Six Nations predictions for the weekend

It’s the grand finale of this year’s Six Nations, and what a showdown we have in store.

Ireland are on the verge of an historic Grand Slam, which would be their first for over 60 years. Warren Gatland has been playing the psychological games this week, attempting to instil hatred in his players of the Irish.

I don’t think this will work – I think Declan Kidney will have been playing videos of previous Irish near misses, and they’ll draw on the determination of Munster to eke out a victory any which way they can. It’ll be close, but hopefully it will be monumental.

Elsewhere, the French should beat Italy, although after their strong showing against the Welsh, the Azzurri may just cause an upset. My view is that the French will bounce back strongly from their Twickenham humiliation and win comfortably.

The Calcutta Cup game is difficult to call. If England carry on where they left off last week, they could come unstuck, but if they play as well as they did in the first half against France, it ought to be a Home win. There is so much history associated with this fixture that it’s hard to predict, and there’s certainly no love lost between the two sides.

Here are my SuperBru predictions for the weekend – let me know how you think the final weekend will unfold.

Game 13: Italy v France: France by 18
Game 14: England v Scotland: England by 12
Game 15: Wales v Ireland: Ireland by 4

  1. Your predictions were pretty close – well done.

    i was shocked by how many points the French beat the Italians as well, but bet on irealdn winning by less than 5 points so was really happy.

    Sad it’s over now – there’s like a big void in my life.

  2. Well done to Ireland on the Grand Slam win , they deserved it through scoring the tries . Their fans were gracious in victory.and the majority of Welsh support stayed to see the cup being handed over.

    A distraught Stephen Jones found time to exchange shirts with O’Gara and the Welsh team stayed on the pitch throughout the presntation ceremony to clap the Irish off . . Now Mr Gatland that is the spirit of rugby so please concentrate on the coaching and less of the mind games in future please.

  3. :-) Cheers Fakey , now for the EDF semis where we can get back to the “removing” of the breeding equipment bit followed swiftly by the drinking bit. I want a day out at Twickenham so come on the Ospreys for that one or even the Blues for once to make it a Welsh awayday perhaps !
