6 Nations Predictions!

Front Row Club predictions for the 6 Nations!

Nailed On Performer

IRE – Tadhg Furlong

He’s nailed every northern and southern hemisphere team, won a Grand Slam, the European Cup and humbled the All Blacks at home for Ireland and away with the Lions. He’s the guts in the Ireland belly and our pick for the nailed on performer

The Dark Horse

SCO – Stuart McInally

8, 7, 6 now 2. An unusual countdown but when he hit 2 he took off. Standing in the shadows of more celebrated players, he’s a breed of switched on hooker who can change the course of a game.

The Bad Boy

WAL – Tomas Francis

Never one to hide his frustration, Francis is our pick for most penalised. We love a scrap and a scrapper, so don’t take this as criticism from us by any means.

Most likely to score a runaway screamer

WAL – Ryan Elias

Yes, we know you all think it’s Mako, but this guy is the best hooker you’ve barely heard of. You have now. Take it from us.

May not be able to take the pressure?

ENG – Jack Singleton

Singleton has had a superb start with Worcester but is he ready for international rugby we think not… We would love nothing more than to be proved wrong, wouldn’t be the first time!

Elder Statesman of the pack

ENG – Dan Cole

Cole at the age of 31 may be past his peak. His illustrious work in the scrum and breakdown proves less regular in the modern game due to the pace. He struggles to keep up! There’s a welcome spot for him at Front Row Corner in the bar if he misses out on Japan.
