Starts on Saturday for folk interested.

Scotland v Ireland 

England v France

Italy v Wales

Looking forward to seeing how Scotland do, as I think this is probably the best team in years.

The paddies are looking strong, but with Glasgow playing so well, I think a wee upset is on the cards.

Scotland to finish second. England for the GS again and beat the all blacks record.

Used to love watching this back in the 70s before they diluted it by letting the Eyeties join.

Especailly Wales with JPR, Gareth Edwards and the incomparable Barry John. What a team.

Fuck Ireland 

You do realise it's made up of both sides?

Aye, Ireland is completely mixed in terms of support as its the entire island makes up the team.

I don't mind them and as far as rugby goes I like to see the country do well. Would you fuck see me wearing green or getting on like a gobshite leprechaun though

I've wondered how you guys feel when they stand facing the tricolour while the Soldiers Song is being belted out.

Fantastic for Scotland. Our team and Management is the best it's been for decades. 

England are one of the best in the World right now, so it'll be tough. But I'm dreaming that we could do it.

Watched the game today was a great result and all-round performance. 

Getting better but still need to polish a few aspects of our game but easily the best Scottish rugby team since the 95 World Cup when we had Hastings and Logan etc.

Well worth the win today against a good side in Ireland.

Thinking of getting tickets for the Italy game. Never been to Murrayfield before.

Would be interesting to hear the perspective of the NI Bears on this subject. Would've thought it would be hard for the guys from the North at times.

It's a good day out mate, it's a good atmosphere but completely different to a Euro night or Scum game at Ibrox. Plus you can get a few pints in while watching the game.

I'm not the best to answer this as I'm not a proper supporter of the team. As I said, I like to see them do well, but all that tri colour and soldiers song shite can take itself so far to fuck.

Tbh the rugby mates I do have aren't much into football and don't care all that much for politics. Obviously they don't wave the tri colour and don't join in on songs like that but for the most part I don't think they're fussed. I'd rather launch myself off a cliff than be near any cunt doing either of those things so I'm very much a casual telly fan when I can be bothered.

I'm from Belfast and would be into rugby and coach rugby as well, but I've no allegiance to the Irish team. I don't feel it represents NI, to me its a ROI side with one flag

I've noticed over the years that the northern fellas don't sing, guys like the Best brothers and Andrew Trimble.

Great result from Scotland. 

Our players could take a leaf out of their passion and desire, they leave nothing on the pitch and in Hogg I think we have the best player out of the lot, we have been getting better gradually and a big result like today was always on the cards.

I've always thought that Scotland lack an atmosphere at Murrayfield compared to the other home nations when they're at home. Hopefully that changes, but I doubt it.

Never been to twickenham or Dublin, but the millennium stadium atmosphere in Cardiff is probably the best atmosphere I've sampled away from an OF game, was at the Parc du Princes in the 90s and that was pretty good too.

Surely sold out and will probably cost a few quid. Just checked there are briefs but £35 and upwards and will probably sell quickly on the back of today. Good luck anyway. Maybe you and BP9 could go along together..
