International Rugby Results: 14 Feb.09

Wales 23, England 15 in Cardiff (6 Nations)
France 22, Scotland 13 in Paris (6 Nations)
Georgia 20, Portugal 20 in Tblissi (WCQ Europe R1; ENC 1)
Romania 22, Germany 0 in Heidelberg (WCQ Europe R1; ENC 1)

Wales had to struggle to subdue and England side that rose to the occasion. Could this be the start of the England revival the fans have been waiting for. Wales are still well on track to retain their hold of the 6 Nations Chmapionship Trophy.

France stutted and splutted against a spirited but eventually outplayed Scottish side. Neither side will threaten the leaders of this competition playing this way. The French crowd booed their team for much of the game. Hard to please?

In a reportedly awful game Georgia managed a draw with Portugal. Georgia had all the territory but failed to convert that into the extra points that could have won them the game. Georgia are the holders of the European Nations Cup but they need to find the 'on' button to the game plan. Portugal will not win games without possession and territory. Today they were lucky they got away with a draw.

Romania continued its advance along the winning path. Germany played well but could not convert possession into points. They will continue to struggle until they can score points.

  1. A good game of Portugal in the defence.
    Georgia not used some penalties on goal.
    As a result of these points is not enough for victory.
    Best moments of the game.
