Two rounds of the 2024 Six Nations have been completed and there is a fallow week before the tournament resumes on February 24. The week off has divided opinion, with some fans considering it unnecessary and others seeing it as necessary. For the teams, it is also a mixed bag. Some teams desperately need the break to recover and make tactical adjustments, while others would have preferred to continue and build momentum. In this article, we will analyze which teams benefit the most from the fallow week and which teams would have wanted to continue playing. Ireland, currently in first place, is already far ahead of the competition and the break doesn't affect their dominance. England, in second place, can use the break to regroup and work on their defensive system. Scotland, in third place, will appreciate the break after a rollercoaster start. France, in fourth place, needs the break to recover physically and mentally. Wales, in fifth place, would have preferred to continue playing to gain more experience. Italy, in sixth place, can benefit from the extra week's training to adjust to their new era under coach Gonzalo Quesada.
