The World Series Cup England v New Zealand from Perth England, throughout this three-nation competition, have often worried their supporters by losing matches they could and should have won.

Wales v England from Cardiff Arms Park Wales, perhaps not the force they have been in recent seasons, start this year's championship with the knowledge that England have already lost to France and have failed to win a match in Cardiff for 20 years. Commentators BILL MCLAREN GARETH EDWARDS and BILL BEAUMONT (Organised by the Welsh Rugby Union in association with British Telecom) and at 3.55 France v Scotland from Parc des Princes, Paris France, having beaten the pre-season favourites at Twickenham with such style, must worry the Scots with the magic they could weave in front of the clamorous home support.
