I'd like to see what Scotland are capable of this year under the new coach though. And don't forget about France's notorious inconsistency.

Supposedly he doesn't quite have the same passing range or creativity as the Leinster stand-off, Felipe Contepomi of Argentina. He's still good for possession and territory stakes though I don't think thats going to matter much against the French (despite them being shot down by the Scots).
