Thanks for the rugby coverage JT. Much appreciated. I predict Eddies charges are going to find staying champions harder than becoming champions. Personally I would like to see France re emerge as a power in European rugby, anyone really that can shut up those "swing low" cry baby Poms.

Nice pep talk from EJ to all contenders. Don't see the Italians as much of a threat though (anyone in the top 10 can beat SA these days).

Reckon the French are a potential banana skin for England in game 1 but I disagree with EJ, don't think Spedding is the fb the French need. Far too one dimensional imo. Hope the Scots, Welsh and French get a few pom/irish scalps, don't want these 2 to get too cocky.

It looks like Jsports isn`t showing 6N. Anyone know anywhere we can watch it on TV in Japan? I know I could always stream it.

Thanks, Goldorak! Of course I don`t have WOWOW, but now I know.

England has a lot of guys out with injury. Ireland favourites to take their 3rd title in 4 years.

The English have struggled in the 6 Nations. Since the 2003 World Cup, they've won the 6 Nations twice. France, Wales and Ireland have won more championships in that time.
