Six Nations Week Two Review3 min read
As Storm Ciara battered the British Isles, the Six Nations still went ahead providing plenty of drama in Week Two.
Wales faced insurmountable pressure from Ireland at the AVIVA. It was an all-action performance from the boys in green, a world away from last weekend’s laboured showing against Scotland.
Charging towards the Triple Crown is the next step for Ireland while Wales might need a lie down after that.
Murrayfield was a veritable cauldron of hate for Eddie Jones and his England side on Saturday. The bitterness of the Scots-English rivalry reared its ugly head in the build-up, priming the match for fireworks.
What followed on matchday was a battle of attrition in dramatic weather conditions where England’s character saw them overcome a relentless Scotland side.
Another game, another win for France as hopes for a first Six Nations trophy since 2010 begin to take hold. While not entirely convincing despite their five-try haul, Les Blues got the job done and have an eye on their trip to Cardiff next week.
Italy suffered yet another loss with questions of their participation back under discussion.
