Round 5 Super Saturday Six Nations

It is time for the final weekend of the Six Nations Cup! Although Ireland already won overall with a match to spare, Super Saturday is going to be a tense thriller. That is because the England team has the chance to stop Ireland winning every match to get the grand slam.

Of course, considering the form they are in, it seems likely that Ireland will manage to win their final match. Especially considering that the UK already lost to France and Scotland. However, England does have the home advantage: so you never know!

Who Competes in the Six Nations Championship?

The Five Nations Championship was actually the successor to the Home Nations Championship, which ran from 1883 to 1939. At that time the name was changed to the Five Nations because of the introduction of France into the competition. Since then, Italy has also been added to the competition (in the year 2000) bringing the teams in the competition to a total of six:

England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, and Wales.

For Sponsorship reasons, the tournament is actually currently called the NatWest 6 Nations.

When is the NatWest 6 Nations?

The 2019 Six Nations Championship takes place from Saturday, February 1st until Saturday, March 17th. Fans of Rugby Union are treated to 5 action-packed weekends of international Rugby!

The final Saturday of the competition is known as ‘Super Saturday’: so known because all three of the final matches happen on the same day!

Wales vs Scotland: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and team news for Six Nations

WALES and Scotland will open the 2018 Six Nations at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium in a game that is expected to be played on a knife-edge.

Scotland have been backed by many to be the dark horses of the Six Nations, outsiders for the title at 11/1 despite a nine-try win over Australia and very nearly turning over New Zealand in the autumn.

Wales meanwhile are missing at least 10 players through injury and former Lions coach Warren Gatland will have to work all his magic to extract maximum performance out of the line-up.

The Scots ended a decade-long losing streak against the Welsh at Murrayfield last year, winning 29-13, but you have to go back to 2002 to find their last victory in Cardiff.

Wales vs Scotland kick-off time

The 2018 tournament will get underway on Saturday February 3 when Wales kick off against Scotland in Cardiff at 2.15pm.

Wales vs Scotland TV channel

The Six Nations coverage for 2018 has been split between ITV and the BBC once again.

BBC One has the first match of the tournament, with coverage of Wales vs Scotland presented by John Inverdale starting at 1.45pm.

Wales vs Scotland live stream

Since both ITV and BBC are terrestrial and free-to-air, every game of the Six Nations will be shown live online for free.

Viewers simply need to hold a valid TV licence and may be required to sign in on the BBC website to watch Wales vs Scotland.

Te’o back for England in Six Nations rugby

Te’o back for England in Six Nations rugby

Ahead of their opening Six Nations rugby match against Italy in Rome, centre Ben Te’o will play his first England Test for almost a year.

Centre Ben Te’o will play his first England Test for almost a year after overcoming injury to be included in the team to face Italy in Rome in their opening Six Nations rugby match.

After featuring for the British and Irish Lions last year in New Zealand, the hard-running Te’o played only a handful of games for his club Worcester before suffering a bad ankle injury in October that required the insertion of a plate.

After extensive rehabilitation, the former NRL player has done enough in the England camp to impress coach Eddie Jones, and will partner Owen Farrell on Sunday, winning his ninth England cap but making only his second start.

In the absence of injured duo Billy Vunipola and Nathan Hughes, Sam Simmonds wins a fourth cap at No.8, with Chris Robshaw and Courtney Lawes either side of him in the back row.

Mike Brown retains the fullback jersey, with Anthony Watson and Jonny May on the wings.

Uncapped prop Alec Hepburn has been named among the replacements, as is winger Jack Nowell, who has recovered quicker than expected from an ankle injury, and usual first-choice centre Jonathan Joseph.

England have won all 23 meetings with Italy, averaging 40 points a game, although they had a scare at Twickenham last year when they struggled to deal with the Italians’ surprise “no ruck” tactics before coming from behind at halftime to emerge 36-15 winners.

England, who have lost only one of 23 games under Eddie Jones, are seeking to become the first team to win the Five/Six Nations championship three years in a row.

ENGLAND:

15 Mike Brown; 14 Anthony Watson; 13 Ben Te’o; 12 Owen Farrell; 11 Jonny May; 10 George Ford; 9 Ben Youngs; 1 Mako Vunipola; 2 Dylan Hartley (capt); 3 Dan Cole; 4 Joe Launchbury; 5 Maro Itoje; 6 Courtney Lawes; 7 Chris Robshaw; 8 Sam Simmonds.

Res: 16 Jamie George; 17 Alec Hepburn; 18 Harry Williams; 19 George Kruis; 20 Sam Underhill; 21 Danny Care; 22 Jonathan Joseph; 23 Jack Nowell.

Sam Simmonds to make Six Nations debut for England vs Italy

Exeter Chiefs No 8 Sam Simmonds will make his Six Nations debut for England against Italy in Rome on Sunday, having been named to start by Eddie Jones.

Simmonds made his England debut against Argentina in November and with Billy Vunipola (arm), Nathan Hughes (knee) and Zach Mercer (illness) all ruled out through injury – plus James Haskell’s suspension – the 23-year-old has been named to start at No 8 at the Stadio Olimpico.

Elsewhere, Bath centre Jonathan Joseph must make do with a place on the bench as Worcester Warriors centre Ben Te’o starts at outside centre, alongside playmaker Owen Farrell in midfield.

 

Simmonds’ Exeter Chief team-mate Jack Nowell has been named on the replacements bench having made a ‘miracle recovery’ from an ankle injury.

Nowell had initially been expected to be out for three to four weeks but will provide cover to a back-three of Mike Brown, Anthony Watson and Jonny May.

Another Chiefs player in loosehead Alec Hepburn is in line to make his England debut, having been named among the replacements.

Having been dropped in the autumn, Saracens forward George Kruis returns to the squad as second row cover on the bench, with Courtney Lawes starting on the blindside and Joe Launchbury and Maro Itoje the starting locks.

Leicester Tigers duo Dan Cole and Ben Youngs have been named to start, holding off the challenges of Harry Williams and Danny Care, both of whom are on the bench.

England team to play Italy: 15 Mike Brown, 14 Anthony Watson, 13 Ben Te’o, 12 Owen Farrell, 11 Jonny May, 10 George Ford, 9 Ben Youngs; 1 Mako Vunipola, 2 Dylan Hartley, 3 Dan Cole, 4 Joe Launchbury, 5 Maro Itoje, 6 Courtney Lawes, 7 Chris Robshaw, 8 Sam Simmonds.

Replacements: 16 Jamie George, 17 Alec Hepburn, 18 Harry Williams, 19 George Kruis, 20 Sam Underhill, 21 Danny Care, 22 Jonathan Joseph, 23 Jack Nowell.

Everything you need to know as England, Ireland, France, Italy, Scotland and Wales prepare for action

ENGLAND will be looking to become the first nation to win three successive Six Nations titles.

The 2016 and 2017 champions will be looking to defend their title when the action kicks off in February.

What is the Six Nations?

This is an annual international rugby union competition that consists of just six sides.

England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales will all play each other once.

If a team wins all of its games, then they are said to have won a ‘Grand Slam’.

 

When does it start and what TV channel can I watch them on?

The Six Nations action will get underway on Saturday, February 3.

Wales will take on Scotland to kick-off proceedings in Cardiff.

And all of the matches will be available for you to watch live on either the BBC or ITV.

Are there any rule changes for the 2018 Six Nations?

The 2017 Six Nations introduced the bonus-point system and it WILL be used again this year.

This means that it is four points for a win and a team will secure an extra point if they score four tries or more.

If a team loses by less than seven points then they will secure a losing bonus-point.

A draw is worth two points and a Grand Slam is worth three points.

Live: Australia vs England, Rugby League World Cup final in Brisbane

Live: Australia vs England, Rugby League World Cup final in Brisbane

AUSTRALIA will be hoping its Rugby League World Cup comes full circle when it plays England in the final at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night.

The Kangaroos defeated the Poms 18-4 in the tournament opener and coasted through its next four matches to reach the decider, conceding just 16 points along the way. There are rumours tonight could see the final appearance of Billy Slater and perhaps even Cameron Smith in the green and gold, and a win would provide them with the perfect send-off if they decide to hang up the boots.

England scraped through its semi-final against Tonga to book its place against the home side tonight. Wayne Bennett’s men won 20-18 after Andrew Fifita’s try in the dying seconds was disallowed because of a knock-on and they will be hoping fortune favours them again against the Kangaroos.

Kick-off is scheduled for 8pm AEDT.

 

 

Earlier former Australian forward Gorden Tallis said he didn’t think the home side’s pack could match it with England’s big men if Sam Burgess and James Graham fired, but ex-NSW prop Mark Geyer disagreed.

“No, I don’t think they (England) have (the edge in the forwards),” Geyer told Channel Seven.

“Australia’s strength has been their forwards, in particular (David) Klemmer and (Aaron) Woods and then on comes (Reagan) Campbell-Gillard and (Jordan) McLean, with (Cameron) Smith guiding the ship.

“Their forward back has been immense. Sam Burgess tonight as captain will lead from the front and will be inspiring tonight.”

The stage is set for stand-in England skipper Sam Burgess to dominate an inferior Kangaroos pack and inspire a boilover in the Rugby League World Cup final in Brisbane, Gorden Tallis says.

Former Kangaroos enforcer Tallis has rated Burgess as the greatest British forward to play in the NRL and believes the South Sydney talisman can prove the difference against overwhelming favourite Australia at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday.

England appeared to cop a huge blow before its first Cup final appearance in 22 years when captain Sean O’Loughlin ruled himself out with a quad injury on match eve.

But Tallis believes Burgess can still provide enough firepower to blow away what he considered a lesser Kangaroos pack.

“He is one of the best forwards I have ever seen,” Tallis told a Rugby League World Cup final function in Brisbane.

“He is the best English forward that has come out here to play, I think he is absolutely outstanding.”

Tallis believes Burgess could pack a one-two punch with England forward James Graham that could give the Australian forwards nightmares.

“If he and James Graham can play the way they do in the NRL, if they can play with that intimidation and ferocity I don’t think the Australian forward pack are as good as those guys,” Tallis said.

“Australia have a great back-row but if those two guys can light it up and play to the best of their ability I think they will give the Australian pack a real nightmare.”

Back-rower Burgess will replace O’Loughlin at lock, with Ben Currie starting on the edge and utility Jonny Lomax added to the bench.

O’Loughlin is the second key forward coach Wayne Bennett has lost in a week, following star hooker Josh Hodgson’s torn ACL in the semi-final win over Tonga.

England has not won a series involving Australia since 1972. And it last beat Australia at a World Cup in 1995.

But Burgess was daring to dream, even contemplating who would lift the trophy for England if Australia — undefeated at a World Cup since 2008 — was somehow denied.

“I don’t think it gets much better than the World Cup final and it will be a special moment, although it’s kind of bittersweet if I’m honest,” said Burgess who led England in last year’s Four Nations tournament.

“Sean has been captain the whole tournament and he’ll lift the trophy if we get to that situation.”
