    Home.

    I don't go out.

    I don't expect anybody will be able to get near Wales this year.

    Don't let the win over the aussies get your hopes up too high mate.

    I agree they seem to have a good side but will need to play with more consistancy and especially away from their home turf and fanatical support.

    I think he's had some small hills put round his house to remind him of back home.

    ^^
    nobody beat us last year.

    we are better this year and everyone else is notably worse.
    England are quite horrid and we have them home.
    Italy, Scotland.......a breeze.
    Ireland home, we'll win that.

    only doubt i have is France away, never know what to expect with that lot.

    i will be very surprised if we don't win it.

    You were in this position a few years back and the following year you were terrible. Hopefully history will repeat itself.

    Wall Street is the best rugby bar in Bangkok.

    no.

    that 6 nations we won back then was extremely lucky, we also started the next 6 nations with 8 of the previous team out injured..

    different team now, more settled and more depth in every position except hooker.
    we don't even have one of them.

    not even close to the same situation.

    "Wall Street Bar" on Sukhumvit Soi 33 about 300 metres on the right hand side walking away from Sukhumvit Rd.

    Yep a good bunch of blokes get in there and not a bad pub either.

    Agreed, I was just wondering if any other places had sprung up in the last year. It is a big city...

    Soi 8 bar on Sukhumvit Soi 8 is also a good rugby pub. It's run by a kiwi man.

    Looking forward to this, I'll be backing Wales as per.

    Will have to get my DSTV sorted/reconnected asap. Super14 coming up shortly as well. Veritable feast of rugby!

    ^Sure can. That offers been open for ages, not that you've ever taken me up on it.

    I'm still not sure if I'm hurt and offended that I'm your second-choice behind blackgang.

    Indeed. I've watched rugby with an entire rouges gallery of suspect characters - yourself included.

    As for the Six Nations, Wales are rightly going in as favourites (at lkeast until we see which French team turns up). I hate that tag and it's when we usually have a complete brain fart.

    We should win 4 of 5 as CMN says, but the 6 Nations being the most competative of Rugby tournaments always throws up suprises and shock defeats.

    Wales will finish 2nd or 3rd in my opinion.

    France to win.

    That's the spirit, Welsh optimism at its best!

    You guys simply have to get used to winning; and by 'you' I mean the players and the fans. Wales have to players/team to foot it with the best but in my opinion they rely to much on emotion rather than a cold, calculated 'if we do X, Y and Z we'll beat them' approach. Self-belief (or lack thereof) is what it really comes down to.
