On Friday 4th February we had the opening ceremony of the 2022 Winter Olympics, officially called the XXIV Olympic Winter Games in Beijing. Then on Saturday 5th Sunday 6th February we had the opening weekend of the 2022 Guinness Six Nations Championship. So far Team GB haven't got off to a winning start after the Curling mixed doubles pair lost their bronze medal match*. Great Britain's wait for their first medal at the Beijing Winter Olympics goes on.
England's opening Rugby match against Scotland didn't get off to a good start and they were beaten by a world class Scotland 20-17. Despite the loss, there was encouraging signs from England who were good in possession and had attacking intent but on the day they were not good enough to beat Scotland.
There are still plenty of games ahead with another 4 weeks of matches. This weekend we take on Italy, followed by Wales, Ireland and France.
