France 26, England 24 in Paris (6 Nations International Championship)
Wales 23, Italy 15 in Cardiff (6 Nations International Championship)
France and Wales got their 2014 6 Nations Championship ambitions off to good starts with wins last night.
In an exciting game of test rugby France scored a try and a conversion late in the game to steal the game away from England. France dominated the first half but England came back from 3-16 down to lead until that last try.
Wales had to battle against a tough and determined Italian side in Cardiff. The once powerful Italian scrum were outmuscled by the Welsh forwards. It was the Italian backs the lit up the park with some sparkling play and grand tries. Wales’ forward dominance told in the end.
Tomorrow Ireland and Scotland square off in Dublin to finish the 6 Nations first round.
