With just 10 days until the start of the 2014 Six Nations, Paul O’Connell went face to face with his fellow captains in London today.

O’Connell travelled to the UK today with coach Joe Schmidt where he spent the morning with Sergio Parisse, Sam Warburton, Kelly Brown, Chris Robshaw and Pascal Pape for the competition’s photoshoot.

The six captains and six respective managers posed for pictures along with the trophy ahead of the eagerly awaited start of this year’s competition.

Ireland get their campaign underway on Sunday week when they host Scotland, while the day before Wales host the Italians in the opening fixture followed by France and England at the Stade de France.
