here are my predictions:
Scotland to beat Italy by 18 points - Scotland have too much attacking potential for Italy to handle.
England to beat Ireland by 6 points - I think England may edge this to deny Ireland the Grand Slam but it will be tight and tense and I don't see loads of tries. England must get parity at the breakdown.
Wales to beat France by 10 points - I think Wales' greater fitness will tell in the last 20 minutes. if Wales finish 2nd you'd have to say its been a good season for them.

" England must get parity at breakdown"

I don't know where that is coming from. Ireland have lost Sean O'Brien Josh Van de Flier and stil have Dan Leavy
doing the business. England don't seem to have any No 7's or even No 6 's
Moody and Back where are they now.

Saying it is one thing, achieving it is quite different.

Eddie Jones with all his challenges in this seasons 6 Nations, it has now has been revealed that he has been filmed making derogatory and offensive remarks against the Welsh and Irish at an England sponsors event.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/43409476

Goodness know what he will be saying about Scotland & France following the losses this 6 Nations.

I’m sure the Irish will be impressed with Eddie ahead of Saturday’s game.

It’s obviously OK for him to be abusive, but not to be abused (not that I think the abuse he got was acceptable) Bit of a hypocrite.

from an Englishman I find these comments crass and inappropriate. why oh why would he say that. Ireland's team talk has been made for them hasn't it?. the Irish were hardly "scummy" last year, they beat us fair and square. I find this rant pretty embarrassing. what he said about Wales was also needlessly provocative and i'm sure that will be remembered by the Welsh crowd at Cardiff next year.

Filthy comments! Could you imagine such from Stuart Lancaster, Clive Woodward or Brian Ashton? I too find the comments embarrasing. We don't need this.

well that was a poor performance by Scotland which should've resulted in an Italian win. Italy played brilliantly for 50 minutes but why it is their fitness and discipline that always does them?. not being fit enough to me is inexcusable as an international side. credit to Scotland for digging out the result but they shouldn't have been let back in it by Italy.

Absolutely DKF - can’t disagree with anything’s you have said. 3 wins for Scotland in the 6 Nations as far as I am concerned is a good return.

What has happened to England? When they beat Wales to make it 25 wins from 26 there was nothing to suggest the impending implosion. I can understand one bad day at the office, but all of a sudden they look like a poor to average team just weeks after being lauded as one of the favourite s for the World Cup in 18 months' time. All the talk at the start of the 6N was of them winning an unprecedented third outright title (unprecedented because the title was shared when two teams finished level on points for the first 100 years...) but now they've had their worst finish in as long as I can remember. Have they just been lucky for the last two years or has something fundamental broken?

Joking apart, EJ needs an attack coach, clearly he’s not up to it. He also needs a balanced back row. I am frankly astonished how poor England have been in their last three games.

England have clearly regressed in their attack this season, that is obvious. why the richest union in the world can't hire a proper attacking coach is beyond me. I hate to say it but some of the players are living on past reputations and not current form. the England team needs a massive shake-up and I hope Eddie has the guts to take a young team to South Africa in the summer, why should the Armand's and Slade's of this world keep on never getting a chance. some of these players are just not good enough any more, apparently EJ has said on 5 live that some of the players there today won't play for England again, I hope he sticks to his guns.
