Wales and France

            The third round in the European Six Nations saw England continuing undefeated with a 21-10 convincing win over Ireland, last year’s champion. Two second half tries from Watson and Brown distanced England from a lackluster Irish XV that managed only one try, a conversion, and a single penalty kick. England, on top with six points, will meet Wales at home on March 12th in what should be the decider of this year’s championship. (A full house at Twickenham with 82,000)

            Wales defeated a dull France side 19-10 to move into second place with five points. The Welsh forged ahead 16-3 to earn their second win of the season. The question is can Wales beat England for a second time in less than six months?

            The final game witnessed Scotland beating Italy 36-20 with three tries and five penalties, ending a long drought. Scotland netted 21 points off the boot of Laidlaw who had five penalties and three conversions.           

            On tap in two weeks are:

            Ireland vs. Italy

            England vs. Wales

            Scotland vs. France
