Wales look formidable but had lots of players in the Lions tour of Australia unlike France. England are shuffling their backs bringing in a new wing and scrum half. Italy and Scotland are getting better and better.

I don't know if it'll be as close as last year but it looks interesting. I just wish England were more settled before the world cup in 2015.

Anyway here are this weekend's fixtures:
Saturday
Wales v Italy 14:30
France v England 17:00
Sunday
Ireland v Scotland 15:00
I don't know what that will be US time but I think the France v England is around midday. Both matches here

I don't think you care about the sports you post here about. I don't think you've ever played any sports.

And as per your post count, you're a major geek.

I played Cricket and Rugby to a very high standard and also Athletics (400m, 800m and 1500m) and swimming. I had a big interest in Football but wasn't that good, the same with tennis and hockey

There are plenty of sports fans on here, you've been watching too much tv

I hope so, but Wales look so strong at the moment. That'll be a hard hitting match though.

Both matches will be here: http://www.coolsport.tv/stream38.html

The Italians have agreed to play with the Millennium Stadium roof shut - from press reports that appears to be so even if it doesn't rain today (and only slight rain is forecast for the match). It rained all day yesterday but the roof was shut then, so the pitch will be fine whatever. Thing is it is really windy in Cardiff today, so if I was Italian I would have wanted the roof open in the hope of the wind putting Leigh Halfpenny off a bit.

Well in 14 years Italy only won 1 (one) match away .... the coach has promised that this year target is to win at least another away match, we are lucky also Scotland is in the 6 nations to take the wooden spoon :-)

But despite lack of success in the competition since Italy entered 6 nations it is going a lot better in the world rugby ranking, and there are increasingly more youths playing rugby in schools, good for the future. Only 20 years ago rugby was a completely niche sport here.

There are lots of great Italian players (Bergamasco comes straight to mind) so you have massive potential. You beat France last year! France won the wooden spoon last year, Scotland the year before so Italy will become a power in European rugby

nope, but I lost 30kg in the first 3 month. And my superiors were very happy with my dedication.

HaaaHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ha ha HAA!

I swore to myself for like 10 minutes that the pic of Picard and Gandolf was PhotoShopped, until I scrolled through the Twitter feed and realized it really did belong to Patrick Stewart.

That look on Ian McKellen's face is beyond epic. He couldn't look more befuddled if Saruman shoved his staff up his butt.
