Six Nations Championship
Travel by train to the Six Nations Championship
Wales are the defending champions after an impressive Grand Slam in 2019. They carried their good Six Nations form into the World Cup in the autumn and they pushed South Africa all the way in the Semi Final ultimately losing out 19 points to 16. England went one better after beating the All Blacks on the way to the final. South Africa were too strong for England in the final winning 32 to 12 in Yokohama.
The rest of the Six Nations challengers will be hoping to improve their performances and push Wales and England in this campaign. Ireland find themselves in a transitional period after the recent World Cup. So much was expected going into the tournament but unfortunately we underperformed and failed to reach that first Quarter Final berth. We knew in advance of the tournament that Joe Schmidt would be stepping aside after the tournament and looking for continuity the IRFU appointed Andy Farrell who had served as defence coach under Joe.
Andy Farrell will want to try out some of the new and exciting crop of players that are coming through the Irish rugby system and there may be a lot of changes to the team over the coming season as Max Deegan, Caelan Doris, Ronan Kelleher, Tom O' Toole, Billy Burns, Jack O' Donoghue, Will Addison and Ross Byrne all push the senior players for first team players. With a young and vibrant squad and Jonny Sexton confirmed as captain for the 2020 Guinness Six Nations Championships, it promises to be an exciting season ahead...
