    Default The 6 Nations 2018

    With squads being announced in the next few days its time to Kick Off.
    So here it is again, the 6 Nations thread.
    As usual discuss, pull legs, get some banter going, highlight good play (and reffing) but most importantly enjoy.
    Cheers

    Yippee! It's that time again. Well done Aled, I think it will be a good deal harder for England to win it again this year, but hopefully not too hard.

    Yes, always a great tournament. Definitely won't be easy for England.

    In particular, Scotland at Murrayfield could be very difficult if Scotland have built up a head of steam by then.

    Joe Marler will miss the first two games after needlessly smashing his shoulder into someone's head, not the brightest act with the 6 nations looming.

    Hoping for some good games of quality rugby, good luck to all teams.

    Hard to see past Ireland this time round.

    Wales squad for the 2018 Six Nations
    The Welsh squad for the 6 Nations, no major surprises, disappointed that the Dragons prop Leon Brown is still injured, I think he may have a bright future. Omissions include, Gethin Jenkins, Jamie Roberts and Luke Charteris. As usual I'm picked out of position at scrum half!! Glad to see Adams and Jamie Davies getting a crack.
    Cheers

    Scotland will struggle in the forwards due to a few key injuries again. I don't think they're quite good enough to win it but hope they put it up to the rest.

    I think Ireland have a chance but England are the team to lose it.

    You would probably get quite good odds on that.

    Well I have my tickets to the Wales v Scotland game and the England v Ireland game. Looking forward to both.

    Big squad that Aled, must be a fair few players carrying injuries. One of those young second rows needs to step up.

    England appear to be planning to play without a backrow again. They got away with it last year. I am not sure it will work again.
