Wednesday Debate No.8- 6 Nations

January 30, 2013
Rugby ballet?

Sadly the players may not be quite THIS graceful…

Who will win the 6 nations this year? The old competition gets underway this weekend and i can hardly wait.

First of all, to Italy and Scotland. I can’t see them moving outside their traditional wooden spoon  spots and for me Italy will pip Scotland to the loser’s post and finish last this year (confused? good).

I’m sorry to say that I think neither Wales nor Ireland can challenge for the Grand Slam this year. The loss of Tommy Bowe, amongst others, for Ireland will impact them hugely and with the mammoth O’Driscoll on the wane, I think it could be 4th spot for the men in green. Wales will miss Dan Lydiate in the forwards and their back line cannot sustain them alone so against France and England they will struggle.

It has probably become obvious that I believe the main challengers are le rosbifs and the frogs. Big centres could call the shots for both teams- Wesley Fofana on the french side and Manu Tuilagi for England each have the potential to set the world alight in the coming weeks. For me, provided the man who has more lives than a lucky cat, Frederic Michalak, plays decently, France should edge England at Twickenham in the deciding match and clinch the Grand Slam.

What do you think? Leave a comment below. Hope you enjoyed it, please like and follow if you’d like more. See you after the weekend!
