In case I forgot to mention it…
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.
As Joe Biden would say, “This is a big f*cking deal.” 🙂
