Six Nations International Round Up
After a week’s break the Six Nations was back underway with some mouth watering fixtures over the weekend.
Scotland v Wales
One of the results of the weekend saw Scotland come from behind to record a famous 29-13 victory over Wales which sees them climb to fifth in the world ranking, their highest position ever. Saracens’ Sean Maitland was ruled out of the game with a knock picked up last week but future Saracen Liam Williams was in action for Wales, scoring his side’s first try mid way through the first half. A quick tap from Rhys Webb set up the Welsh attack who moved the ball across the width of pitch, setting up Williams who ran over in the corner.
England v Italy
Sunday’s Six Nations action saw England take on Italy at Twickenham with Owen Farrell, Maro Itoje, Jamie George and Mako Vunipola all in action for the home side. The occasion marked Farrell’s 50th cap for his country while Mako Vunipola made his return to international action from the bench after having been ruled out of the tournament so far through injury. England endured a tough first half as their game plan was disrupted by some now infamous tactics from the Azurri but came back in the second half to claim a 36-15 win to keep them unbeaten at the top of the Six Nations table.
England U20s v Italy U20s
The U20s competition also saw a number of Saracens in action, with Dominic Morris and Nick Isiekwe lining up for England against Italy. Jack Nay was also initially named in the starting XV but injury forced his late withdrawal. The U20s led 17-0 at the break before adding to their tally in the second half to finish the game with eight tries scored and a 46-0 win to their name.
