International rugby is about to get underway again after the long Christmas and New Year break. It's been very cold up in Europe during this time. Traditionally February and March can be even colder so I do hope the weather is, from now, kinder.
This weekend sees the start of the 6 Nations International Championship and the resumption of the European Nations Cup, Division 1. This division also acts as World Cup qualifiers.
