6 Nations - so far

Simon Smith - Thursday, February 18, 2016

We're two weeks into the 6 Nations Championship, with the third round of matches coming next Friday and Saturday (25th/26th), so let's see how the teams are doing!

England and France have both won both of their matches earning each team 4 points in the table, with these teams not facing off until the last day of the games. At this rate, this final match will be the decider of the whole competition.

Behind these current victors comes Wales, with a draw and a win under their belt, and Ireland in 4th with a draw and a loss.

Yet to win any games so far are Scotland and Italy.

Let's take a look at the points...

Nation

Score

England 4
France 4
Wales 3
Ireland 1
Scotland 0
Italy 0

Ireland's hopes of a 6 Nations hat trick seem far off at this point, and the new head coaches for France and England are certainly paying off so far.

Next week's matches see Wales play France on Friday night, and on Saturday afternoon Italy are playing Scotland and England are against Ireland.

Looking at how the teams have played so far, Wales and Ireland have hard games ahead of them, but anything could happen! One things for sure, Italy or Scotland will gain their first points of the championship next week.
