6 Nations Pool & discussion - 2013

Following the reasonable success of last year's pool, thought we'd give this another go : so welcome to the 2013 official 6 Nations championship pool/discussion thread.
The championship starts on Saturday with Wales/Ireland (followed by England/Jockland then Italy/France on sunday).

Simply rank the team according to the order in which you think they will finish in the standings using the code form below (1pt per correct answer) :

Code: Select all

- 1:
- 2:
- 3:
- 4:
- 5:
- 6:

Tie-Breaker : top try scorer is from which country ?
Teams : England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, Wales

Prizes :
- 1000 points for 1st place
- 700 points for 2nd
- 400 for 3rd

- 100 per entry
Fixtures list :
http://www.rbs6nations.com/en/matchcent ... esults.php
Closing date is set for saturday February 2nd - 13:00GMT
[/notice]

Should be an interesting tournament : Defending champions Wales were terrible over the autumn, Italy keep getting better, Scotland are still Scotland, Ireland are solid but need new players, France looked good and England are coming off the back of a great win against the All Blacks... so who knows ?

OOooh yeah - things kick off today with Wales-Ireland (should be interesting) and then England-Scotland (less interesting - there's no way scotland will come close to beating England)

Totally psyched about this - better go buy me some beers in preparation :lol1:
