    It is sooooooo unfair! I have been trying for ages to get me some tickets for this match and then my jammy friend comes along and wins two!!! And she doesn't even like rugby that much. She's taking her husband......but I want to go!!! Why can't I win tickets? Stupid non-contesting winning me!! :x :x :x :x :x :x

    6 nations tickets are like rocking horse poo. Unless your a member of a club, get corporate tickets or win them you've very little chance of getting any unless you want to fork out £250+! (believe me I've tried!).

    Oh and England by 7

    There, there, there......don't be too upset. At least your team should win at least one game !!! Scotland need all the help thy can get.

    Its going to be a tight one no question.Wales have been on great form during the autumn internationals , running the southern hemisphere sides very close.Their motivation will count for a lot and we are still looking jaded and lacklustre.

    As for eventual winners of the title /slam , I reckon Ireland could do it this year although hope to be proved wrong and see England finish at the top.

    Never underestimate France either, one of those teams who can turn it on one day and then have a stinker the next, but very dangerous never the less.

    Well, several years ago, my younger brother won two tickets to see an exhibition game at Twickenham before it was re-vamped. He asked me to go along. Now I have a passing interest in rugby union (prefer rugby league to be honest) so I agreed. Thing is, I cannot for the life of me remember who the match was between because we were plied with much free booze before the match! Still, was I complaining? No. And I got Rory Underwood's and Jeremy Guscott's autograph (which I wouldn't have done had I been sober!)

    Still, in the unlikely event of Arsenal reaching the Champions' League final, I'll go for every blasted competition there is! :)

    Wales v England on saturday- and where will I be?



    Can't tell you what time (pre draw and all that) but the results are out tea-timeish (I believe) and I for one will miss them as I will be trying to watch the game. A Welshman in Somerset on Wales v England day. Good if we win, not so good if we dont (the rugby I mean, although this applies to the Contest as well).

    Furthermore (rant...fume) there is a possibility I wont be able to watch the end of the match because of the bus drivers' hours!!!!!!!!

    The things I do "for fun".......:x

    England by 3 is my guess.

    I really don't like the idea of giving an 18 year old centre a place in the starting line up. Yes as a replacement at somepoint, but I think there could be one or two errors from him, however, Jason Robinson will be there to clear up any problems!!

    It's going to be the closest 6 Nations for a long time I think. Wales, Ireland, England and France can all win it on current form, whereas Scotland and Italy will be fighting over the wooden spoon.

    I'm thinking that Wales may just pull it off, but I'm thinking England by 7. :)

    Is Wilko still injured? If not, we'll win, if so...well, there's always Robinson.

    I reckon this is Wales' year but it's bound to be a close match. Wales by 3 is my guess.

    I'm not convinced that anyone'll get the slam this year. Ireland are looking strong, as are Wales and with all the injuries in the English squad it's unlikely that any one team will stand out. Should be a close championship. Right to the wire.

    I don't think Tait will be the problem, he's got a good head on him and he's playing with his club partner Noon so that should make him a bit more comfortable. Weak spot is definatley Hodgeson, pray he doesn't have another shocker like he did against Oz. No Tindall this time to pick up kicking duties :-?
