How many home games do Ireland have?

England will likely finish 4-1 like every year except 1 since 2011. They will fold somewhere, probably against Ireland.

Ireland have 3. Away to England and away to France, home to the rest.

Away to France first game, win that and we should be good for a final day winner takes all.

We've simply got to beat the Sweaties first up, otherwise it's going to be a long and grim 6 Nations.

Week 1 - all the home teams to win
Week 2 - all the away teams to win
Week 3 - all the away teams to win
Week 4 - all the home teams to win
Week 5 - all the home teams to win

I have absolutely no idea where that leaves Wales at the end of the tournament though.

Yep - they will really fancy their chances of some revenge for last year.

Ireland could well come to Twickers with a Grand Slam in their sights - that'd be a very tough game.

If that is correct, then BP's will decide the overall result.

Scotland can beat anyone ... not even on their day ... they just can. If you don't prepare for it, they can take you ... right, Ireland ?

Engerland will be the ones to feel most secure, but that means nothing if you have been ambushed.

Dark Horses indeed this year and the NZ match-up really adds nothing to how their players are already performing this season.

Great to see a highly competitive 6Ns !!! Apart from Wales, that is ... :( :( :(

Ireland need 4 wins this year. Haven't had that for 3 years I think which is poor.

It's a horror start.

Home against a resurgent Scotland; away to an arrogant England; back to Wales for the insufferable Irish.

I fear its going to be grim.

Week 1 - Wales away. We should win this. Wales are poor currently and Scotland have a lot of quality and belief. Need to get this big away win to get this monkey off our back.
Week 2 - France at home. Should be a win.
Week 3 - Calcutta Cup at Murrayfield. England will bring their usual ultra-negative game plan to Murrayfield and I'm afraid it will work once more, a low-scoring loss on the cards. We really need to have our backs flying all over the place from minute 1 to have a chance.
Week 4 - Ireland away. Will be close, but a bridge too far.
Week 5 - Italy away. Easy win.

So 3 wins from 5. Decent but ultimately disappointing.

For Wales - I can see us losing to Scotland first up & losing to England in Twickenham - all signs point to a third loss in Dublin - but we rally and put in our one good performance to beat the Irish. We then scrape past Italy & France to end on a high.

Scotland to beat Australia on the weekend.

The poms to fall over themselves laughing about it. Only to also get beaten by Scotland in the 6N. Scotland dark-horse 6N Champions.

To be fair that was literally Eddie's first game in charge. Also can't help but notice that only one team scored any tries on that day

They nilled to expansive Scots the time before that at Murrayfield. I'm still angry they arsed about the last quarter while 20 points up. It cost them the championship on PD.

Loooook at them damn Anglos getting all high and mighty now that they've got a proper Australian coach making sure they play right ! :D

Hey, you heard it here first: France to lose 4 out of 5. They get practically the worst possible calendar for them because although they host 3 (with only 2 away games), they use up two of their home games by playing the two best sides in Paris, Ireland and Eng, which they're simply a level below and don't have the gameplan and organization to fight off over 80min. Their only possible saving grace would be one of those matches where most of their best players pull a huge game out their butts, individually, and their combined efforts somehow mount into an ugly not fully intended win. And then the two teams that are accessible for them, they play away at Murrayfield and Cardiff, so two more losses. Basically thank you Italy for being there so they don't get the very bottom place. Basically.

Yeah it was. But they were trying trick plays, chuckling at knock-ons, walking to the set piece and generally being plum against a Scotland team who were clearly already beaten. They could have won the championship in that 1/4 with a bit of application. I was fuming at the time because they'd contrived to blow a decent PD lead in Cardiff in that game the year before. :uhoh:

You'd think they have grasped the importance of taking points where and when you can.
