    Current Champions: Wales

    So the time has come again for the Scots, French, English, Irish, Welsh and the Italians to meet once more upon the field. Whose year will it be?
    Been looking forward to this since the end of the World Cup, especially after England's pretty dismal showing! Will make a nice break from watching the Premier League as well

    Mhmm!

    Ah well, new team, new start!

    Really excited (and slightly nervous) about how this new-look England team will turn out. It could either be a massive success, or a massive disaster

    Lol, rubbish.

    1. Wales
    2. France
    3. England
    4. Ireland
    5. Scotland
    6. Italy

    Wales to do the Grand Slam, most likely, but if not, certainly win the entire thing.

    COME ON IRELAND!! Gonna be tough to watch a 6N without O'Driscoll :emo:

    Can't call it. My opinion changes every day. I'll probably go for:

    1. France
    2. Ireland
    3. England
    4. Wales
    5. Italy
    6. Scotland

    But it's tough to call - England may be brilliant, or they may utterly suck. Ditto France. Ireland and Wales are rocked by injuries, and could be brilliant on their day. Italy proved last year they can beat the best and Scotland are consistently red herrings for a number of teams.

    Can't wait :teeth:
