NEW YORK, NY – In Week 36 of our Fantasy Sports Network show, we’re giving you two segments re Six Nations competitions on both sides of the Atlantic in one place. As per the NatWest Six Nations, we had some maneuvering to do. Our comrade Peter Jackson is under the weather. Further, Martin Pengelly was M.I.A., as he fails to find anything beyond dial-up quality internet while on his Roger Moore Walk-About in the English countryside. So, we needed a Six Nations Panel pinch-hitter that packed some wallop. A sultan of swat. Someone larger than life; larger than the formidable Alex Corbisiero, even. And then, out of the rugby heavens, leafing side to side in an angelical descent, the 6’8″ 250 lb sexy beast that is Jim Hamilton fell into our laps (thanks to @TheRugbyPod & @RugbyPass). Big Jim joins the legendary George Hook, Steve “The Lizard” Lewis and host Matt McCarthy for the traditional #6N. On this side of the pond, though, we have the Americas Rugby Championship, which is our iteration of that storied competition. And for that, we have Mr. Lewis and our friend from the the far corners of Canada, Bryan Ray, of Americas Rugby News.
As per the older setup, our esteemed panel gives their thoughts on:
–Six Nations Promotion/Relegation
-The French Rugby Crisis
-Italy’s Critical Moment
–Murrayfield Magic or Flodden Field II?
-Scottish Selection Issues
–Panel Predictions, including those of Peter Jackson and Martin Pengelly.
Concerning the newer version of the Six Nations, The Lizard, Mr. Ray and McCarthy discuss:
–ARC Performances to date.
–MLR/Major League Rugby in Toronto & Vancouver
–Kiwis vs Canadians
–USA Players of Note
–Dylan “The Butcher” Fawsitt’s nickname
–Wagers of $$$ & Donuts over Argentina vs Canada
