Ok, I know I'm in a minority here, but anyway...
Six Nations Championship kicked off this afternoon, with the following results:
France 30 - 12 Italy
Scotland 6 - 13 England
Ireland TOMORROW Wales
Judging by the performances so far, I reckon it will be a close thing between France, Ireland or Wales. Italy were brave, but could not withstand the onslaughts of France and ended up getting thoroughly stuffed. Scotland were good in parts and by rights should have won, but they choked/fumbled at every decent scoring opportunity. England were poor (just check all the stats!) but will be ecstatic over the win.
I reckon tomorrow's victors will give France a good game for the Championship. I can't see a Grand Slam this year though - many teams at a similar level, with anybody of causing an upset too. But if I have to pick a winner (unbiased view), I'd have to go with France. BUT...
Dewch 'mlaen Cymru!
My 2p. Anybody else?
