6 Nations Ireland vs. England
From: 2015.03.17 To: 2015.03.17
Could this be the deciding match of the tournament? If pre-6 Nations form is anything to go by, then it well could be the case. The best rugby teams in the Northern Hemisphere meet to ruck, maul, tackle, scrum and kick their way victory in the sport's annual competition. England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France and Italy go head to head for the 6 Nations Trophy but that's only part of the story. Intense national rivalries with over 100 year's of bone-crunching history are fought out over 80 minutes of pure beauty, skill and power. These grudge matches come with their own prizes like the Calcutta Cup (England vs. Scotland) the Millennium Trophy (England vs. Ireland) and the Giuseppe Garibaldi Trophy (France vs. Italy). The format of the championship is simple: each team plays every other team once, with home field advantage alternating from one year to the next. Two points are awarded for a win, one for a draw and none for a loss. The World Cup and national tours are important, but it's the 6 Nations which is the lifeblood of international rugby in Europe. Expect tough, explosive and scintillating games.
