Six Nations - round 4

The fourth round of Six Nations has finished. On Saturday, Wales defeated Italy 24:3. It's not the first time when the Welsh team proved it has a great potential. They managed to control the game from start to finish. Italy, despite their very ambitious play in defence, was neither able to keep the home team away from their try line nor threaten the Welsh effectively.

In the second game, Scotland was beaten by Ireland 32:14. In this very exciting game, Scots demonstrated spectacular rugby however again had to admit the superiority of the rival.

It was suprising to see England defeating France in Paris 22:24. The English team was winning 3:14 after Foden and Tuilagi's tries. Saint-Andre's team got very close to changing the score in the last minute and winning when Trinh-Duc attempted a drop goal. Unluckily for the French the ball did not reach its destination.

The last round of Six Nations starts in a few days and it looks that we are going to experience another exciting rugby weekend. Wales will be aiming for the Grand Slam. To achieve that they do need to win the game in Cardiff. Stuart Lancaster's team is the only one, at least theoretically, to stand a chance of taking the cup away from the Welsh. For this to happen, England needs to win high against Ireland and France against Wales. This scenario is very unlikely, though. Also next week we will witness an interesting game between Scotland and Itlay. Its  outcome will decide who will take Wooden Spoon home.
