Six Nations Prediction Thread

Because wellers has gone to sleep.

One match day, one round, winner takes ALL.

  • Wales v Scotland (14:15)
  • Italy v England (16:45)
  • France v Ireland (20:05)

Scoring:

[X] team to win (1 point) by [Y] points (get it exact – 5 points, get it within 4 – 1 point)

Top point scorer on the day – 5 points

Top try scorer on the day – 5 points

Overall Winner - 5 points.

Who will win bonus points on the day (2 points for each predicted correctly, minus 2 points for each wrong prediction)

The first two games are reasonably straightforward but the third one is they key game and could go either way.  Ideally France will win.

I'm not sure you've fully grasped the notion of a prediction thread with specific questions...

I have but I don't think you've grasped the notion that I'm not interested in specific predictions but in the overall result of the competition as that is the thing that makes me money.

Scotland for the win against a disappointing Wales, win by 3

England thrashing Italy by about 35, Owen Farrell top points scorer of the weekend, Johnny May most tries 

France to beat Ireland by 10

England to win the tournament (even if Ireland win their game)

Opps.

And NZ to thrash Australia by 20 points to retain the Bledisloe Cup, as is only right and proper.

Wales v Scotland: Wales to win by 12

England v Italy: England win by 25

France v Ireland: Ireland by 6

Top point scorer: Owen Farrell

Top try scorer: Johnny May (sorry to copy you Warren but it's got to be the best guess. Next best guess would be Slade but he has only just joined squad)

England to win tournament. Think Ireland will score 3 tries, not 4.

Can't believe Nowell not in squad. Man is a legend.

We need some huge points difference with Italy because if Ireland win then it's a tie even if England get the bonus point and then it will come down to points difference and Ireland currently win on that basis with 38 to our 15.

Forgot that. For some reason I thought it went to match result in the event of a tie.

Ireland to win 6 nations. They looked decent last week.

Fully expect the world champions to win the 6 nations. 

Where's your predictions Jelly.  Walk your own talk and all that 

Scotland to win by 5

England to win by 26

Ireland to win by 7

Top point scorer on the day – Sexton

Top try scorer on the day – May

Overall Winner – Ireland

Bonus point for England

Scotland to win by 2

England to win by 43

France to win by 17

On the day - Farrell 

Tries - George 

Winner - england 

Tangent boy - nowell is injured - he ripped his toe ligaments but played the two finals regardless. He couldn't push off on that foot as there was no power! The man is a legendary, tough as old boots, old school player. He's bloody excellent as well.

Unfortunately I think he will always be like Manu - world class and straight in the team when fit, but hardly ever fit!
