Six Nations Round Up – Victory to Wales
At the start of the 2013 Six Nations Championships England were favoured to win after beating World Champions New Zealand in December 2012. France too was on a winning streak and defending champions Wales (pictured above) had suffered seven consecutive defeats without regular head coach Warren Gatland at the helm.
In Round 1played on 2 February, England enjoyed a comfortable 38–18 victory against Scotland and Wales lost 22–30 against Ireland. France suffered an upset going down 23–18 against Italy.
Round 2 saw England win against Ireland and Scotland beat Italy 34–10. Wales gained their first Six Nations victory since 2011 against France. Round 3 saw Wales trump Italy 9–26 and England lash France 23–13. Scotland defeated Ireland for a second consecutive victory and the outcome of the tournament looked hard to decipher.
Round 4 saw Wales defeat Scotland 13-26 and win a record fifth consecutive away match in the Six Nations. England remained undefeated overall after beating Italy 12-17. Ireland and France tied 13–13, putting France on the points board, with zero chance of taking the coveted Northern Hemisphere title.
Undefeated England looked strong at this stage on 8 points and Wales had 6 points, with one loss. Such close scores meant their match against each other in the final week, would define the championship title if Wales won and scored more than seven points advantage (giving them 8 points for winning, equalising there, and then needing extra points to win overall match point stats.) With Scotland on 4 points, Ireland on 3, Italy on 2 and France on 1 the nation stopped still to watch the England/Wales clash on March 16.
Wales defeated England by 30–3, their largest all-time win over England, taking the RBS Six Nations Cup in style.
The Rugby Championships – Formerly the Tri Nations
The Rugby Championships Southern Hemisphere matches include stalwart teams Australia, New Zealand and South Africa alongside newcomers Argentina. This fearsome contest played out in early October 2013 is followed by the ultimate competiton, the Rugby World Cup.
Findutickets has official Rugby World Cup tour hospitality and tickets for all the upcoming world cup matches.
The Rugby League World Cup is another chance for England to shine, and Wales is now viewed as a hot contender. Wales hasn’t won a match against the southern hemisphere sides since November 2008 in this competition, so rest assured the side is training hard to reclaim rugby league supremacy for the northern hemisphere!
