Ireland’s chances of a first Six Nations Grand Slam remain alive after their 22-15 defeat of Scotland.
The Scots led at half time, but Brian O’Driscoll’s men dominated the second half, and once they’d regained the lead, they never really looked like losing.
In Rome, Wales edged past Italy with a 5-point win, and with nine changes to the side that lost to France, they never quite got going. With ten minutes to go, Warren Gatland was looking slightly uncomfortable as they trailed by two points until Tom Shanklin scored the decisive try.
The result is the delicious prospect of Ireland versus Wales in the final game next weekend. The Welsh hopes of lifting the trophy are fairly slim due to their inferior points difference, but they’ll be determined to prevent an Irish Grand Slam at all costs.
What are your views on Saturday’s action? Did Scotland deserve to win? Did Wales deserve to lose?
