The Six Nations rugby tournament kicks of tonight in Cardiff, when Wales take on neighbours England in an evening kick off at the Millennium Stadium. Scotland are away for their first game and many kilted fans have made the trip to Paris for the clash with France. Scotland were strong during the autumn internationals but will need to build on this if they are to secure their first win in the French capital since 1999. Ireland may have an easier first game against Italy on Saturday afternoon.
The following weekend is the highlight of the tournament for me when Wales make the journey up to Murrayfield. After a very close game last year, I’m sure Scotland will be looking to make amends against the Welsh this time around. Whether it be a cause of celebration or drowned sorrows show your support with a Scottish or Welsh hip flask There will be many people I’m sure wearing the Heritage of Wales tartan for the visit to Edinburgh.
With Scotland at home to Ireland on Feb 27th, can Scotland’s performance of last year be repeated at Murrayfield to clinch a win?
It’s then an away trip on March 13th to Twickenham to take on England. Scotland only managed to get a draw last year so will be hoping to have built enough momentum during this tournament to gain victory away from home. If your lucky enough to be travelling for this match be sure to visit buyakilt.com for your essentials.
Scotland will hope to finish the tournament in a strong position and will hope to finish in style, on the final day of competition (March 19th).
