It's the oldest international rugby competition in the world, and still remains the cream of European international rugby. Originating as a four team competition comprising of the four home unions, it has grown to include France and more recently Italy to form the Six-Nations as we know it today.

There is a lot riding on the 2013 season.

Certainly some reputations need to be rebuilt after what was a lacklustre performance from the European sides against their Southern Hemisphere counterparts in November. Add to this, the prospect of selection for the British and Irish Lions team, which will tour Australia later this year, and it isn't hard to see that the incentive there will be.

The competition kicks-off this weekend and will continue throughout February and March.
