All the favorites on the mat except the blues. The day after England’s surprise defeat to Scotland at Twickenham, Ireland lost to Wales (21-16) this Sunday, the day after France’s 16th tournament (4pm on Sunday 14 February).
A capital trip for the Blues, who have not won in Dublin since 2011 on the lawn of an experienced team. His setback in Cardiff is physically marked, with three-quarters of the match conceded after turning into fourteen.
Sexton, released after the shock, is uncertain against France
Peter O’Malley, who withdrew from his third row, was qualified to never let go of Clover XI, who was sent off for a bad move, and the Welsh dominated the first period, finishing 13-6. But with the dress code, XV du Lee, who was very disappointed in 2020, was able to move forward and finally win.
But beyond this defeat, Ireland may have lost one of their executives next week. In addition to his second-inning James Ryan, who came out in the first period, opener Jonathan Sexton (35) had to leave the partners ten minutes from the end.
Clover’s XV suffered a significant loss, especially as his replacement, Billy Burns, passed away completely. When his team won the last chance penalty at the stop, the player misjudged his kick and missed the touch and the final shots to win. Ireland is already under pressure. To the blues to move it in a week.
