RBS 6 Nations 2015 – Breakdown by Game


RBS 6 Nations 2015 – Breakdown by Game


I think it’s safe to say that the dust has FINALLY settled on this year’s RBS 6 Nations Championship. What started with a whimper almost 7 weeks ago in Cardiff, ended in what can only be described as an earth shattering explosion of top class Rugby on probably,* the best Super Saturday we are ever likely to see. We were treated to monumental displays from all 6 sides, which broke no less that 15 records in the process, including a record points total of 221 points and 27 tries scored. Wales, who considered to be rank outsiders for the title on the dawn of Super Saturday absolutely whitewashed Italy, to show that they really are a force to be reckoned with, and not only on paper. Ireland, took Scotland apart in every aspect of the game, and showed no remorse as they equalled their biggest ever away win in the 6 Nations Championship. And… England v France…. Wow … End to End Rugby! France finally showed some flair that seems to have been hidden from view for most of this years tournament; whilst England’s young back line fired on all cylinders, running in try after try – something that will no doubt give Stuart Lancaster nightmares when thinking about future selections. A thrilling end to the championship resulted in Elation for Ireland, for winning back to back 6 Nations Championships, and gave some food for thought for the remaining teams. Such a thrilling tournament gauges very well for the upcoming World Cup in the Autumn with England, Ireland and Wales all becoming contenders for the crown in their own right. I hope you enjoy this Six Nations Visualisation, as being Irish – I definitely did!
