RugbyFix Picks: 2012 Six Nations Round One

Rugby picks for the first round of the 2012 Six Nations tournament

The 2012 Six Nations kicks off this weekend, where the best International rugby union teams in the Northern Hemisphere compete for one of rugby’s most coveted trophies. This weekend France host Italy, England host Scotland and Wales host Ireland. France will be hoping to continue their momentum from 2011, where they narrowly lost the World Cup final. England and Scotland both had disappointing World Cups; Scotland missed out on the quarter finals for the first time while England’s campaign was mired in controversy and they were eliminated in the quarter finals by France. Both will be looking to get their fortunes back on track. Wales reached the semi finals of the 2011 Rugby World Cup by beating Ireland in the quarter final, so their rematch is sure to contain fire works this weekend. Opening weeks of tournaments are always difficult to pick, with Ireland v Wales the head scratcher for this round.
