๐Ÿ‰ is a funny old sport, and I love it. And the Six Nations championship is it's own thing, always contentious, ever-present. But this year has been a weird one for sure.

So here are my reasons why we will be talking about this this time next year.

What we need today: to win setting up the final weekend Ireland v France showdown.

France are extremely committed to the breakdown, maybe too committed, numerous infringements (some called, some not) - but the hunger is apparent.

Live tooting from The Liberty NYC with @newyorkwelsh

Second half kicked off to an energised Scotland doubling down on turnovers. Scotland fire up hard looking for an English-style quick try but Italy manage to snuff out the effort.

Show thread

Half-time

Italy playing plenty of good but lacking the pace and precision needed. Turnovers abound with Scotland having turned over Italian ball six or more times.

See you in the second half!

I'll be live tooting the match but logistics will kick in as I relocate to Manhattan for - so bear with me ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Both teams looking for their first win of the tournament so expect Italy to come out guns blazing.

Italy have made no changes, new head coach certain he has the right players on the pitch.

Scotland have had 7-point margins on their two losses, so bonus point consolation, but a win is needed today.

:rygbi: I won't get to watch today as I'm at the conference in Washington DC, so I hope my fellow fans can keep me posted on the match.

First half wrapping up, clock is red, it's been a messy first 40, plenty of frustration for all players, but England managing to keep their composure. Scotland should try to slow things down, get the territory, and ruffle some white feathers.

Winner of the first half: Ciara.

Show thread

Four or five turnovers have gone ENgland's way already, but Scotland's forwards not showing any sign of being overpowered by the English front row. Scrappy scrums but plenty of movement across the field.

Show thread

We are kicked off in Edinburgh, after the bagpipes stopped halfway through the Scottish anthem and the crowd finished it in fine form.

Scotland will want to cycle some quick ball and put their stamp on the first few minutes.

visit for the Calcutta Cup, but they will arrive aroundabout the same time as Storm Ciara.

It promises to be a blustery day, both weather and temper, and there've been plenty of windy words in the lead-up, with Eddie Jones being Eddie Jones calling a "niggly" team, leading to some choice words from various players on both sides.

50 to 70 mph wind forecast, so we will see a battle of the forwards today.
