Six Nations – wide open.

This weekend sees the start of the most unpredictable Six Nations for a while. (There’s still time to make your predictions here).

From the Record Andy Robinson is pressing the right buttons. Of England’s World Cup:

What surprises me about England is they fell into a downward spiral while winning. It wasn’t results that undermined them but the other stuff. They self-destructed.

Italy? – Joe.ie previews here. Targeting the Scots probably…

France, as always, find new stars…meet Wesley Fofana (You Tube)….hmmm!

It’s a defining first weekend – from the Herald:

France meet Italy seeking revenge for the biggest shock in tournament history; Scotland take on England in the oldest international fixture in the world; and Ireland welcome Wales for a rematch of the best match at last year’s World Cup.
Just a routine start to the RBS 6 Nations Championship, then.

This could be fun.
