2018 Rugby Six Nations

When Ireland played France in Paris, it was a very active game.  Ireland got off to a great start and went 10 points ahead, then got 7 points back.  It was a great kick by Jonathan Sexton over the bar, when Ireland won the game in the last 2 minutes.

Then when Ireland played Italy, Ireland played top the best of their ability and went 15 points ahead.  It was a very active game and Italy had their moments and got a few tries but Ireland pulled away and won the game.  It was a very enjoyable game and the fans loved it.

On Saturday 24th of February Ireland will played Wales in the Aviva stadium.  It was a great game to watch. Wales are a very capable team but when it came to the crunch Ireland were the better team winning 37-27.

On the 10th March we played against Scotland in the Aviva Stadium and won  28–8.

The Championship was won by Ireland in Twickenham on 10 March 2018, After a 24–15 victory against England on that day, Ireland secured a Grand Slam, their third ever, alongside the Triple Crown.

Jacob Stockdale who plays for Ireland won the player of the tournament and was also the top try scorer.  I’m looking forward to next year already!!
