It’s the final day of the Six Nations. It always seems to go too fast! Wales will be hoping to right the wrongs of last weekend, in which an extremely slow start cost them dearly at Twickenham.
In an intriguing final round of fixtures, a resurgent Scotland will face Ireland full of confidence in Dublin, while England’s Grand Slam hopes rely on a powerful display against France in Paris.
From a Wales persepective, it’s important we finish on a high note after last week’s disappointing showing. It’s hard to believe that victory today would seal a second-place finish, which would be Wales’ best finish in the last three seasons, despite losing one game and drawing another. I think it goes to show that the competition has been more difficult this term, especially with Scotland right back in the mix.
With Jusin Tipuric in for the injured Sam Warburton, Rhys Webb starting, and live-wire Hallam Amos on the wing, I’m hoping for a high-scoring game to light up the Principality Stadium. We saw some Italy supporters arrive in Bridgend yesterday; lets hope for a carnival day of rugby!
