The first weekend of 6 Nations action is over and here are the results:
France 23 Italy 21
France won, but not by much. It was an exciting match and Italy played very well, but in the end France was the better team. Hopefully France will bring their A game to compete with Ireland next Saturday.
England 15 Scotland 9
Not a ton of excitement. The match and the players were quite slow. I didn’t feel like there was a lot of support.
Ireland 16 Wales 16
the pace of this match was night and day compared to the England-Scotland match. The speed of play and the support shown by the Forwards was what really set this contest apart for me. The aggressiveness of the Forwards once a tackle had been made was exciting to watch.
I had to stop watching and go to work, but not before Ireland pushed ahead for their first try instead of settling for an easy three.
