Could someone explain what needs to happen next week for Ireland to win the 6Ns?

Scotland needs to beat England, and Ireland beat Wales.



Not that it will matter but what happens if England don’t get the bonus point and Ireland beat Wales by 65 points more than England beat Scotland. Does it go to head to head or points difference?
Keep it real and just ask what's the tiebreaker when two or more teams are tied on points.
 Answer is  points difference.

Could Wales win the every game (Grand Slam) and not win the championship?

No. . . you get an extra 3 points for a Grand slam!

Ah never knew that, cheers.

On another note any good sites out there for watching 6 nations highlights?

Is BBCiplayer available where you are. You can watch highlights on it.
youtube has the full game and highlights

Great stuff from the U20s, grinding out the Grand Slam.

Great try by Reilly. One to watch for Connacht in the future. I believe he’s playing AIL with Buccaneers of Athlone at the moment. Something we’ve been lacking in our 9s at senior level is the ability to snipe like he did a couple of times tonight. Davies from Wales is decent at sniping, as was Mike Phillips (remember him?). Will be interesting to see how his future pans out. Considering that he wasn’t even in the 23, ‘twas some going to get the winner. Serious gas. He’s made his mark, hopefully there’s more to come, seems a good passer, ability to snipe. Only thing we didn’t see him do was kick.
He’s the man of the moment and deservedly so.

I’d like to say Ireland will win both have momentum but Wales more and at home should just sway it, would hate for Jones to steal it based on Ireland wining
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

It was a good game and a good performance from Ireland under 20s. They did it without their first choice half backs who dropped out late in the day before the game.

Italy are a f**king joke should have scored about 5 tries. Their half backs are both useless. Why oh why have they not brought a kiwi outhalf in years ago who could at leat kick the points

That's the second time this 6N Ireland have conceded in the first 2 minutes. Everyone is kicking the ball against them now and they can't seem to cope.
