It's Saturday, I'm Jenny and it's another big weekend
of sporting action - first up, it's the Six Nations.
And one of the tournament's biggest games takes place later -
Wales take on England in Cardiff.
It's the 130th time they've played.
Last week, Wales beat Italy and England squeezed past
France to keep up their 15 match winning run.
Here's the Welsh captain, Alan Wyn Jones.
You come out and you've got 75,000 fans that
are there for what's hopefully
going to be a good 80-minute game.
You realise you're in a very fortunate place and you get to enjoy
the anthem before the game.
Hopefully we can put smiles on faces.
And we want to know what you think will happen.
Can England keep their winning record going
or will Wales beat them?
Go online and let us know.
Volunteers in New Zealand have managed to re-float about 100
of the 400 pilot whales that became stranded on beaches on Friday.Sadly
many whales have died and it's thought another 200 many have
got stuck overnight.
It's the worst case of this type the country has ever seen.
It's not uncommon for these animals to become beached like this.
But why does it happen?
Here's what you need to know.
Beaching is when whales become stuck on sand and it can be very
Marine scientists then have one clear reason to explain why
Here are some of the theories.
It's thought some whales become stranded because they are
sick or injured and are pushed in shore by currents, or are simply too
ill to swim.
Whales rely on something called sonar to work out
where they are and where they are going.
They send sound waves or pulses which bounce back of surfaces.
Some ships use of sonar pulses, too.
They have been linked to whales getting stranded because
scientists think if the two crossed paths, the whales could become
confused or injured.
It's thought changes in the environment could
cause them to behave differently, too.
Perhaps food stocks are low, temperatures are unusually high
or low, or the water they are in has become polluted.
Even whales make mistakes.
It is thought they can sometimes lose their way into
shallow waters by accident while travelling to warmer waters to mate.
Whales are very sociable creatures and often travel
in large pods or groups.
Marines think if any whale is affected by any of the last four
reasons, any travelling with it will copy them.
That's all from me, for now, Newsround's back

Have a great Saturday!
