The 2021 Six Nations has been given the green light and we’re less than a week away!
England and Scotland square off for the 150th time this weekend and joining Brian this week to look ahead to the fixture is former Scotland scrum-half Rory Lawson.
The pair discuss England’s status as favourites heading into the competition and what, if anything, Scotland can do to upset the odds.
Finn Russell says he is a changed man after making amends with the Scotland coaching staff. The Racing 92 star will be key to Scotland’s chances and Rory tells Brian exactly what has changed for the mercurial fly-half since his spat with Gregor Townsend.
Elsewhere, Wales will be hoping to put a dismal 2020 behind them. They host Ireland first and Brian gets the take from former Wales No 8 Scott Quinnell who’s backing Pivac to turn things round for the Welsh.
England Women face uncertainty over their Six Nations campaign just months out from the World Cup in New Zealand. Their side of the competition has been postponed but is expected to go ahead later in the spring. Head coach Simon Middleton joins the show to discuss the disruption, and the idea that it should be permanently played in a separate window to the men’s tournament.
And finally, just what should be done with the British & Irish Lions? After conflicting reports the tour could be held in the UK and Australia, Brian discusses what the best course of action should be.
