The 2019 Six Nations Kicks-Off With An Absolute Belter Of A Game
The 2019 Six Nations may still be several months away – but that doesn’t stop us looking forward to ‘Rugby’s Greatest Championship’ already.
As things stand Joe Schmidt’s Ireland are favourites to retain their title, having won a Grand Slam in some style this year. But their hopes of repeating that feat next year could be over after Round One.
Up first for the men in green is a visit of Eddie Jones’s England, arguably their closest rivals for the Championship. But Ireland will be confident given the game is taking place in Dublin, and their home record is pretty formidable.
