Not long to go before the first match in this year’s Six Nations Rugby tournament – the sporting event that comes along in the depths of winter – we love it in our house.

Scotland v Ireland (2017) – A win for Scotland

It’s great subject to draw, so fast and energetic, with good colour – it has it all

This weekend’s opening matches see France against Wales, Scotland face Italy and Ireland versus England, all classics. With the Rugby World Cup coming up later this year, these matches will give all the teams and fans a glimpse of what’s to come.  I can’t wait!
