Time to put your national allegiances aside. A tough ask, we appreciate, but we want to know which of the RBS 6 Nations sides you genuinely believe will lift the coveted trophy on 19 March.

For example, England are the bookies’ favourites for the Six Nations title almost every single year. But do you think the new dawn, with Eddie Jones in charge spells a return to the good old days?

Maybe you think that Ireland can triumph again, as Rory Best steps into Paul O’Connell‘s sizeable shoes and leads his charges to a third Six Nations title in a row. Perhaps you feel that Wales will do what they did after the 2007 and 2011 Rugby World Cups and win a Grand Slam in the next Six Nations.

Maybe you think France, now under Guy Noves, can finally realise their potential and clamber back to the top of the pile. Maybe Scotland‘s exciting World Cup will propel them to genuine contenders, in your eyes. Maybe, just maybe, you have a gut feeling, against probability, that Italy will win it for the first time.
