Six Nations Round 3 WRap



Six Nations Round 3 Wrap

8             minutes of extra time meant and additional 7 for France through La Rochelle breakaway, Greg Alldritt, for his brace in relief of 8man, Louis Picamoles, and Les Bleus topped Scotland at Stade de France, 27-10; 19 years old flyhalf got his first international 5er and one might think the first of many for the legacy;

            the advantage after 40 for visitors at 10-3; in a massive second stanza Wales got the better of their English guests through the courageous efforts of fullback, Liam Williams, who hung toughest under the high hangers early in the last half, enabling support and the smooth transition from defense to offense a number of times; homeboys NZ-born 10, Gareth Anscombe punished England indiscretion twice with sticksplitters just shy of the hour mark, but a penalty struck from the toe on England 10, Owen Farrell, extended the travelers lead to 4 at 13-9, before the Welsh steady, methodic pattern bore fruit for 5 by 4, Cory Hill, at ’67 and homeboys had their first lead of the match, 14-13; after the plus-2 by Anscombe relief, Dan Biggar, 16-13 for home side right then; with the Welsh choir in full voice, Wales wrapped the match with a touch down by wing, Josh Adams, in the 77th for a 21-13 last call and new world champion: just ask anyone in Cardiff... or Swansea for that matter;

4             trys to 2 the significant ratio in Rome and though Italy held the advantage, 16-12, into the opening stages of the final 40 through a pair of penalties by 10, Tommie Allan, and touch downs by 12, Luca Morisi, and flyer Edoardo Padovani against groundings by Ireland lock, Quin Roux, and flyer Jacob Stockdale; visitors managed a brace of converted groundings in the second stanza to claim the bonus-point and the record, 26-16
