RugbyFix Picks: 2011 Six Nations Round Three

Rugby picks for the third round of the Six Nations tournament

This weekend is the third round of the 2011 Six Nations. In what is shaping up to be the game of the tournament and a virtual play off for first, England host France at Twickenham Stadium. England and France are the only two undefeated teams left in the Six Nations, but that will all change this weekend. In other matches, Scotland plays Ireland at Murrayfield and Italy face Wales at Stadio Flaminio. Scotland need to salvage some pride in this tournament, as despite a promising 2010 they have lost both their tests in the 2011 Six Nations. However, Ireland will be hurting after their heartbreaking loss against France in the last round. Wales will be hoping to bank some points against Italy, but will be up against a typically stodgy Italy side at home at Stadio Flaminio.
