Six Nations - round 3

The thrid round of Six Nations has just finished. The competition is fierce. Ireland beat Italy in Dublin 42:10 scoring 5 tries. This victory will definitely boost Irish morale before they face France next week.

In London, Wales won the triple crown defeating England. The game was full of emotions because of a very close score. The only try was scored by the substitute player Scott Williams. In the last minute, David Strettle found himself on the try line and it looked that the teams would draw. It turned out, however, that the try cannot be given which made Wales the winner 12:19.

In Edinburgh, a nerve-racking experience for the French and well playing Scots. In the 25th minute the Scottish were winning 10:0. They played ambitiously and were especially positive in the attacking. French managed to catch up and 3 minutes before the end of first half they were winning by 3 points. In the second half France proved better in scrums which eventually led to their victory over Scots. Despite their third defeat, Scotland showed determination and the game with France was their best performance in the tournament so far.
France only won by 6 points 17:23.
