    The 2021 Six Nations has been given the green light to go ahead 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 the 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 last time out. The Racing 92 star will be key to Scotland’s chances and Rory tells us just 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 we get the take of former Wales number 8 Scott Quinnell who’s backing Pivac to turn things round for the Welsh.

    England’s 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. Their 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 Mens tournament.

    And just what should be done with the British and Irish Lions? After conflicting reports the tour could be held in the UK and Australia we discuss what the best course of action should be.

    In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
