Ireland is the only team so far unbeaten in this year’s Six Nations, but can they go all the way to end so many years of heartache?
It has been suggested that this was the last chance for the Golden Generation, but with Wales looking so strong, they weren’t much talked about as contenders for the title. Brian O’Driscoll has suggested that he prefers there to be lower expectations on his side – but that they have the inner belief to defeat all before them.
Now that France have beaten the Welsh, and following Ireland’s one-point victory over England on Saturday, it seems to be there for the taking.
Assuming Scotland do not upset the odds, the final match against Wales will be a tremendous occasion – it will not be the Grand Slam decider that once appeared to be on the cards, but can O’Connell, O’Driscoll, O’Gara finally deliver the dream?
What do you think? Who will win the Six Nations from here?
