Here are the TF Six Nations Round 3 predictions:
France v Italy
France's selection policy remains barking mad and I wouldn't have it any other way! Italy have a great chance here but, with the match being played in the hotbed of the Stade Velodrome on Friday night in Marseilles, I do see France shading this one by 3 to 6 points.
Ireland v Wales
Does the selection of Dan Biggar for Wales signal a return to Warrenball? Certainly the Welsh will need to improve their aerial game significantly to succeed in Dublin. This will either be very close indeed or a comfortable win for Ireland. I suspect that latter.
Scotland v England
Every 2 years we're told that Scotland will send the English homeward tae think again and very occasionally it does happen, but not to this English team. I expect England's tight five to impose themselves and the "finishers' to wrap this one up. England by 9-12.
