Six Nations Championship Rugby

Update: 19 March 2018, Monday
That’s it folk! The 2018 Six Nations come to a close with champions, Ireland leading the pack with a perfect 5 game win. We’ll see you back here again next year for the 2019 championships!

Final Results
  • 1. Ireland – 26pts
  • 2. Wales – 15pts
  • 3. Scotland – 13pts
  • 4. France – 11pts
  • 5. England – 10pts
  • 6. Italy – 1pts

Update: 12 March 2018, Monday
So we come to the final weekend of the 2018 Six Nations. Ireland have already won the championship but it’ll be no dead rubber in Twickenham on Saturday, England will want to salvage some pride at home and Ireland will be gunning for the Grand Slam and Triple Crown. Wales find themselves in 2nd place and will look forward to hosting France in Cardiff, a home win will be expected, but France will be eager to build on their victory over England and will want to bag 2nd place for themselves. Scotland travel to Rome having not won a game on the road this year, whilst Italy will be desperate to come away with something to avoid a record 17th successive defeat in the tournament.
 
Three big games to bring the tournament to a close. The action begins in Rome at 1230 then onto the big bash in Twickenham at 1445, followed by hopefully the second place play-off in Cardiff at 1700.
 
You can watch the live video stream for free on BBC and iTV (UK), with local commentaries from S4C (Wales), TV3 (Ireland), France.TV (France) and DMAX (Italy), or via NBC Sports (USA) if you have a paid subscription with them.

 
Update: 26 February 2018, Monday
Not sure quite what happened with the BBC iPlayer this weekend, but the Ireland Wales game is still not available, so on Sunday morning I had the unexpected pleasure of watching Scotland beat England, nothing against England of course, but as an almost impartial fan it’s always great to see the underdogs take it to the favorites. You could see how important it was to the Scottish players and fans after the game, with beaming smiles all round and the stadium still half full 15 minutes after the end. Scotland, you might remember haven’t scored a try against England at home for fourteen years and this was their biggest winning margin in 32. It’s not all doom and gloom for England, Eddie Jones will be focused on next years World Cup, so getting a gentle reminder of their weaknesses 18 months out will do them the world of good.
 
In Dublin, Ireland moved firmly into the favorites seat by beating Wales 37-27 and over in Paris, Italy took a step closer to the wooden spoon after losing to France 34-17.
 
It’s another rest week so no Six nations this weekend. The action returns on the 10th March when Ireland host Scotland, can the Scots bottle some of the Murrayfield magic and take it over with them, I hope so. I hope it’s a good game, but Ireland will be unlikely to lose at home. France host England at 16.45, which logically would see the English demolish them, but it’s France so you never know. On Sunday Italy play Wales in Cardiff and I can’t see them coming away with any points.

 

Update: 12 February 2018, Monday
So it was back to the script for the second weekend, although perhaps not quite the happy ending Eddie Jones had in mind. England managed to hang on to an early lead in Twickenham, Scotland returned to their winning ways at home and Ireland were not really troubled by Italy, even if they did pick up a couple of injuries in the process.

The Six Nations takes a break next weekend and returns on Friday 23rd February for France vs Italy. On Saturday the 24th, Ireland will host Wales in Dublin at 14:15 followed by Scotland at home to England at 16:45.

 
Update: 5 February 2018, Monday
Wow, that was better than expected, especially if you’re Welsh 🙂 . Whilst England stuck to the script down in Rome, everyone else seemed to tear their’s up. France took Ireland to the wire and had Belleau’s kick gone over, would have won. As it was, Ireland kept the lead and won by the slimmest margins. Scotland, whilst possibly not quite favourites were certainly optimistic on their trip to Cardiff, only to be met by a Welsh team happy to keep the ball in play and throw it around a bit. All the talk of a resurgent Scotland in the Autumn appeared to evaporate and it was only a late try, when Wales were already 34 points to the good, that allowed the Scots to head North with any dignity left at all.
 
So it’s on to Week 2, which opens with Ireland hosting Italy, followed by arguably the main event, Wales in Twickenham. I honestly think Wales will be looking forward to it, England are in great form and at home will be definite favourites, but the Welsh love a bit of Slam Busting so you never know. The last game sees Scotland hosting France in Murrayfield, if they can forget Cardiff and get back some of their Autumn magic, they could come away with something. Come On!
