    Geez, I may have signed up and then completely forgotten about it, sorry about that! I did a Super Rugby league last year, but I think I'll stick to tournaments like 6N rather than full seasons...

    You know what, I was thinking sexton was retiring but I think I was confusing people saying he won’t be around in the next World Cup with him retiring now. Is he retiring?

    I am generally favouring home advantage here which is why I have gone England top and Ireland then Wales if their fixtures were reversed so would my prediction same with Scotland France.

    Ireland need to diversify their game plan some what IMO it has been found out and nullified fairly frequently of late, I’m sure there are some descent quality opposition it would still work for however the teams in the 6 Nations know each other pretty well.
    Genuinely not sure what France will turn up IF England can beat them I fancy them for the slam, I like to think they have learned and won’t **** the bed.

    Slow day at work and was looking through how schedules affect the tournament. Looked at grand slam deciders and found it interesting that since the six nations began no grand slam team beat Scotland or Italy in their last game.

    Most common was beating France (x4) and then England and Ireland (x3) and Wales once. Would suggest you need the easier hit outs to allow recovery for the bigger games. Not a huge discovery and I think most people would agree Ireland and France have the easiest schedules but anything to pass 20 mins.

    P.S. If anyone wants to make some money the scores from the Wales and Ireland games this weekend are on Wikipedia. Good start from Pivac, laboured from Farrell.

    So, you suggest this first weekend is potentially good news for Ireland and Wales, While England and France face a steeper challenge? Interesting... Not a huge sample size, obviously...

    Short term yes but long term not so much. Italy in Round 1 or 5 aren't a great draw because then you have 4 "loseable" games in a row. Round 2 and, moreso, 4 are generally the best time to get them.

    Looks like I've been right so far about France coming on good (although I didn't predict they'd beat England) and Wales being a disappointing, at best mid-table team this year.
