As millions of people across the country wake up to snow this morning and use it as an excuse not to go to work, here are some reasons why you should look no further than The Rugby Blog this week for all your Six Nations build-up.
A highlight this week will be an interview with The Raging Potato – Keith Wood will be talking to us at a promotional event for Bushmills on Wednesday in Covent Garden, and we’ll get his thoughts on the Six Nations contenders. Leave a comment here if there are any questions you’d like us to ask…
We’ll also be requesting your thoughts on who you think will win this year’s event, whether Wales can deliver under the weight of expectation, whether England can deliver without any expectation, and whether Ireland and France can raise a few eyebrows.
We look forward to team announcements this week which normally warrant extensive debate, and we’ll have a few feature articles as well on the prospects for some of the nations.
Of course, we won’t be forgetting the Guinness Premiership and we’ll have a full review of the weekend’s action as Gloucester returned to the top of the table. And if there is any other breaking news, such as Dan Carter being out of action for six months, we’ll mention that as well.
