Six Nations Rugby: The Newcomers You Need To Know About

2 Feb , 2017  

We’ve already taken a look at some of the established rugby names we’re expecting to make a big impact during this year’s Six Nations, but here are a few ‘under the radar’ talents we’re sure you’ll all be talking about by the end of the tournament! 


This year’s Six Nations squad announcements were in the main full of the usual suspects, and we’ve already put some of the established stars we expect to shine under the microscope. However, each of the coaches have also thrown a few ‘wildcard’ selections into the mix, some players yet to even make their debuts, and some who we predict will be huge names in the future.

Unless you’re a real rugby union fanatic, you might not have heard of all these emerging prospects yet, but we predict you’ll be hearing an awful lot more about them over the next two months! Check out the slideshow below, and remember where you heard about these guys first!

So there we have it, our predictions at the newcomers to watch out for during the Six Nations. With this likely to be one of the closest tournaments in recent years, these emerging players could play a huge part over the next two months. Who knows, they could be the difference between one of the sides clinching a Triple Crown or even a Grand Slam like last year’s England team! We’re definitely looking forward to watching them in action!

We’d love to hear your thoughts about who you think we should look out for and your predictions for the tournament ahead. Why not take a look at our pre-tournament preview where we’ve put our money where our mouth is and revealed who we think will claim the championship!
