Wales and Ireland kicked off this weekend’s Six Nations action in Cardiff last night and Wales turned on the style after back-to-back defeats to see off Ireland 22-9. Winger George North was the hero for Wales scoring a brace of tries, one in each half, and the returning Jamie Roberts put the icing on the cake with a third try minutes before the final hooter.
Wales performance was made even more impressive by the fact they denying Ireland a single try and the defeat also put an end to Ireland aspirations of a potential Six Nations Championship decider in Dublin next weekend. England are now on the verge of winning back-to-back Six Nations Championship for the second time since the tournament began proper in 2000 and if they defeat Scotland today at Twickenham they will achieve this as well as matching New Zealand’s 18 competitive match wins in a row world record.
