    Here we go again..

    So at the end of Week 1 we have wins for England, Ireland, and France. Any guesses as to the ultimate winner?

    As a Welsh supporter who is half English I am mainly dismayed at the lack of quality rugby from anyone this weekend. I'd pick France at this stage but not for a grandslam

    I have tickets for the Wales v France game, i'm not optimistic

    I'd like to see England win it but they will probably do their usual 'fall apart halfway through' routine.

    I think England were defensively strong against Wales on saturday but in attack they mainly only got chances due to our ineptitude (ignoring the unnecessarily consistent boot of Wilkinson). I think the French pack will trouble England significantly particularly in Paris.

    I think Ireland have the most strength and depth in their squad, while they were uninspiring against Italy they still managed a convincing win. I think the table will probably stack up similar to last year but with France at the the top (and Wales probably fourth)

    If Scotland finish higher than 5th and actually score a try I'll be happy.

    We were able to flukely beat the Aussies so hopefully we can scrape a couple of victories, but I'm not counting on it.

    This weekend we can look forward to Wales v Scotland at 2pm, France v Ireland at 4:30 pm on Saturday, and Italy v England on Sunday at 2:30 PM.

    I hope England can manage to beat Italy.
