England look to stop a historic Irish Six Nations Grand Slam
The Six Nations reaches its climax this weekend as the final round of fixtures gets underway. This year’s tournament has captured the sporting headlines and all rugby fans around the world will be watching in great anticipation as Ireland and England face off in Dublin. Ireland are looking to win a historic Grand Slam at the Aviva Stadium on what is set to be a St Patrick’s Day weekend to remember.
The stars appear to be aligning for the world’s number one ranked team, with legendary Irish captain Johnny Sexton playing his last Six Nations match. England will be doing all they can to stop the Irish celebrations as they have a point to prove after a difficult campaign. After rumours of his absence in training due to an ankle injury early in the week, England captain Owen Farrell will be in the starting XV for England in what is a boost to England fans’ slim hopes. An England win could see the Six Nations championship go to France, who along with Ireland are the only two teams left in contention. However, that unlikely scenario would require a bonus point from France’s game against Wales and Ireland not to receive a bonus point. Ireland have only won a Grand Slam on three occasions, the last time coming in 2018. The Irish go into the match as heavy favourites, however they will be feeling the pressure from the expectant home crowd. England have been described as underdogs in the media going into Saturday’s showdown, but can they break Irish hearts in what is shaping up to be a sporting classic?
With the Six Nations coming to an end, international rugby fans will be looking ahead to Rugby World Cup France 2023. Anticipation is already building for the tournament, which will be held across France’s most picturesque cities and is sure to provide the backdrop to the rugby experience of a lifetime.
