This weekend sees the final round of 6 Nations matches with the title already decided. After a stuttering start, England showed off their true potential against Scotland last weekend and with Ireland losing in Cardiff, no-one can catch the unbeaten English team.
However, don’t think that will result in any teams taking their foot off the gas after what have been an extremely tough but very exciting first 4 rounds.
Scotland will be licking their wounds after facing an English team that finally found their stride. With an early sin bin and the loss of their form player Stuart Hogg, the Scots were no match for England. They welcome the improving Italians to Murrayfield in the first match tomorrow. Although somewhat battered last weekend, the Scots will want to prove that their impressive wins against the Welsh and French were no flukes and end the tournament on a high. There is little chance of complacency in the Scottish camp with Vern Cotter at the helm so expect a good victory for the Scots.
The second game sees the battered but impressive Welsh squad travelling to Paris to face the French. The usually unpredictable French seem to have been a little more predictable during the 6 Nation and if the Welsh have recovered sufficiently from the very tough match against the Irish, they should come through with their 3rd win of the Championship.
The Irish will also still be feeling the effects of their battle with the Welsh and will need to be at their best to compete with England in this final match of the Championship. They start without 2 of their most impressive players over the last 12 months or so in Connor Murray and Rob Kearney and will certainly need their play maker, Johnny Sexton, to stay on the pitch for the duration to give themselves a chance. The timing of these injuries is far from ideal though as they face an English hitting very good form. Expect the English to break the All Blacks’ world record by winning their 19th consecutive rugby international.
