The RBS Six Nations tournament is almost upon us as it begins in just over two weeks’ time with the opening game being a fantastic clash between Wales and Italy at the Millennium Stadium, on 1st February 2014. On the same day only a few hours later, England open their Six Nations campaign against a tough French side, who have won the Six Nations the most since it started back in 2000. Whilst England have to travel all the way to France for their first match, Scotland only have a short flight to Ireland to open their campaign a day later than the others.
All of the squads that will play at the RBS Six Nations have been announced after Scotland released their squad list earlier today. Scotland and Wales have both gone for the option of taking the more experienced players to the RBS Six Nations and hoping that the higher capped players know how to defeat the other teams. However, England’s coach Stuart Lancaster has gone for pace as he has included a few young, pacey and uncapped players to the tournament. Ireland, Italy and France have all changed their squads dramatically as many of their players are currently injured.
Wales have managed to win the RBS Six Nations tournament consecutively in the past 2 years, impressively winning the Grand Slam and the Triple Crown in 2012. In recent years France have not been playing so well, meaning the true contest is expected to be between England and Wales, yet the Six Nations is a tournament that can never be predicted. Scotland and Italy are yet to win the tournament which will surely give them some motivation to win it for the first time; yet, looking at the squads and coaching teams, England and Wales look the most likely to prevail as victors.
