This year’s Six Nations tournament will be one of the most important Six Nations for years as this is the final chance for the international teams to competitively trial their squads before the World Cup begins in September. England will be hoping to perform at their very best during this tournament considering they have struggled in the past 3 Six Nations tournaments. The last time England were successful in winning the Six Nations was back in 2011, before the previous World Cup. Therefore, they will be looking to be on top of their game in order to hit form before the World Cup.
This year’s tournament will kick-off at the Millennium stadium tonight between Wales and England; both teams who are hoping to impress at the World Cup. Arguably, this clash is regarded as the most exciting in the Six Nations, with both teams being world class and both being Home Nations, having competed against each other for most years since 1883. Wales’ head coach Warren Gatland wanted the opening match to be played under a roof on the Millennium Stadium. Yet, England boss Stuart Lancaster didn’t accept this as the last time they played under a roof in 2013, Wales dominated 30-3.
Wales vs England is the only Six Nations match taking place on Friday night as the other two matches in round one will happen on Saturday. The first match on Saturday is being held at the Stadio Olimpico in Italy, as the hosts take on defending champions Ireland. The Irish will be expecting a victory on Saturday, but in the Six Nations, anything can happen. For the final match of round one, Scotland are set to travel to the Stade de France for a tough match against the French. Every team will be looking to play their hearts out in preparation for the World Cup, but who will come out on top in the Six Nations 2015?
