Who's going to win the Six Nations rugby tournament?

"England have got a good chance now Jonny Wilkinson is in there

- they've been struggling without him. English sport has been dreadful recently and I think the public has lost a bit of interest. We need something to fire us up again."

"Like 98 per cent of the country I think Wilkinson was amazing on Saturday, which was a pity for Scotland . England have a good chance but I'm not sure if Scotland made them look good or not . We'll have to wait until they come up against better opposition. Scotland let themselves down and I don't think they've going to win the championship by any stretch of the imagination."

"I'm hopeful

Raymond Weaver

Weaver Wines, Glasgow

"Wales will win of course . We're decorating the shop in flags and getting behind them . It's important to get patriotic. Most of our customers agree

Wales are in with a good chance."

At Nielsen, we define the Christmas period as the 12 weeks to December 30 and in that time gin sales were £199.4 million, which means they increased by £55.4 million compared with Christmas 2016. There’s no sign the bubble is about to burst either. Growth at Christmas 2016 was £22.4 million, so gin has increased its value growth nearly two-and-a-half times in a year.
