Gavin Henson out? That's the last time I'm trusting Ruckin' Sky Sports News for the team listing. Another team change for the Whirling Dervishes

Cheers

Nothing like nailing your colours to the mast Standard.
Walked, yes walked up Dee, well Grace Neills, after the game and it was full of big blokes wearing about 14 layers each shouting 'Oh, O'Gara is past his sell by date, I would have run it.'
Yeah, twenty years ago fat boy.

A chorus of wives/girlfriends 'Is it over? Can we go home now.'

You want to be in my shoes. Swmmeb was flicking through the TV guide this morning and says 'Rugby!? There's flipping rugby on all afternoon. What is it this time?'
'Six nations, starts today' says I.
'Six nations? What again? I thought they played that not long ago!'
'Oh FFS!'

As fer nailing me colours to the mast, I can't, she won't let me. Says she'll move out if I so much as attach a flegpole to the front of Noisy Towers.

Although that scenario has an upside.

And I can't get in to the site now. Not too much of a problem cos I can't make any changes, but I can't remember who's on my team to tot my points up!

I do know I picked Goode, and used him as my kicker. And I also had Mr Ellis, so reckon I did ok from the England match!

As I remember in previous years, the site was locked until a few hours after the third game whereupon the scores were calculated and the site magically became live again.

The website was down for a while but its working okay now.
Jet Blast league is here:
Scrum Fantasy Rugby, in partnership with Land Rover

Not one of us in the top 200!
I'm 7513th with 75 points. Crikey! I thought I'd done alright.
Beamish boy, you're heading our league with 83 points

Now, I'm off to sack some English players and to invest heavily in Welsh & Irish.

Congrats BB; so the hours spent in the pub with the old crowd mulling over your team selection were not in vain!

Just in case some of you haven't received this email, these are the team changes for this weekend. You have up until 1500 GMT to make any changes; hope this isn't too late for our chaps down under

The weekend's action gets underway with France against Scotland from the Stade de France in Paris.

France will be without Florian Fritz for the next three weeks after he was cited and suspended for punching an opponent in the defeat to Ireland. Benoit Baby comes into the line-up as one of four changes to the French side. Iconic lock Sebastian Chabal has been dropped while Cedric Heymans comes in on the wing.

Scotland have picked brothers Tohm and Max Evans to face France, but record points scorer Chris Paterson remains on the bench. Tohm comes in on the wing with Max taking over from Ben Cairns at centre. There are two changes in the pack where Alasdair Strokosch and Alasdair Dickinson are selected, while wing Simon Danielli replaces Sean Lamont.

France: Poitrenaud, Medard, Baby, Jauzion, Heymans, Beauxis, Tillous-Borde, Barcella, Szarzewski, Mas, Nallet, Millo-Chluski, Dusautoir, Ouedraogo, Harinordoquy.
Replacements: Boyoud, Kayser, Chabal, Picamoles, Parra, Mermoz, Malzieu.

Scotland: Southwell, Danielli, M Evans, Morrison, T Evans, Godman, Blair, Jacobsen, Ford, Dickinson, White, Hamilton, Strokosch, Taylor, Barclay.
Replacements: Hall, Low, Brown, Gray, Cusiter, Paterson, De Luca.

Kicking off at 17:30 GMT on the same day is Wales versus England from the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

Shane Williams and Andy Powell have been named in the Wales team to face England, but must pass fitness tests if they are going to start. Captain Ryan Jones is in the team after missing the opener against Scotland while Gavin Henson has not recovered from his calf injury.

England have made only two changes to the side that struggled to impose themselves against Italy last weekend with Joe Worsley and Mike Tindall coming into the side. Jamie Noon and Steffon Armitage have been dropped from the squad completely, while Toby Flood returns and is fit enough for a place on the bench.

Wales: Byrne, Halfpenny, Shanklin, Roberts, Williams, S Jones, Phillips, Jenkins, Rees, A Jones, Gough, AW Jones, R Jones, Williams, Powell.
Replacements: Bennett, Yapp, Charteris, D Jones, Peel, Hook, Bishop.

England: D Armitage, Sackey, Tindall, Flutey, Cueto, Goode, Ellis, Sheridan, Mears, Vickery, Borthwick, Kennedy, Haskell, Worsley, Easter.
Replacements: Hartley, White, Croft, Narraway, Hodgson, Flood, Tait.

On Sunday, Ireland travel to the Stadio Flaminio in Rome to take on Italy.
Mauro Bergamasco returns to flanker for Italy this weekend following his disastrous showing at scrum-half against England. After experimenting with Bergamasco at nine last week Italy coach Nick Mallet has selected Paul Griffen as part of an overhaul in the half-back positions alongside Luke McLean.

Ireland have named an unchanged team for their clash with Italy following their impressive win over France. Paddy Wallace continues at centre despite Gordon D'Arcy coming off the bench to score a try last week. Ronan O'Gara, Marcus Horan and Jamie Heaslip missed training on Wednesday but will be fit to start.

Italy: Masi, Robertson, Canale, Mi Bergamasco, Pratichetti, McLean, Griffen, Castrogiovanni, Ongaro, Perugini, Dellape, Reato, Zanni, Ma Bergamasco, Perisse.
Replacements: Festuccia, Nieto, del Fava, Sole, Toniolatti, Garcia, Bacchetti.

Ireland: Kearney, Bowe, B O'Driscoll, P Wallace, Fitzgerald, O'Gara, O'Leary, Horan, Flannery, Hayes, O'Callaghan, O'Connell, Ferris, D Wallace, Heaslip.
Replacements: Best, Court, O'Kelly, Leamy, Stringer, D'Arcy, Murphy.

Cheers

Shane Williams failed a fitness test on his damaged ankle on Friday and is replaced in the Welsh side by Mark Jones. As a result there is only one change to 'Adnams Best'.

Green for the six nations IMHO, plenty of talent + Declan Kidney... coach par excellence to bring out the best in them.

Empowerment... the route to success.

Union types take note....

Thanks for this chaps. As a side question, can anyone help me with streaming these games on the internet? I am in Mexico and have zero chance of them being televised.

Any help appreciated as i have had a look and drawna blank.

Cheers, bar fly
