    The competition starts again in Europe's premier international tournament kicking off with the Italians going to France.

    Currently the Italians are leading 18-10 with about half an hour to go.

    Good to see it back and the matches were intriguing also. it appears to be even more physical than previously. 6 day turnaround will be tough for some. with the fixtures this year I think have a real chance to win the Slam.

    Who France or England? Due to those are the only sides who can achieve a Grand Slam after match day 1.

    Rugby is an amazing game watching brute force v brute force pretending not to be injured, then you watch the premier and you see pussies v pussies pretending to be injured,

    Should get a win in Rome mate. Scotland have most definitely improved leading up to,during & after the World Cup,I still see progress in this Tourny,I say well done & carry on Scotland. They are becoming much much less dependant on Laidlaw....which is a very good thing.

    check your birth certificate Stim you can't be English

    its a typical build up to knock down situation with England

    sadly Wales should have gone to the next level also but they can not see games out against big sides

    No that's a bad call,sorry. Not Foul Play at all. He hasn't lead with his head,he hasn't lead with his shoulder,he has offered himself upright with arms open,hands open and motioned correctly to make a clean tackle. Once committed to that,it's not his fault the Player is on the way down prior to contact. Bad Call. We're seeing this again & again these days. It's a Contact Sport and that was clean play. Bad Call.
