Posted February 18, 2018 16:59:54When you think of the Six Champions’ Cup, what do you picture most of the tournament?
The title is the one you’ll be asking the next few weeks.
The event has been a big part of Ireland’s Six Nations campaign so far, with the country playing a series of fixtures in the coming weeks.
So far the game has been hugely popular and there is no reason why it won’t be again this time around.
Ireland will take on England in Dublin on February 28 and the Six-Test tournament kicks off on March 6.
It will be a first encounter for the Irish as the Six nations head to South Africa, where they face France, the Netherlands, Belgium and Ireland in the opening round of the competition.
It’s a match which many believe could end in a big win for the hosts, with Ireland having a 5-0 advantage in points.
Ireland, however, will face their biggest test yet as they travel to England for the opening match of the new Six Nations, which starts on March 1.
Ireland’s hopes are also boosted by the fact they are now in the same position they were in prior to the World Cup, having played two Six Nations games against the top teams in Europe.
This means they can expect to be the better side in a game that could decide the Six Championship title.
If Ireland’s hopes of an easy victory go down to the wire, however the Six will be looking to move up the table and finish on top of the table, with Wales, France and England looking set to be favourites to win the tournament.
England are currently second, behind Wales, behind Scotland and ahead of Wales and France, who are all currently at or near the top of their Six Nations table.
However, the Welsh are one game off the top spot with a win over Wales on Sunday, with England looking to take advantage of that position and move into the top three.
Ireland have also been playing against some of the top sides in Europe, with a loss to Wales the only setback they have faced this season.
The Six Nations will be the third major international tournament for Ireland this season and they have a big task ahead of them to keep up with the big teams.
