Hard to argue that France aren't favourites, such a strong squad. I wouldn't put any of my own money on them winning the 6N though...

Don't think there will be a slam,could come down to the last weekend. Think England will lose to Scotland but pick up a LBP.

Biggar to captain Wales while “The Warrior” is out. Strange call really with his gob because if he gets on the refs wrong side he’s had it
Good point! He’s a top,top player and seems okay off the pitch,he’s just a nightmare on it. As bad as any footballer,although Wales have a few tbh when it comes to refs. I can’t think of a worse international team when it comes to that
Good assessment. We’re very much a blight on the sport.

England will either be 2-3 or 3-2

Sorry to be a pain but I’ve seen it in multiple articles. The 6N doesn’t start a week Saturday,it’s the week after! None of these articles being proofread?

Farrell in after not playing since November and the twice Premiership player of the month isn't included - he's gone full Eddie there.

Some curious selections to and omissions from the England squad. But as a selfish Tigers supporter, I'm quite happy to have the most recent premiership player of the month playing for Tigers rather than England.

…how far have we come in 18 months though?
Freddie, Heyes and Chessum have made a huge impact for us …Dolly, Martin, JVP, Reffell (England tbc) , Kelly and Whitcombe have been massive too …add our stalwarts of the Youngs, Wells, Ford and Cole and we up make up the majority of our national team

Plenty of people are suggesting that Slade should play 12. It worked well against South Africa, but I can’t remember how well he played there in previous performances for England?

With a midfield of Smith, Slade, Marchant you probably need some heft elsewhere in the back line. A back three of Hassell-Collins, Steward, and Nowell is pretty solid and offers some carrying options. Dombrandt is also used by Quins to carry in midfield. It works well off front foot ball, but can he tidy up scraps?

I'm guessing that this is if Farrell is unfit to play. Eddie has said that if Faz is fit, he plays and is captain. Or maybe Eddie will test Faz's versatility and play him in the back row, like Kini :smt003

Apparently Smith needs Farrell to run the game for him!
