Guiness Six Nations 2020

 

England v Wales

Saturday 7th March - Twickenham - Kick Off  4.45 pm - Live ITV

 

England take on Wales in their penultimate match of this Six Nations Championship.  England really have to win this match to keep their hopes alive of winning the Championship as I really can't see Scotland beating France, can you?

The table as it stands:-

POSTEAMPLWDLPTS
1 France 3 3 0 0 13
2 England 3 2 0 1 9
3 Ireland 3 2 0 1 9
4 Wales 3 1 0 2 6
5 Scotland 3 1 0 2 6
6 Italy 3 0 0 3 0

 Also the Six Nations committee made this statement this week. 

Six Nations notes the decree issued by the Italian Government on March 4th with respect to all upcoming sporting events in that country.

The decision has now been taken to postpone the three matches between Italy and England (Men’s, Women’s, and U20) set to take place over the weekend of 13th/14th/15th March, with the intention to reschedule them at later dates.

Getting back to this weekend's game.   England Flanker Mark Wilson and wing Anthony Watson will make their first England appearances since the Rugby World Cup after being named to start against Wales in the Six Nations on Saturday.  This game seems to be really hyped up and a bit of needle going on but for me it is just another game!  Heads up lads' let's take the game to them from the start and go get the win.

Also let's enjoy this spectical as we might not have stadia sport for a while 

As for Wales Jonathan Davies is back in the side for the first time since November to face England.
