Six Nations - Week 4

Following yesterdays games, the six nations are gearing up for a tight finish. Though England is the only team on for a Grand Slam, the championship is not yet won. Wales have a chance of victory, especially with an Italian win vs England today. Regardless of the result against Italy today, next week is crunch-time.

Should Italy win today, the Grand Slam dream is over, but a win against Wales will see England raise the cup on the 16th. Gloom is over this week, and a win sees happy faces.... however, by the same token, Wales could get it.

Should England win today against Italy, Wales need to beat England by a margin (yet to be determined) in order to raise the trophy. Should they beat England by a lesser margin, the trophy will be English, but the English will no doubt feel disappointed. Should England beat the welsh, it will be a grand slam.

What do I think will happen?

  1. I expect England to have a tough time against Italy, winning the game, but giving a scare in the process
  2. For the Wales game, I expect this to be a real challenge, no surprises there, and can imagine Wales coming out strong, gaining an early lead, and for England to be under the kosh at the start of the game. I'm hoping for an English win, but I fear that Wales may pip them. If life were a storybook, I'd expect a Welsh win in the game, but an English win in the championship - and thus gloomy faces all round!
