    Default Six nations 2016

    Starts on saturday with 2 games and then ireland v wales on sunday. So can we win it 3 years in a row? Expectations seem to be low this year, with alot of players out through injury and paulie retired and johnny not playing his best with leinster. Ive always said its not about whose missing its about whose playing. But i dont think we will win it this time. I think wales to win it and england second. Any opinions? Good luck ireland.

    I think all teams have something to prove, but id fancy France with wales to come best of home nations

    I don't think that there is any team coming in with a lot of confidence so it is wide open. Its good that we have a home game first because momentum is huge in this tournament. I was surprised to hear that nobody has one 3 championships in a row so that should be a huge incentive for Ireland. Hard to know with France and England and the new coaches. Cant see anyone winning the grand slam, very difficult to call.

    Not a bad side, exciting back line, slight concern about the second row, great opportunity for stander.

    ya i would agree that its the best team available, i think only 3 of the team that started against argentina remain. That shows all the injuries we have. I think wales, england and france to win this weekend.

    Ya I hope he is the catalyst to kick start us , been his first cap he might play out of his skin and drive the rest on.

    I will go with Ireland as they at home but it is the strongest team available to him so he was limited to who he could pick.
    Second row is poor we need to find more
