    Following England's disgraceful behaviour off the pitch and poor performances on it at the last Rugby world cup
    in New Zealand last year Martin Johnson has left his position as head coach and Stuart Lancaster has taken over.

    Lets see if they can at least hold on to their Six nations title and bring some much needed pride back to the country.

    Any comments?

    Not long to go now until the 6 Nations gets underway with Scotland playing England.

    England will have 3 new players making their debuts in Brad Barritt and Owen Farrell both of Saracens and Northampton's Phil Dowson.

    Chris Robshaw is the new captain but I'm looking forward mostly to seeing what Owen Farrell can do as a lot of hype has been written about him.

    4 Feb, 14:30 France 30 - 12 Italy Stade de France, Paris Saint-Denis, FRA
    4 Feb, 17:00 Scotland 6 - 13 England Murrayfield, Edinburgh, SCO

    England won in Scotland for the first time since 2004!

    Again it wasn't the best of performances and only 1 try was scored
    when veteran Charlie Hodgson charged down an attempted clearance at the start of the second half.

    If Dan Parks hadn't missed a couple of kicks and Scotland has done better when near England's line they would have easily won.

    France avenged last years surprise defeat by Italy to win 30-12 and give new manager Philippe Saint-Andre's a first victory.

    Hi stranger

    The match between England and Wales at Twickenham this month on 25th February should be a cracker.
