The weekend is very nearly here, and for all the negative press about the Friday night Six Nations match, it does mean that we won’t have to wait too long to see some rugby.
France take on Wales tonight in what could be a real challenge to Wales supremacy – although Les Bleus may have had a better chance if they had selected a fly-half.
On Saturday, there is a recipe for a real classic – Scotland against Italy! And then there’s Ireland versus England at Croke Park, with the men in green still chasing their dream, and the men in white still chasing some respect.
What do you think will happen? Will Marc Lievremont surprise us again with a victory? If they close down Jamie Roberts and Andy Powell, will they have a plan B now that Shane Williams is back?
Will England get some revenge for their thrashing in Dublin two years ago? Can Toby Flood cope with the pressure, or will he be exposed by Ronan O’Gara?
And will Italy beat Scotland again? Let us know what you think…it’s better than doing work on a Friday.
