    Its that time of year again! The Six Nations start this weekend and who will win it is anyone's guess as this is probably the most open tournament in years, last years Grand Salm winners Wales have a new man in charge following Warren Gatland's decade long run in charge and its fellow Kiwi Wayne Pivac at the helm now.

    Wales 42-0 Italy
    Ireland 19-12 Scotland
    France 24-17 England

    A complete demolition job for Wales over Italy given them a bonus point, Jonny Sexton scored every point for Ireland in a nervy game against Scotland for which Stuart Hogg had a costly try-line gaffe where he dropped the ball, France were impressive and were 17-0 up at half time and then it was 24-0 until England suddenly woke up, two Johnny May tries gave the visitors hope but it was too late really.

    First half was a horror show for an England fan

    If I'm Italy, I'd want to smash the daylights out of my next opponent after getting wrecked 42-0. I still think this is a talented pool of rugby countries to where any of these six can win it all. There is not really any true favorite of mine. I guess of this weekend's games, I love the Ireland vs. Wales match.

    Ireland 24-14 Wales
    Scotland 6-13 England
    France 35-22 Italy

    Confident performance from Ireland to beat defending champions Wales in a bonus point win, very cagey game between Scotland and England in some terrible weather, the match was 3-3 until 10 mins to go, France scored five tries in a bonus point win over Italy.

    No Six Nations this weekend as it takes a week break, it will be back next weekend.

    What team(s) or player(s) have you all been impressed with so far? Any surprise (good or bad) performances?

    Ireland v Italy has been postponed because of the Coronavirus, there has been an outbreak of the disease in northern Italy in the last week with 11 confirmed deaths, the game was due to be played on March 7th, we should know the new date for the match in the next few days.

    That's sad. Coronavirus needs to be defeated. I hope everyone will be alright.

    It was supposed to be the final day of this years Championship tomorrow but all three games are now postponed because of the virus, Wales v Scotland was going ahead right up until this afternoon but its now off.

    No-one really knows when the remaining games will be played, I've heard it will be sometime in the Autumn, I have updated the table in the original post following last weekends two games and I'll keep you updated with any news regarding the last few games.
