The Six Nations Championship began today, with Ireland trying to recover from a disappointing World Cup showing last year. A 16-11 defeat of Italy is a win, but not a very convincing one. On the other hand, Wales defeating England 26-19 at Twickenham is always good news.
Remaining fixtures for the Irish are:
- France (2/7) at Stade de France
- Scotland (2/23) at Croke Park
- Wales (3/8) at Croke Park
- England (3/15) at Twickenham
Any readers in Europe manage to see the game (or for that matter the Welsh victory)? Any comments?
I resisted making comments about rugby being infinitely better than American “football”. Put it down to it being Superbowl weekend. I’m feeling charitable.
