oooo I'm just thinking my husbands cousin might be playing in this. He's from New Zealand but plays for France, so need to look out for him even though I haven't a bloody clue about rugby

Hi, I think I can see who you mean, but can't remember his name... I don't think he'll be playing in tomorrow's match, as the list of players doesn't include a non-French name. I'll keep a look-out in the future, though!
(btw I live in France, and adore watching rugby even though I don't understand the rules!)

Just watched the first one, very competitive and a great atmosphere. I won't spoil anyone's enjoyment by pre-empting the result, but for those of you who will be watching it later, it's well worth the watch. Good start to the series.

Yeah, I thought it was a great bit of rugby from both sides.

Great start to building up the atmosphere too. Hope the other games continue with the quality.

His names Kane Bentley and his 2 brothers also play, Anaru (Andrew) Bentley also plays in France, don't know if he plays for the french team and the other brother Valu plays somewhere in Manchester. Need to have a look and see if he's in the squad.
