Italy v Scotland at Murrayfield (6 Nations)
England v Ireland in Dublin (6 Nations)
Wales v France in Paris (6 Nations)
Georgia v Russia in Sotchi (ENC 1A)
Spain v Romania in Bucharest (ENC 1A)
Ukraine v Portugal in Lisbon (ENC 1A)
Germany v Belgium in Brussels/Vise (ENC 1B)
Czech Republic v Moldova in Chisinau (ENC 1B)
Andorra v Switzerland in Nyon (ENC 2B)

Can Italy make history by winning two 6 Nations Championship matches in a row? Or will Scotland dampen their day at Murrayfield? Wales and France will battle it out in Paris for mostly pride because I don’t either team is eligible to win anything now. That leads us to THE match in the 6 Nations. Can Ireland defeat England at their new stadium in Dublin? If they do it won’t take the Championship away from England but it will stop the grabbing The Grand Slam.

Georgia has already won the 2011 chapter of the European Nations Cup. They will be looking to wrap up the competition with their own ‘Grand Slam’ by winning all their games. And this will be on Russian soil (just), the first time the game between Russia and Georgia has not been played on foreign soil since 2008. For the other four teams its just about pride.

Elsewhere, ENC 1B is turning into another even contest with Belgium and Germany being defeated last weekend. These two teams meet and on form anything could happen. The same applies to Moldova v Czech Republic. Picking a winner in the 1B competition is becoming hard work.

Finally, Andorra travel to Nyon to take on the Swiss in another topsy-turvy competition.
