Stuart Barnes: Ireland's trip to Twickenham to take on England is shaping up to be a Six Nations classic

The high point of the Six Nations is set to be round three. Wales, after being utterly out-thought and outplayed by Joe Schmidt's team, have to beat France in order to restore both their pride and any hope of making it three Six Nations titles in a row.

Stuart, do you think Irelands line out and maul can be as effective against England and the very thoughtful lancaster an farrell?

Hi Stuart, At what point do you think Tom Young's throwing in to the lineout becomes a real issue and the coaches think of dropping him from the match day squad?

Hi Stuart, The french press over here are waxing lyrically about France winning the Grand Slam (and they might), but after watching their first two games they really seems to be no game plan, or leadership. Individual performances (Fofana, Nyanga) are one thing but they seem lacking in any collective creativity and go forward...any thoughts?

Hi stuart, Ireland have been good so far this year but in fairness so far we've played a poor welsh and scottish side, rugby is deteriorating on a domestic level within these countries, I do accept twickenham will be a huge challenge and the winners will be most likely champions if not grand slam contenders, my question for you though is looking at this current Irish team, how would you fancy theyre chances for world cup 2015 Thanks Derek
