odds to win the tournament

France 11/8

England 2/1

Ireland 9/2

Wales 7/1

Scotland 12/1

Italy 50/1

anyone hear there's a game at twickenham this saturday? :P

looking at the odd's, wales at 7/1 each way says value for money. beat the english on saturday and with 3 home games theres a chance of welsh success. France at cardiff on the final day could decide it.

Wales have got an excellent chance, if they can get their forwards working properly.

Ireland should walk this but EoS appears to think that just doing what he did for the World Cup will work this time, no strength in depth and the central pairing is looking a lot shakier.

England - could be excellent could be incredibly rubbish

France - see above

Scotland - need to use their backs more - have no strength in depth but first 15 has the chance to get some decent scalps

Italy - will probably not get anything, but come damn close

Would obviously prefer England to win it but don't really mind because it's only egg-chasing.

.........just so long as Wales don't win.

Love it when they cry at Cardiff singing their national tune and then get stuffed out of sight. Absolutely love it .......

Its between England & France, the welsh are too weak up front and the rest of the six nations barring Scotland & Italy have equal back divisions.

As for Ireland they have missed their chance, there golden generation is over and are missing key men including flannery & O’Connol.

France are re-building with only 10 players from their world cup squad available ( injury, retirement or loss of form). As for England the current crop of young players is the best we have produced for decades and with the man-mountain lesley vainikolo adding power, pace to the backs , I fully expect them to be up there come the end of the tournament.

The problem is blending them Bazza - I'd love England to do well, but the retirement of Corey is a massive lost, for his skill, his guts and mainly his on field leadership.

I get the feeling that if it clicks then we'll be fantastic, and if we dont then we're in the ######

Ireland will probably scrape it by a really flukey win at Twickers on the last day

Flopsy Corey is a loss but England has huge talent coming through in the back row with the emergence of Haskell, Croft & Rees.

Ireland along with Wales are in disarray, their WC performance was woeful and seem to have a lack of backup to there fist XV. Both countries have major players missing, whilst both of there packs are sub-standard at international level. The French are re-building, but will be in the top two and Scotland & Italy will fight it out for the wooden spoon.

Losing Moody, Rees, Tindal and Strettle didnt help, nor Corey previously, or just having a collective brainfart, or playing ###### Balshaw.

But that would take away from ho good Wales were after the restart, and how bad england were.

England are in transition and will play good and bad rugby, but there was enough in the first half to be not that worried about.

Ireland on the other hand were dreadful all the way through the game

You're right Flopsy, yet another dreadful performance from Ireland. The World Cup wasn't a blip it seems. It was a victory at least and the bad showing was at least assuaged by...

.........just so long as Wales don't win.

You lot will never learn will you?

Agree with you flopsy. It was a shocking second half performance, but the quality of the first half means that doesn't worry me so much. The game should have been over before half-time and that slip-up will probably cost us the 6 nations, but if that first half is reproduced in the rest of the tournament then we may well not lose again.
