Six Nations Reminder: England live on BBC TV tomorrow!

A reminder that England's Women's Six Nations game against Scotland at Twickenham will be shown live on BBC TV (kick-off 5.15pm), though only via the Red Button and not (apparently) on Freeview. It is possible that the game may also be available online.

Its a pity that it is this particular game, being as the only question worth debating against the favourites for the Wooden Spoon will be the size of England's win, which should be in excess of 50 points (indeed if it isn't a few questions may need to be asked). The English back line, panicked into making all sorts of silly mistakes against France (as they were against New Zealand) should have rather more time to relax and throw the ball around, so it should be good to watch if not maybe wildly competitive.

All of the games in this round take place tomorrow - a bit of a change as they have been pretty spread out up until now and the two earlier games - between Italy and France at Benevento, and Wales and Ireland at Cross Keys - should be over by the time England kick off, which means that in theory England could lift the title by winning at Twickenham. Admittedly this would require wins by both Italy and Wales, which is a shade unlikely - though France are giving a run out for most of their fringe players, which is a bit risky against the team that shocked Wales two weeks ago.

That games was a bit of a set-back for Wales who had been looking happier than they have been for some years up until then. They will be wanting to put things right again, but frankly a Welsh win is no more likely than an Italian as Ireland are at full strength and looking a very good side.

In fact the Women's Six Nations is rapidly evolving into two divisions, with only France and Ireland seriously capable of troubling England and all three sides now significantly ahead of the rest.
