6 Nations News

Scotland v Wales 6 Nations news:

Wales recall Sam Warburton, Alun Wyn Jones & Paul James for the Saturday clash between two of the three Six Nations contenders Scotland & Wales.

Wales bring in the three forwards for Saturday’s Six Nations visit to Scotland, the earlier game on Saturday.

However Ryan Jones remains Captain for the rest of the Six Nations so Sam Warburton has been relieved of the captaincy, so he can “focus on his own game”.

Warburton, 24, started the campaign as skipper and returns to the starting line-up after injury for Saturday’s visit to Scotland but Ryan Jones will continue to lead the side and retain the armband for this clash and the final game against England, all being well.

Meanwhile for Scotland, Glasgow stand-off Duncan Weir will make his first start for Scotland in Saturday’s Six Nations match.

Ireland v France 6 Nations News:

Jonny Sexton is ruled out of the Ireland v France clash leaving an Irish vacancy.

Jonathan Sexton is ruled out and Paddy Jackson is also a fitness concern.

Both Ireland and France will be looking to salvage something from this years tournament having both had disappointing results in the past two games (the last 3 for France) in the later kick off on Saturday.

England v Italy 6 Nations News:

England face Italy on Sunday afternoon and will be form favourite in front of the home crown, having been unbeaten in this years tournament and facing a team who has lost it’s way after the starting weekend victory against the French, especially after being badly beaten up in the scrum, their usual dominant phase of play.
