ENGLAND VERSUS WALES

The second round of the NatWest Six Nations Men’s championship saw England and Ireland win their second match, and Scotland came from behind to defeat France, earning their first victory of 2018.

The “Big Game” between England at home against Wales turned out to be a defensive struggle with the score 12 for the Red Roses and 6 for the Scarlet. A TMO disallowed a Welsh second half try but, upon close review, the attempted try by Gareth Anscombe had been preceded by a knock on by teammate Steff Evans. England continues to roll over their Six Nations opponents, setting up, possibly, the final match against Ireland, which might determine this year’s title winner.

Scotland trailed France 10-0 and then 20-14 before coming alive in the second half, and triumphing 32-26. Greg Laidlaw booted six penalties for 18 points that spelled the difference. Teddy Thomas notched two tries for France.

Ireland enjoyed an easy win against Italy away, winning 56-14 with two intercepted tries. At one point Ireland were up 42-0.
