    is youth and there is experience Other than a woeful display against England in the last round of last year s championship and a narrow loss to South Africa in November the green machine seems to be gathering some momentum Ireland is certainly the roughie in this year s competition If they can sneak past Wales in round one they have home fixtures against England and France Could this be Ireland s year I don t think so They will fall short but then again Ronan O Gara is the master of the drop goal Coach Declan Kidney Captain Jamie Heaslip No 8 Superstars Brian O Driscoll Outside Centre Bolter Craig Gilroy Wing Fullback Prediction If you are game Champions 4 50 Sportsbet but I would sit it out Wales The reigning 6 Nations champions had an extremely poor autumn series having lost to Argentina Samoa New Zealand and Australia Seven consecutive losses after a great Rugby World Cup campaign that could ve finished very differently if Sam Warburton wasn t red carded in the first few minutes A convincing 6 Nations last year left Welsh rugby on a serious high However some mediocre rugby that can t be blamed on weather a host of injuries and some underperforming provincial unions really leave the Welsh with their backs against the walls Now is there time to stand up They have some experienced campaigners and a monstrous backline that is blessed with pace so if the forward lay the platform and Leigh Halfpenny kicks his goals they shouldn t be too far off the pace but you would expect that they should fall short to the in form teams England and France Coach Rob Howley Warren Gatland is on Lions duty Captain Sam Warburton Flanker Superstar Toby Faletau Number 8 Rising Star Justin Tipuric Flanker Prediction Wales have the team to spring a few upsets but 2013 won t be their year Scotland 2012 was a year of one up and many downs for Scotland rugby given they lost all 6 Nations fixtures and experienced disappointing losses to South Africa New Zealand and Tonga The upside was that they managed to upset an understrength Australia in Newcastle during a midweek game in conditions that resembled something very similar to the dreary and wet Murrayfield Scott Johnson the interim head coach has added ten uncapped players to help reinvigorate Scottish rugby and picked 19 Glasgow warriors players to ensure that as many combinations that play week in and week out provincially can tackle some of the world s best on the international stage The best partnerships are usually developed at provincial level The likes of Ma a Nonu and Conrad Smith Hurricanes Justin Marshall and Andrew Mehrtens Crusaders Jean de Villiers and Jacque Fourie Stormers The transition to the international stage is made that much easier for players given there are already established foundations based on trust and effective communication and senior players that can show the way Scotland has never been

    Stadium Game preview Records show that the Suns won this game last season in their first shock win but the Tigers must play with the desperation needed to keep pace with the other teams in the race for the finals A fall here against a winless team would mark the end of the season for Richmond The Suns just need to keep playing for pride and avoid thrashings Tigers look ok and the ground is neutral Tigers by 48 Line Tigers 37 5 Geelong Cats 2 55 vs Collingwood Magpies 1 52 MCG Saturday July 14 7 40pm Recent clashes Collingwood 14 12 96 d Geelong 11 18 84 round 8 2012 at the MCG Game preview The last time Carlton beat Collingwood the Magpies then won the next 10 games and if it takes a loss to the Blues to get Collingwood motivated then that can be taken as a positive If the Pies win the next 10 they will win the premiership The Cats have been stumbling a bit this season but like a lot of other teams they seem to find something extra when playing Collingwood Will it be enough Magpies by 16 Line Magpies 11 5 Brisbane Lions 2 60 vs St Kilda Saints 1 50 The Gabba Saturday July 14 7 40pm Recent clashes St Kilda 13 11 89 d Brisbane Lions 11 10 76 round 5 2011 at the Gabba Game preview There could be an upset here with Lions home win record 3 4 and Saints currently are 1 3 for its interstate matches this season The Saints will need to play like they did last week against Essendon and that will ensure a comfortable win against the Lions even at the Gabba The difficulty the Saints have been experiencing is to be able to put two games like that together in consecutive weeks and as badly as Brisbane played last week they are one of those teams whose inconsistency drives tipsters crazy They can win this one at home but maybe the Saints can play well enough to stop them Saints by 26 Line Saints 13 5 Greater Western Sydney Giants 14 00 vs Adelaide Crows 1 02 Skoda Stadium Sunday July 15 1 10pm Recent clashes Adelaide 13 18 96 d Greater Western Sydney 7 8 50 round four 2012 at AAMI Stadium Game preview Some positives happening in the Giants camp as they announce their B F winner will receive the Sheedy Medal At the time of writing this Sheedy s coaching future there was not announced but the Giants may give him a senior mentoring role if they appoint a younger coach for next season There s no doubt Kev has done the job asked of him On a less positive note for the Giants is that they are in for another hiding Crows by 55 Line Giants 70 5 Western Bulldogs 10 50 vs Hawthorn Hawks 1 05 Etihad Stadium Sunday July 15 3 15pm Recent clashes Hawthorn

    progressed and they are playing well enough to present Sydney with a danger game The Swans are looking at a top 4 finish but need to win against lower teams like this Brisbane will want to keep alive their slim chance of making the finals so it will be a tough close encounter Swans by 38 Line Swans 33 5 Essendon Bombers 1 38 vs St Kilda 3 05 Etihad Stadium Saturday July 7 7 40pm Recent clashes Essendon 21 10 136 defeated St Kilda 12 12 84 round 3 2011 at Etihad Stadium Game preview Injuries to Saints players just keep happening and they can ill afford to be down in manpower against a very good looking Essendon team who also wants a top 4 finish The game is no gimme for the Bombers and they will have to maintain pressure on the Saints to post a win St Kilda is still in the mix to play finals It s hard to tip against Essendon when they are playing teams below them Bombers by 26 Line Bombers 19 5 Port Adelaide Power 4 00 vs Adelaide Crows 1 25 AAMI Stadium Saturday July 7 7 10pm Recent clashes Adelaide 16 14 110 defeated Port Adelaide 14 7 91 round 5 2012 at AAMI Stadium Game preview The SA derby it s always a tough encounter The Power is playing well enough to trouble other teams but not quite well enough to win many games They certainly have their work cut out for them here playing the Crows who also seek a top 4 finish The loss of Walker through suspension will hurt Adelaide when they play the better teams but for this game he will be hardly missed Why hasn t Minson apologized to Pearce by the way Crows by 34 Line Crows 26 5 Hawthorn Hawks 1 01 vs Greater Western Sydney Giants 17 00 MCG Sunday July 8 1 10pm Recent clashes First Meeting Game preview The one saving grace for the Giants in this match is that Buddy will be out due to injury However that doesn t mean a Giants win it means a smaller winning margin for Hawthorn Not a lot you can say about which team to tip and why because the game is a definite win for the Hawks The margin Extreme Hawks by 66 Line Giants 92 5 Gold Coast Suns 17 00 vs Geelong Cats 1 01 Metricon Stadium Sunday July 8 3 15pm Recent clashes Geelong 29 14 188 d Gold Coast 6 2 38 round 20 2011 at Skilled Stadium Game preview Another win for the Cats and another loss for the Suns who have recently been Blighted You have to wonder about the confidence the management has in their coach when they appoint Malcolm Blight to oversee the coaching strategies But Bluey McKenna has been re appointed so you can assume his position is safe Geelong coach Scott had a dream season last year but faces the
