It’s that time of year again where everyone is starting to wave goodbye to the January blues and shift their focus on what the upcoming year has to offer, and with the RBS Six Nations starting in just over two weeks, it is safe to say that the sporting calendar is well under way.
With England going unbeaten in 2016 and Ireland historically beating New Zealand for the first time in their history after a 111 year wait, old rivalries will come alive as the teams and fans gather for the historic Six Nations rugby tournament.
