With the first round of the Six Nations Championship done and dusted, it is Scotland who find themselves sitting pretty at the helm of things after picking a bonus point against Italy in a 33-20 victory at BT Murrayfield where they have not lost in over three years.
Scotland looked strong despite letting the Azzurri run in three tries in the last stage of the game. Their unbeaten run on home soil will face a big test when they face host Ireland next weekend.
England are second on the log after upsetting champions and favorites Ireland 32-20 in Dublin. Ireland coach speaking after the game admitted of his team being manhandled and bullied in a dominant display by Eddie Jones’ men. The English side look to be in a good form as momentum builds towards World Rugby cup in Japan.
Ireland lie fifth and will be looking to unleash a stealth backlash they head to Murrayfield to face a fired up Scottish side who lead the proceedings.
Wales are third after producing a sublime second half performance, with a little bit of luck to see off France 24-19 in front of a french crowd. A night that the Les Blues will want to forget soon enough as they gave away a 16-0 half time lead in a match that many thought France had bagged the victory. The french who are fourth after picking one point will have to forget the loss fast enough as they hit the road to face England.
Here are the fixtures of the second round of the Six Nations Championship.
