Can be club, country...is it a regular season local derby, is it an int'l flavored club game (Euro or SR), a June or November int'l, or right around the corner a 6N fixture.. ?

It's Feb, early in the year... oh and btw NZ and Eng fans can't answer that question, yeah sorry.

I'm interested to see Uruguay v USA this weekend in the Americas Rugby Championship. The yanks are going for a Slam down in Montevideo.

England vs Ireland, 17th of March.

Managed to get tickets to HQ through a connection. We've booked in the Range Rover for a valet and wash the day before, just to make a good impression, which is probably more important than the match itself.

Come on England!

I'm...I'm sorry. I'm troubled by the fact you added a little speech bubble in the corner of your post. Is this implied criticism, that my thread is incomplete and cold and lacks expressiveness - is my thread not good enough for you ??!!!!! *runs away hysterically*

I'm gonna say..whichever French club makes it to the semi at the Champions Cup. Can't say I'm particularly eager for the France tour of NZ this summer. Yeah. Can't quite say that.

That will be massive. It seems it will be in Los Angleles ? Oh-Oh ! Neutral venue ?!

so will all know what this means : who will be next in the 6N.

Game of the year for me, both teams will be filling big teams surely, in a winner takes it all game.

To be honest, i don't see Georgia being even close to Italy...

given the competition this year, they should only be awarded half a star. That is, if they make it out of the quarter first. :roll:

Was probably going to be the non-event of the year...but the stupid Wales v Scotland game in November will likely be a ripper now with Scotland looking to exact revenge!

I'm pretty excited for the women's premiership final. 1st season in a much elevated status for the league, greatly improved team play, record attendances everywhere and a ton of great to watch Rugby. It should be fun.

Otherwise it was England-All Blacks but England haven't really kicked on these past 6 months, in fact they seem to be going backwards.

I'm looking forward to the Leinster Sarries QF. The form side and tournament favourites (at home) v the Plucky underdogs and defending Champions. It'll probably turn out one sided but neither side will be leaving anything behind.

I also find such games a little less stressful than England games - I'll be supporting Sarries but they aren't my team.

Who is your team? If it's not Scarlets or Wales I do not stress. But for the Scarlets games, I am a wreck - feeling nauseous hours before kick off. For one of the Euro SFs, I coudn't sleep the night before. Ridiculous I know, but I lurv my hometown team.

Wasps - but I'm not a die hard supporter - club games, even European ones, don't tie my guts up like Internationals.

The Scarlets Rochelle match should be a great game too - two 'rookie' sides with a chance of a SF. Get that far and who knows what might happen. I'll probably cheer the Scarlets on, especially if Sarries get knocked out.

Don't think the NPC draw has been announced yet, that will determine Log fixtures. Hope we get to grind you into the dust early and often :thumbup:

You've lost your super coach and we've lost our [insert opposite of super] coach so it should be a good match up.

Otherwise it was England-All Blacks but England haven't really kicked on these past 6 months, in fact they seem to be going backwards.

They hit their ceiling collectively just about during that invincible span. Eddie Jones may be the best coach in the world, but he's no magician. Well actually wait, beating the Boks with Japan...... lemme rephrase: Eddie Jones may be the best coach in the world, and a magician, but he's no god. There's a lot of strain that comes with consistent winning, teams prepare harder for you, and there's an emotion fatigue from the constant grind. And an on-form B.Vunipola is half the team he plays for, okay 1/4, and he hasn't been there.

The AB maintain their level of excellence by having so many arrows to their bow: they've got so many strengths they can go to. England can't afford that luxury, they're not THAT good. They're very good at what they do, but they're still limited inherently. The AB are flat-out unplayable when they decide to be. England weren't just going to improve exponentially from 2016 to 2019. But they're still the second best side in the world.

We've the 6 Nations, 3 matches against Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, a tier 2 nation and possibly a fourth, Chicago style Autumn test to play this year. Would be great if we could organise that extra test against South Africa and have a crack at every major side in the same year!

Obviously the England at Twickenham and NZ at the Aviva matches stand out from that list - but I'm looking forward to the 3 match series down in Oz the most. It should be a real opportunity to try some new options, blood some really exciting new stars and further develop our attacking game.
