LIFE AFTER BEATING THE ALL BLACKS

Last years tournament didn't go exactly to plan. The Ireland team seemed unorganised without the calming influence of some retired greats and they won only as much as they lost. Irish Rugby has bounced back after beating the one fixture that seemed unbeatable. Their victory over the All Blacks last year will give them all the confidence they need to become Six Nations champions again.

Ireland start off their campaign in Edinburgh against Scotland. A tough away game but an excellent chance to start their campaign off with a win.

GREAT EXPECTATIONS

There were doubts last year that new coach, Eddie Jones, would have had enough time to shape a 6 Nations winning team. A Grand Slam and undefeated streak later, England now face a very different kind of pressure. Easily the favourite to take the trophy again, the England squad is sure to form the backbone of the Lions squad this summer. Who will outdo themselves in the championship to earn their spot?

England will face France in their Twickenham Fortress to start off their campaign in what is sure to be an electrifying game. Can England get back to back Grand Slams?

GEARED UP WITHOUT GATLAND

Wales haven’t won the tournament in four years and now they need to do it without their most trusted General. Warren Gatland will be watching closely but the fate of Wale’s 6 Nations campaign is out of his hands. Rob Howley has taken temporary control of the iconic rugby side and the WRU has even enlisted Gold Medal winning Fiji coach, Ben Ryan, to help fill the void.

Wales have the talent and support to win the tournament and came a close second to an unstoppable English side last year. They will play Italy in Stadio Olympico first and will hope to seize those crucial new bonus points to start their campaign off with a bang.

ONWARDS

The most unpredictable of the 6 Nations, France have a rich if checkered history in this Championship. Having not made the top three spot in the 6 Nations since 2011, things have to improve. Guy Noves was newly in charge of the team last year and has had plenty more time to shape his plan this year. Will the old France return?

They'll have a tough job getting started. A first game away against reigning Grand Slam Champions is a daunting first game but if anyone can do it, France can.

FOUNDATIONS OF HOPE

Italy have languished in the 6 Nations for years but there is a sense of hope and purpose in the air as they head into the 2017 Championship. New Head Coach, Conor O'Shea might be just what Italy needed to make more impact in the tournament and with the seemingly immortal Sergio Parisse still on board, Italy could break from tradition this year.
Not to be underestimated, Italy will be the team to cause upsets and will be looking to capitalise on the transitional stages their opponents have found themselves in.

COTTERS LAST HURRAH

In recent years, Scottish Rugby, has been on the frustrating edge of great things. Two wins and three narrow losses last year was an improvement on the year before but still not good enough from a team that is brimming with potential. As this will be the last Championship for the attitude transforming Vern Cotter, Scotland will be looking to send the coach out with a rarely seen smile.

Scotland have a home game to kick things off against Ireland. They fell 10 points short last year in Dublin, they'll be hoping the home advantage makes up the difference.
