    Here are the weights of the packs in Kg of the participating Six Nations Countries.
    I was surprised by a few of them.

    Wales 920
    England 917
    Ireland 884
    Scotland 870
    Italy 868
    France 868

    The WELSH have the largest pack in the tournament apparently, I didn't see that one coming. no disrespect to them but I honestly thought they'd be near the bottom end of the table along with Ireland who I'm surprised to see comes in third. England who I thought would have topped the group has lived up to their name as being big fat feckers. I used the French pack that bullied the Springboks to get their number and I guess they prove size can mean didly squat in this sport if you have the right technique. Looking at the teams before I did the list I would have thought it was something like this

    England
    Scotland
    Italy
    France
    Ireland
    Wales

    Wonder how much of the English is taken up by Tim Payne? :p

    And Wales pack would shoot through the roof if they played Eifion Roberts

    I'd say the reason the Irish pack is so heavy is because thair backrow is pretty big... but still didnt expect to see them there...
