Play the ESPN Scrum International Fantasy Rugby 2011 game

The 2011 Six Nations gets underway on Friday 4th February and the annual festival of Northern Hemisphere rugby promises to be closer than ever before.

Pundits, coaches and players agree that there’s not much between the teams this year and few are willing to predict a winner.

However, fantasy rugby managers don’t need to worry about who will be lifting the trophy in March, their only concern is who will make their ESPNscrum International Fantasy Rugby 2011 XVs.

We’ve teamed up with our good friends at ESPNscrum once again to give you a free-to-play fantasy rugby game for the Six Nations and they’re offering a HD TV and Aviva Premiership Final tickets to the winner.

The game gets underway at 19:45 GMT on Friday 4th February at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff when Wales host Martin Johnson’s revitalised England.

You can pick up to four players from each nation, but only one of your team can score points for kicks at goal – will you go for last year’s top kicker, Wales’ Stephen Jones?

France completed the Grand Slam on their way to being crowned champions in 2010, but England are the slight favourites this time around.

Talented twosome Ben Youngs and Chris Ashton impressed during the autumn internationals and could be the backs to inspire England to glory.

Scotland recorded an extraordinary win over World Champions South Africa in November, having also got the better of Ireland last year.

Indeed, the Irish have a long list of injuries to worry about ahead of their opener against darkhorses Italy, including doubts over British Lions duo Tommy Bowe and Jamie Heaslip.
