    The Six Nations

    I was hoping to bump last years thread and then realised some wanker had put 2019 in the title.

    Saturday it all starts again but with a host of managerial changes so this could be the least predictable of an already unpredictable tournament in years.



    Six Nations: Team-by-team guide, key players, title odds and how to watch

    Four new head coaches, a raft of uncapped up-and-comers and a rivalry that stretches back more than 135 years.

    Warming up to be a great game in Parc de Princes, young French team running the ball like i remember in the 70/80s against an Eng team who just look dull and lumpen.

    Looks like that traitor Edwards is doing OK for the Frenchie as new defensive coach.

    Looks like 17 up, if the French keep this up the prediction by some commentator that Eng could win the Grand Slam is not going to happen.

    Actually, its a real shame, they are not good enough to win in the six nations lately but if as is mooted they create a second league with the winner joining the six nations they will win it every time on current opposition.

    I just wish they would improve, dismissing them is not the answer as i am a real fan of expanding rugger, some good shows in the RWC by lesser teams this year and the sooner we get a group of second tier teams forming a decent division the better.

    France, considering their age have played a blinder. Well done. Great to see some guile instead of brute boredom by England.

    EDIT

    The Youngsters struggled in the 2nd half tho.

    Well done the French, faded but they took it to Eng in the first half and some glimmer of the France of old. Young side and great for the six nations. Love it.

    ^ Nige is a top ref, very respected amongst the players and had a difficult time "Coming Out". Great come back there to some English sore loser.

    If your team can't deliver, don't expect the ref to sort your shit out for you.

    Dour opening weekend, littered with errors across the board. The French may do well this time around. Shaun Edwards is a brilliant coach.

    Ahhh Ire v Wales. Close game i reckon.

    Not keen on the mics zooming in on the players murdering their national anthems.

    Well done Ireland but so far on replays i can't see how Ireland got a forward pass try, a completely obscured try and a Wales disallowed try (possibly right).
