France v Italy in Rome (6 Nations)
Ireland v Wales in Cardiff (6 Nations)
Romania v Georgia in Tblissi (ENC 1A)
Portugal v Spain in Madrid (ENC 1A)
Russia v Ukraine in Odessa (ENC 1A)
Belgium v Poland in Gdansk (ENC 1B)
Czech Republic v Germany in Heidelberg (ENC 1B)
Bulgaria v Cyprus in Paphos (ENC 2D)

Scotland v England at Twickenham (6 Nations)

In 6 Nations rugby, England may find Scotland a tough nut to crack as they strive towards a Championship title and also a Grand Slam. France should brush aside Italy in Rome whilst Ireland and Wales fight it out in Cardiff more for pride than anything.

Romania’s clash with Georgia in Tblissi will be the highlight of the European Nations Cup. Georgia is well in the lead on the points table but Romania has a game in hand. Their clash with the Ukraine was postponed because of a frozen pitch. Romania has a huge task ahead of it playing in rugby-mad Georgia. Both are off to the 2011 Rugby World Cup finals and both will be out to prove themselves worthy finalists. Portugal and Spain play an Iberian derby with Portugal favoured to win whilst Russia faces the Ukraine in Odessa.

In other ENC matches, Belgium and Poland meet in Poland with Belgium, the Division 1B table leaders favoured to win. The Czech Republic could find Germany and handful away whilst Bulgaria travels to Cyprus for their ENC 2D clash. Both teams are undefeated so the result here will be crucial.
