Who's going to win the Six Nations rugby tournament?

"England have got a good chance now Jonny Wilkinson is in there

- they've been struggling without him. English sport has been dreadful recently and I think the public has lost a bit of interest. We need something to fire us up again."

John Bambury

Rugby Road Wine Cellars, Hinckley, Leics

"Like 98 per cent of the country I think Wilkinson was amazing on Saturday, which was a pity for Scotland . England have a good chance but I'm not sure if Scotland made them look good or not . We'll have to wait until they come up against better opposition. Scotland let themselves down and I don't think they've going to win the championship by any stretch of the imagination."

Gerry McGregor

Tomintoul's Scotch Corner, Ballindalloch, Banffshire

"I'm hopeful

England will win. You've got to be patriotic and get behind them. I'll be watching the matches down the pub . It's fun when everyone gets involved and it's a great atmosphere."

Natalie Stone

Turbary Wine, Ferndown, Dorset

"England are


and did well against a depleted Scottish team last week, but they're not going to win. If I'm giving an honest

opinion I would say it's going to be between Wales and Ireland. My money's on Ireland, they're very professional and played well last year."

Raymond Weaver

Weaver Wines, Glasgow

"Wales will win of course . We're decorating the shop in flags and getting behind them . It's important to get patriotic. Most of our customers agree

Wales are in with a good chance."

English wine: a happy harvest for Christmas

All across England and Wales, vineyards are being harvested. Down winding country lanes come armies of welly-wearing conscripts wielding secateurs and buckets, ready to reap the rewards of our vines. Happily they come, their cheeks ruddy with pride. Half an hour later they’re crawling over muddy clods with lacerated hands, drenched in claggy juice and cold sweat, as if ploughing through an endurance race.
