Test Rugby Results

Ireland 14, England 13 in Dublin (6 Nations)
Scotland 26, Italy 6 at Murrayfield (6 Nations)
Russia 28, Romania 19 in Bucharest (WCQ Europe R1; ENC 1)
Georgia 55, Spain 11 in Madrid (WCQ Europe R1; ENC 1)

Ireland just squeaked passed England at Croke Park. The win now leaves Ireland as the only undefeated team in the 6 Nations Championship, and the only team that can possibly achieve the Grand Slam.

Scotland swept Italy away 26-6. The Italians now look like being the Wooden Spoon holders for 2009. Will it signal the end of Nick Mallet's coaching time in Italy?

Russia defeated the more fancied Romanians 28-19 in Bucharest and now look to challenge Georgia for the second European place at the 2011 Rugby World Cup. Meanwhile Georgia finally clicked into gear with a huge 55-11 win over Spain in Madrid.
