Behind the scenes at the Six Nations launch

The Six Nations kicks off in only a few hours from now, with the hype spreading from Dublin to Paris as all the talk is of who will be the team to lift the famous Championship this year.

There was a media scrum to behold as the coaches and captains were presented at the official launch at the Hurlingham Club in London this week.

This video gives you a nice look at what goes on at media junkets such as this, with the players being passed around from journalist to journalist, being asked the same questions over and over again.

It’s all part of being a professional player though, and they take it in their stride as the media is an integral part of rugby as we know it today. It's usually pretty casual too, with plenty of laughs and banter going around.

Enjoy the vid, and thanks to the beeb.

  • Something about the morning of the Six Nations, brings back so many memories. Not just of my own country but just some great games, great players, great days out and just great times overall. Magical.

  • I think Wales is gonna take it home again..

    It seems to me the more solid team in the championship.

    Just an opinion..

  • Cool vid, nice to see behind the scenes at events like that.

    I wouldnt know who to pick to win this year, its wide open and as always so unpredictable. 5 games each in 7 weeks, pure magic.
