The Six Nations came to a glittering end on Saturday with England claiming a first Grand Slam since 2003. Wales triumphed emphatically against Italy notching up nine trys and Ireland made Scotland pay for their errors in the Celtic affair which culminated in a fantastic weekend of rugby.
We now look back to our predictions at the start of the tournament to see how we faired and if anyone correctly guessed how the final table would look.
- England – Correct
Defeating everyone in their way to claim the Grand Slam, England are 2016 Six Nations champions!
- Wales – Correct
An opening day draw to Ireland followed by defeat to England left Wales finishing second but topped the table in points scored – an incredible 150!
- Ireland – Correct
Ireland had to wait until round three for their first win with a narrow defeat against France proving costly in their quest for three championships in a row.
- Scotland – Correct
Monumental wins against Italy and France lifted the Scots up the table but ultimately losses against their home nations counterparts left them languishing in fourth.
- France – Correct
The French got off to a good start, defeating Italy and Ireland by the skin of their teeth, but when it came to tackling Wales, Scotland and England their luck had ran out.
- Italy – Correct
Once again the Italians failed to muster a win in the Six Nations to leave with the wooden spoon.
So, we got the table right! Bravo, bravo.
Unfortunately, none of your guesses were correct, but we’ll be picking your brain for Euro 2016 predictions soon for a chance to win some epic prizes. In the mean time check out the moment England clinched it –
6 nations, 15 games, 71 trys, 693 points and 1 Grand Slam. Congratulations England. What a scintillating Six Nations we’ve had, until next year…..
