Six Nations 2015: Ireland win title from England & Wales

Champions Ireland retained their Six Nations title on points difference after an extraordinary final day.

The last round of games concluded with England falling agonisingly short of the 26-point winning margin they needed as they beat France 55-35 in an epic.

The day had started with Wales annihilating Italy 61-20 in Rome.

Ireland needed a huge win and their 40-10 demolition of Scotland was enough to both pass Wales and set a target just beyond England.

With three teams on three wins apiece going into the final round of games the stage was set, and what followed was one of the most incredible days in the tournament since it was first played in 1883, with 221 points scored in the three matches.

I’ll be quiet now.

Oh, it was warm enough here today to have coffee on the patio.

    Sorry, remind me again who it was who won?

  2. Congrats! There’s nothing like “the thrill of victory.”
    My boy works for the team that lost the Super Bowl. We know the flip side, “the agony of defeat.” Such amazingly powerful emotions on both sides of the coin and, as we know, the outcome can change in just seconds. Revel in your winning-ness !

      We have experienced the snatch of defeat from the jaws of victory on a number of occasions. This one could have gone that way… France, god bless her soul, decided to run the ball in front of the English line with 5 seconds to go. We were all screaming, kick the fecking ball out…the 90 minutes was up, but France wanted another try!

      Sanity prevailed however and one of the French guys eventually kicked the ball out. We are not right yet.
