It's that time of year again as I gaze into my Six Nations crystal ball ahead of the weekend's action and make a complete and utter horlicks of predicting the results:
Wales v Italy
If I was Franco Smith I would be targeting this one as a possible upset. I can see the Italians giving it a right go but coming up just short. Wales by 6.
Ireland v Scotland
Ireland start favourites, no doubt, but Scotland surely can't be as bad as they were in the equivalent fixture in the World Cup pool stage. Ireland to edge this one but not by many.
France v England
Unconvinced by England's preparations and selections for this one and fear they'll be a million miles from the form showed against New Zealand in Japan. A young French side to win this by 5-10 points.
