6 Nations Rugby Kicks Off This Month!

Matt Crisp February 1, 2017

Listen up, sports fans! You’d better sort out coach hire to London quick smart and in a hurry if you want to catch the first match-up of this year’s 6 Nations rugby championship, as it’s all about to kick off with Scotland and Ireland going up against each other on February 4th at the Murrayfield Stadium (in Edinburgh) and England v France at Twickenham Stadium. The third game will see Italy and Wales face off against each other at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on the 5th.

It’s all to play for this year where England are concerned, that’s for sure. In 2016, the team went unbeaten throughout the entire season and are returning as defending Grand Slam champions in 2017, so it’s theirs to lose at the moment, it would seem… although, of course, no one really knows what this season’s tournament will hold. We’re sure there are going to be a few upsets along the way!

“If you keep evolving what you do, then teams are going to go at what you used to do, not what you are doing now. I don’t see it as this is the England game, this is how we are going to play – that is evolving all the time … Everyone here is very hungry to have success again. We’ve got to come out of the blocks and play well against France. If we get that wrong, it’s out of the window already so we have to take it game by game,” head coach Eddie Jones said.

Wales, meanwhile, has got a new captain and a new coach which might suggest to some that they could struggle to find their feet at the start of the tournament. But the squad itself is packed with talented players, with the likes of Jamie Roberts and Jonathan Davies, as well as Scott Williams looking to make waves during this year’s match-ups.

As for Scotland, captain Greig Laidlaw voiced his belief that this is in fact the best team that the country has ever put together – so there might be a few surprises in store for us all if this proves to ring true. After all, Scottish clubs Edinburgh Rugby and Glasgow Warriors both did really well in Europe recently, so it’s looking highly likely that Scotland will be a force to be reckoned with in the RBS 6 Nations 2017.

It’s going to be a good year for women’s rugby as well, that’s for sure and certain. This year’s Women’s Six Nations will see every match broadcast live on TV for the first time ever – sure to stir up even more interest in both the championship in general and the sport itself.

To make sure that you’re part of the action, book your tickets as far in advance as you can to avoid any disappointment. And make sure you arrange your coach travel well ahead of time as well!
