Action stations: Six Nations 2016

I only bring this up because I am in a tight spot deciding who will win this year’s Six Nation’s tournament. Despite almost perfectly predicting (humble brag) the final standings ahead of last year’s tournament (I didn’t foresee Italy beating Scotland), this year I genuinely think four teams could win the tournament (apologies Scotland and Italy. It would only be three but who ever really knows what France might do) but I can’t decide who. So I need to bring in the best. A whole bunch of them in fact, because the 1980s and ‘90s produced a murderers row of great action stars.
