6Ns 2019

Long range forecast.
Both England and Wales will be far tougher propositions because this season is not a post Lions season.
Another GS is unlikely and the final game against Wales is likely to be the Championship decider.

Wales are away to France and Scotland and have England and Ireland at home. It'll be a tough task for them. They could fall flat on their faces if they lose the first game.


It'll be a tricky game. Gatland likes to keep the ball in play rather than five the opposition lineouts. They've also a disciplined defence which means there might be few lineout opportunities.

On the other hand, they have Ireland at home, a game that Ireland have never won under Schmidt

Joe loves a challenge.
Mind you so does Gatland.

England without Nowell, Itojie or Cokanasiga are weakened. Wales will be a tough nut. France embarassed themselves during the Authumn Internationals and there will be massive pressure to redemn themselves. They'll either come out all guns blazing or crack under the pressure.

You can Scotland to that mix. In all three games in the Autumn they looked strong up front with plenty of class and pace in the backs. Townsend is an excellent Head Coach and they'll be flying below the radar.
