Picking An Injured Six Nations XV

Sidelined.

The Six Nations gets underway this weekend, but without a number of injured stars. Wales are the worst affected, with top names such as Sam Warburton, Taulupe Faletau, Dan Biggar and Rhys Webb set to miss some or all of this year’s competition.

England also have a pretty lengthy list of absentees, with Lions Elliot Daly, Jack Nowell and Kyle Sinckler just some of the names set to miss games this year.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

Ireland will be without Jared Payne, Rhys Ruddock, Dave Kilcoyne and Garry Ringrose to name just a few. Scotland meanwhile are facing a crisis in the front-row with Ross Ford, Zander Ferguson, Fraser Brown and WP Nel all out.
