Just got my ticket for France v England in Paris, in March. Thought I'd open a thread on how you see the final table. I'd probably go:


But it is a rather traditional view.....

Not been following it much since we won the World cup, but i will have to say England

Whats interesting is that the Triple Crown winners will recieve a trophy for the first time in its history. It has been somewhat of a mythical prize in the Six Nations, but now the best placed home nation will recieve a silver dish commissioned by the sponsors The Royal Bank of Scotland..

First time I heard of that, and not before time.

What a result, England crushing Wales, Ireland just getting through against Italy, and France going home with their tail between their legs. Unimaginable. The England pack ws particularly awesome, and for a change their tackling in the 3/4's was exceptional. Ireland were dreary, they seemed lost and without leadership although to be fair to Italy, their game has grown enonormously in the last 5 years. France I fear will bounce back with a vengeance, and they face Ireland on Saturday, so we shall see. England must be favourites now this year. Scotland the dark horses.

New Zealand has an incredible team as well. I saw them play England in the 3 exibition games last year and mopped the floor with them. Fun games to watch, though in America they come on aroun 4 AM. Its hard to catch all of it being on so late. But what the hell. You dont see matches like that every day.

agree entirely, they're still the strongest team on the planet

Now with France and Wales down and out, we could assume that England are favourites this year. Ireland seem almost indifferent, Italy are trying but don;t have the depth, and Scotland did their 10 year wonder thing but I doubt it'll be repeated. Maybe my top two of the original table switch places.
