Six Nations 2007

3 Feb

So we’re on the verge of another Six Nations. With the Autumn Internationals a distant memory all the nations go into this championship with one eye on the World Cup and finding the right blend to give them success.

Looking at the recent form of all the countries it looks like this year could be a close contest. With England having the likes of Jonny Wilkinson and Jason Robinson back in their team and the debut of Andy Farell, they could be a force once again. Scotland have some injury worries and i think they will not achieve the same level of play as they did last year.

Ireland were awesome in November and look like the side that will take the Grand Slam, but they have a tough test against Wales first up. Wales had an ok Autumn but I think Gareth Jenkins had made some interesting choices in his selection. Although Gavin Henson is arguably one of our best players I think it is right he was kept out of the 22. I think we will miss Tom Shanklin in the centre as he has been in excellent form since returning from injury.

I hope that Wales produce a performance and don’t get steamrollered.
