The Six Nations Championship is here for another go-round, with Wales looking to retain the title.
The Welsh came within a win of completing a Grand Slam last year, but they fell to France on the final day of competition. Regardless, they head into this year's tournament as champions, and the Welsh will have another chance to run the table when the action kicks off on Feb. 5.
Meanwhile, the French will look to build on that final victory over the champions, as they finished second in last year's competition. Then, France opens the tournament against Italy in a mismatch that could provide Les Bleus with a boost out of the gates.
Elsewhere, look for England, Scotland, and Ireland to throw their respective hats in the ring for the title, while the Italians are looking to avoid claiming the Wooden Spoon for the seventh straight year.
