With Grand Slam included: Ireland beat England to win the Six Nations

El Trébol, winner 29-16, had a perfect tournament after beating all the teams. In addition, victory over the Rose meant obtaining the Triple Crown and the Millennium Cup. Meanwhile, Italy fell to Scotland and took the wooden spoon.

It’s all party in Ireland. El Trébol beat England 29-16 to become undefeated Six Nations champions.

Ahora, el objetivo es el Mundial de Francia, donde, con la primera posición del ranking en sus espaldas, buscarán superar el maleficio de los quarter-finals.

An injured La Rosa team was presented as a difficult stumbling block for the champions, who were far from the impressive level displayed throughout the contest. Nerves gripped the team led by Andy Farrell and mistakes became the key word. However, They fulfilled the task and managed a difficult match against a team that showed a completely different face after the humiliating defeat inflicted by France last week.

The French cast, who finished second, refused to give up their hegemony and defended the crown they secured last year until the last minute, beating Wales 41-28 and forcing Clover to victory.

Ireland alone added its fourteenth title (five since it is the Six Nations), counting the Four Nations and the Five Nations, and the twenty-third overall . Thus, they tied Scotland as the fourth most successful country in the contest. They also won the Millennium Cup a trophy created in 1988 and awarded each year to the winner of the duel between the English and the Irish.

In this line, the victory over La Rosa meant a historic performance, since they achieved a lot of victories. Thanks to this, they won the Grand Slam for the fourth time . Besides, beating England was another reward: the Triple Crown a trophy given to the team which manages to beat all the British teams (England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland).

Scotland beat Italy 26-14 to finish third. The Italians, on the other hand, took the wooden spoon, the “punishment” received by the team that loses each game. England and Wales finished fourth and fifth respectively.
