Six Nations Rugby: 12 Players Guaranteed To Shine

1 Feb , 2017  

With the opening weekend of European rugby’s premier event the Six Nations just a few days away, rivalries out on the pitch as well as in the Net World Sports offices are set to be reignited! All the squads have been named, pundits have predicted their starting XVs, and this tournament is set to be one of the closest to date.

After the excitement of the 2016 championship, this year’s rugby Six Nations is set to be an absolute cracker, especially with the introduction of the new bonus point system. The pressure is on now more than ever for each team to play exciting, running rugby, and hopefully bring about an end of the aerial ‘kick-chase’ game which has dominated rugby for the last few seasons.

We’ve had a look at the squads and chosen some of the superstar players we’re sure will perform over the next two months of hard-hitting action! Scroll through the slideshow below and see if you agree!

These are just a few of the standout names we’re predicting to take the tournament by storm, but we all know how unpredictable international rugby can be… Some of these players may not even make the final XV, especially not Dylan Hartley who we reckon is sure to pick up a suspension during the tournament!


Who are you looking forward to watch during this year’s Six Nations? Have we got our star selections spot on, or are there any glaring omissions that you can’t wait to see in action? And check out our pre-tournament preview where we predict this year’s winner.
