I see patronising BBC website has "6 things you didn't know about the 6 Nations"

Actually 5 of them I did know, and the 6th (that Scotland have a squad weighing the same as 466 Scottish terriers), I neither wanted to know, nor believe to be accurate. Some of those Scottish terriers might have been feasting on deep fried Mars Bars and be overweight. In other words, their squad might only be the equivalent weight as 465 or 464 Scottish Terriers.

Unless someone weighs four hundred and sixty something Scottish Terriers, we will never know. BBC Fake news! :roll:

Fox News possibly knows more about the weights of certain canines.

No Rob Kearney - Not sure I'll bother watching now. :D

Gwan. That Ireland team should be disappointed if they can't win this. In other words Ireland expect to win this game, but it should be close enough.

The pack will stuggle without Hendo but there is enough Stockdale in the backs to dig them out...again.

Gatland thinks wales will win the 6N if they can beat the French. The french are fielding the fatest ever pack. I predict a festival of bore.

Henshaw at 15 is pure Joe

Say nothing but — ruin England’s defensive preparation with a curve ball selection at full back

thus the potential of a three man mid field attack — instead of the much used Sexton loop that the English back row have been expecting and I am sure practiced defending

Youre not ... no, you can't be .... shirley not ... I can't believe it ...



Are you suggesting ...that the fullback might come into the line when we're attacking? :shock:

Whodda thunk! :duh:

But Capt its not something Kearney does well - Kearney is a run in to contact full back not renowned as a passer .

Thus full back into the line is not a common play for Ireland .

Now that I expect it will happen much against the English but it maybe effective when it occurs.

Don't worry Cap, I've tricked him into thinking Ulster has a pack.
