With the winter olympics now safely out of the way, and the soccer world cup a thankfully distant blip on the horizon, its time to focus on this year’s most important sporting event - the Six Nations Championship! Yes everyone’s favourite festival of xenophobia and rugby is at about the half way point and I for one am excited!
Now since our boys in green delivered a healthy hiding to the English, the Welsh can’t seem to play for more than 10 mins (maybe they should try the NFL ;P) it seems there’s only France and Ireland left in it. Who’s your money on? To my mind France are in the best position, with only Italy and England to come. Ireland will have to thrash either Scotland or Wales and hope England can do us a favour against les Bleus at Twickenham. Come on guys after Cromwell, the famine and the last 800 years, its not a lot to ask is it? :cheers
