WHAT A WEEKEND!
Congratulations WALES! Grand Slam Champions.
Very well deserved, and I can't remember ever seeing Ireland getting dismantled like that.
Speaking of dismantling...
Scotland were 10-1 odds against beating England at Twickenham, and those looked like quite short odds in the first half as England completely
dismantled Scotland and raced into a 31-0 lead. At this point... something
happened. I have no idea what, but Scotland started to actually play
and they scored a "consolation" try just before half time.
Cue the half-time roasting and arguments in the dressing room, swiftly followed by the best Scotland performance of this years championship. SIX
unanswered Scotland tries later and the score was an incredible 31-38 TO SCOTLAND.
But, being Scotland... we let England back in to level things up with the very last phase of play and it ended a 38-38 draw.
The biggest comeback in international rugby history and also the highest ever scoring draw! (apparently).
I would have bet my house on an England victory at half-time, I've NEVER seen anything like it.
What a game, what a championship well done Scotland on retaining the Calcutta Cup! Well done Wales on a magnificent Grand Slam!
The World Cup is going to be AMAZING!
