so - who is gonna win?
a few predictions first.
England to win the championship.
No outright 6 nations grand slam.
Big Lawrence to figure heavily at blindside in later games.
Wales to miss shanklin more than Henson?
Italy being the whipping boys yet again?
I think England can do very well here but whats plainly obvious is that our back line is or was lacking some flair and pace in the November tests - none more so than against the all blacks.
If were to be champions outright again i feel this needs to be addressed.
I would back the pack to gain adequate possession but due to the problems mentioned previously i can see us being champs.
France are always scary, i just dont know what teams gonna turn up? Brilliance or terrible? Watching their first division they seem to have a wealth of world class wingers. Have to wait and see on that one.
Cant see scotland doing much. Just in a dire state.
Wales - pack struggled in the summer. Backs seemed fine but no henson and shanklin? Scrummaging at twickenham? who knows.
Ireland. Becomming like the french team of the early 90 s - either good, or poor. I see em midtable
Thoughts or predictions anyone?
