"Only five England-based players could be selected"

Hold on, so France are the beneficiaries by their own Covid infringements?
Scotland (and effectively Wales) are penalised.

I have a feeling that if England were in line to win the 6N the rules might be different

Looking forward to this one from Wales. I have a bet Wales to win the 6N from start at decent odds, question is do i cash out or not?

How confident are Scotland of winning or more important not to lose by 21.
Cash out, you’d be mad to put faith in the Scotch. Removed

You are missing the point.

I welcomed professionalism to RU but there have been downsides. One of them is that international Rugby has become so critical for revenue streams, in the northern hemisphere this has meant keeping the largest market happy. Even the WRU diverts Wales v Eng tickets to the rich English market.

Money talks, it always does, but there needs to be better checks & balances

After the France Covid fiasco and the laughable La Porte report , I'm with BOD... France should've forfeited the game.
Then, we had the even more absurd. Galthie claiming the Welsh had somehow tricked Willemse into sticking his fingers in Jones' eye. Eh?

So yeah....COME ON SCOTLAND! Whatever you do don't lose by 20 points!
It certainly smacks of unsportsmanlike conduct and being a dick. I'd let them play the game, just because - and then deduct them cinq pointe !! Removed

As someone with my head up my own Arsenal!! I do so admire the way Scottish Rugby has chosen a Scottish Manager and stuck by him. England should choose an English coaching team - as say I - an English Arsenal-hole. And offload the cabal of southern hemisphere coaching mercenaries, within the English set up. So there you raggedy bunch!
Good luck Scotland and Gregor - chip, chip, and cheerio Say I.

a) The game should be going ahead, with both teams free to pick the squads they want, for the sake of the integrity of the tournament.
b) Scotland should not be disadvantaged: they maintained their team bubble throughout the tournament and didn't have any COVID cases. The French coach broke the rules and 11 French players ended up testing positive.
c) The English Premiership should not interfere.

France is the most prolific nation in modern rugby :

France, 25 championships, 9 slams, 3 w-c finals (including 1 robbed, cf. Clive Woodward) (I would add 1 other w-c final robbed for Mandela)

Agree the difference between Italy and england is that the Italians have potential. The english will be languishing at the foot of the table for the foreseeable future such is the dearth of english rugby talent.
