For the millions watching the highlight of the European rugby calendar this weekend, I should think a large percentage of fans will have a pint in hand – be they cheering from the stands or tucked up in the (warmer) comfort of their own front room.

So how to spice up your RBS 6 Nations viewing? Just follow the Sunday Times’ drinking games and at least there will be a method to the mullering:


Can’t get a ticket for the game but want to recreate the tension and excitement in your own living room and forget about the global economic misery? Why not have a load of friends over to play our Six Nations drinking game*, with forfeits based on the BBC’s coverage:
