Impressive match by Ireland at Six Nations tournament
Ireland's rugby players have also won their second match in the Six Nations competition. The Irish were 32-19 too strong for France in Dublin, which had been unbeaten for fourteen games. Especially in the beginning, both teams showed their class. After a first half of excellent rugby at a furious pace, the home team, the number one in the world rankings, went into the dressing room with a 22-16 lead. In the second half, the pace was a bit slower, but Ireland still had the better of the game. Garry Ringrose gave his team a bonus point by making the fourth try, after which title holder France could no longer turn the tide. It was Ireland's first victory over France since November 2021, after three consecutive defeats.
Scotland lashes out
Later in the evening, Scotland was a size too big for Wales. The Scots won 35-7 at home and are now at the top of the six-nation tournament alongside Ireland. Two penalties from Russell and a converted try from George Turner meant the hosts took a swift 13-0 lead, with Wales captain Ken Owens putting his side back in the game with a try. After the break, Scotland's Kyle Steyn crossed the whitewash twice, while Blair Kinghorn's excellent score and Matt Fagerson's late try meant Warren Gatland suffered his first-ever defeat to Scotland as Wales head coach.
