The game I started, resented, and forgot about last year, returns for an exciting new edition!

In an intriguing twist, I'm changing the rules about bonus points slightly from last year when it was something different that people didn't like!

4 points for the winner (bonus points for the spread and for the exact score)
3 bonus points for a Grand Slam
3 bonus points for the Champions
3 bonus points for the Triple Crown
3 bonus points for the Calcutta Cup
3 bonus points for the Wooden Spoon

Ireland for Triple Crown, Shirley?

The brief chat I heard on 5Live last night didn't seem too positive about England's chances. Looking at their squad, I'd agree.

You've got until kick-off tonight to see the error of your ways.

It's win-win - if England win the whole thing I at least get some pleasure from it (however minute), if they don't I get pleasure from them... not winning!
 
Good stuff @AndyRM

I'll go with:
Wales 28 England 12
Italy 12 Ireland 30
France 12 Scotland 23

Grand Slam - no winner
Champions - Ireland
Triple Crown - Ireland
Calcutta Cup - Scotland
Wooden Spoon - England

Hopefully that's not too political ;)

That's 6 participants, equalling the number from last year!

I'm sure everyone will agree that's a remarkable success, given the shambolic nature of last years proceedings. Plus there's still time for more players to get involved. Incredible scenes.
