Kick and Clap! The Six Nations is Back!

The Six Nations, or should I say, “The Guinness Six Nations” kicked off on 2nd February in Paris and, what a start; France 17, Ireland 38!  The team from the Emerald Isle’s biggest win in Paris I believe. 

England’s 27-24 win in Rome against the Italian’s was a close-run thing.  Are England looking like a team likely to do well to finish fourth this year or are the Italian’s really going to be competitive?

In Ben’s homage to Rugby Union – “The Home Nations”, we’ve managed to ignore Paris and Rome in favour of the more important grounds in the British Isles (we don’t have a big following amongst Romans and Parisians, but who knows, perhaps one day?)

Murrayfield Edinburgh, AVIVA Stadium Dublin, Twickenham Stadium London and Principality Stadium Cardiff, are the grounds featured in Ben’s first sporting map themed piece, along with most of the top league sides’ grounds throughout the British Isles.  He has followed this up with Cricket, Football and F1 but, this was a cracking start that got him going.

Talking of crackers, what about the last game of the weekend – that really was a cracker!  Win for Scotland in Cardiff but they must feel deflated after nearly managing to pull defeat out of the jaws of victory!  20-0 up at half time and then 26-7 to Wales in the second half!
