The 11th March 2017…What a spectacular day for English rugby. Even people with a passing interest in rugby will have felt proud that England were so convincing in the tournament and their match against Scotland showed why Eddie Jones and his talented team prove seemingly unbeatable over 2016 and in to 2017.
English rugby events fans will have felt little sympathy for visitors Scotland, who faced a 61-21 defeat and all eyes fell on what Super Saturday – 18th March – could deliver.
Jonathon Joseph scored an impressive three tries in the Scotland match and the team have spoken in the press about their intense training regime and focus which are clearly working in their favour.
On Steve Borthwick, Jamie George said, “I played with him for five years and the death stare he used to give me as a player isn’t half as bad as the one he gives me as a coach.”
On the 11th March England made it to 18 matches unbeaten which tied with New Zealand’s record.
The women’s England team beat Scotland 64-0 and their tally was at 4/4 wins. Kay Wilson scored an incredible 7 tries in this match.
The male Under 20’s team beat Scotland’s by 33-5 with captain Zach Mercer securing victory and bonus points.
18th March 2017: Potential greatness.
England could become the first to win three Grand Slams in one weekend as the men’s, women’s and men’s Under-20’s sides travel to Ireland, all with perfect records.
England’s Under 20s have already won the Six Nations rugby title for the 5th time in 7 years. They, like the men’s team, are looking to claim the slam.
The women’s match will decide their championship. It will be either Ireland or England who wins, both want it, who’ll achieve it? Neither has lost a match this championship.
England’s men have won the Six Nations Rugby already but they want to cement their place in history again by taking the Grand Slam for a second consecutive year. Ireland stand in their way.
The men’s matches:
- Scotland vs. Italy at Murrayfield – 12:30.
- France vs. Wales at Stade de France – 15:45.
- Ireland vs. England at the Aviva Stadium – 17:00.
