Wales v France kick off the tournament tonight at 8pm on BBC1. Coverage starts at 7.25pm.
You can tell by my avatar who I support....besides any other of the teams besides England lol!
My money would have to go on Ireland this year, but I am secretly hoping Warren Gatland has Wales sorted.

Wales v France

Best of luck everyone!

French rugby is in trouble, expecting a Welsh triumph, but you can never predict the French.

I am hoping this will be a good tournament. I always look forward to the Six Nations. Usually good rugby and a signifier that Spring is on the way.

I always support England, being English. Then Wales as got a bit of that in me (mother = Welsh), so I'm with you on that one. However, I also have a respect for the perpetual underdog Italy, and always smile when they win a match.

Not really bothered who wins as long as it's not Scotland.

Nothing worse than Scottish fans when they win something.

Probably why God made them crap at sports.

Well we are in the lead over the French, but only just, and like you say you can never predict the French.

I always smile when the Italians pull off a win too. That's the wonderful thing about 6 Nations, it's the quality of the match that counts, and the mutual respect and tongue in cheek banter.

Expect for an English fan when they.... well all the time really.

Still could be worse, you could be Italians.

Being Italian is worse than being English?

Learn something new every day as they say

The truth seldom is.

I think Eddie Jones might agree with me.

I turn of the tv
I turn off the radio
I avoid my countries social media blurbs
I run to the hills
I climb into a deep dark cave
I fashion a makeshift generator
I build a wifi antenna out of a tree and some minerals I found in a rock
I create a mobile phone from dead wombat bones and stalactites
I drink salty limestone water to satiate my thirst during this hard endeavour
I start a small fire near an open vent to warm my aching bones
I catch small furry animals and prepare them to eat
I spend 2 weeks fermenting a brew made from these strange little red berries and some bread I made earlier and forgot to mention.
I sit back, with my little animal snack, my home brew, and I grab my phone
I am FREE of this thing called rampant sports!!!!!
I head to ATS.

OH. My solitude, my cave, why have you forsaken me


hehehe..


bloody sports...

Update!! Someone kicked a ball


Seriously, they did..

haha, Oh, I know I'm being a stick in the mud, but.. when you live where I do, it's on every fta channel and holy buckets, how much can a koala bear.

I mean, I was sitting at home last Sunday morning, me mate boomerang
Said he was having a few people around for a barbie, said he might kookaburra or two
I said, "Sounds great, will Wallaby there?"
He said, "Yeah and Vegemite come too"
So I said to the wife, "Do you wanna goanna?"
She said, "I'll go if dingos"
So I said, "Wattle we do about Nulla?"
He said, "Nullabors me to tears, leave him at home"
I said "Like the footy.." and the whole scene faded into a softly lamented sullen dream...

O.o
