The Six Nations returned on Saturday Six Nations Rugby 2017 Live – re-live the action as it happened as Ireland comprehensively beat Italy and England set up a chance to win the Grand Slam by beating Wales….
Today we enter the fourth round and the title could very well be decided by the day’s end.First up we have Ireland hosting Italy, kicking off at 1.30pm, with both sides looking for their first win in this year’s tournament.
Joe Schmidt’s Irish side have been plagued by injury Six Nations Rugby 2017 Live and managed to draw with Wales before losing to both France and England. Italy, on the other hand, narrowly lost to France in the opening round but were then soundly beaten by both England and Scotland.
Following that Wales travel to Twickenham to face England in what will surely be the game of the weekend. England will be out to avenge the 28-25 loss they suffered to Warren Gatland’s side during last year’s World Cup, but a win for the Welsh would see them leapfrog their hosts into first place.
England edged to the brink of a first RBS 6 Nations title for five years with a 25-21 victory over Wales but were forced to survive a late fightback that evoked memories of the final-quarter collapse against their old rival at last autumn’s World Cup. Eddie Jones’ men led 19-0 and 25-7 during the second half through an Anthony Watson try and the boot of Owen Farrell, who kicked six penalties and one conversion, but their defence fell apart in a dramatic finish.
