Winner-takes-all in the Rugby 6 Nations.: Next Sunday, Ireland and England will play in Dublin to decide the 6 Nations Championship. Both countries have 4 wins and 0 losses, so the winner will get a Grand Slam (a perfect record.) Ireland haven't won a Grand Slam since 1948, while England have managed to throw away a Grand Slam for the last three years. Ireland kept the dream alive with a thrilling 25-24 win over Wales in Cardiff. Meanwhile England scored a routine 40-9 win over Scotland at Twickenham. If this game was at Twickenham, England would be clear favourites. In Dublin, I'm not so sure. Who do you think will win? I'm going to go for a narrow English victory.

/slaps jason mercilessly. Come on England! They're regarded by many as the best side, but going to Landsdowne road and winning is a challenge for any team.
