    Starts this weekend. Can't wait. Who's going to win? Think we've got a few too many key injuries, which is unfortunate.

    Ireland if they can keep everyone fit for the tournament we need to get a new Johnny Sexton the guy is made of china crystal these days. If Ireland play like they played against the All Blacks then there the team to beat. It seems that they have got back to a consitant level in the European cup rugby and the players they have in some positions they have a number of brilliant players to pick from. Hooker area for Ireland Best needs replacing sooner rather than later. I think this years 6 nations will be tighter than ever before with every team capable of beating the other.

    The paddies day weekend finale, Ire v Eng in Dublin should decide it.
    Although Scotland may surprise a few, and the french actually look like a team again....Wales are still all over the show, and Italy have Parisse who could be player of the tournament.

    England are odds-on favourites with the bookies, which is no great surprise given the year they've just had. Think it could go to the final game though.

    The broadcasting company with the TV rights - don't they decide who wins? Same as the FArce Cup?

    No point saying I am not patriotic but look at the winter results. Ireland has got the bigger win beating the All Blacks out in the US and drawing the series 1-1. They also beat the Aussies too. So if I am confident that Ireland can do well and win it can you blame me????
