Rugby Union 6 Nations 2021

To demonstrate how close the tournament actually was.
If you discount the Italian games, there were 10 other matches.
8 of those earned loosing bonus points.*

If any one of those matches had gone the other way, the table might have looked quite different.**

* Eng v Wal, Eng v Ire were non bonus point games.

** especially the Sco v Wal game.
If ifs and ands,
Were pots and pans,
And paper was never invented,
We'd shit in the grass.
And wipe our arrse,
And walk away contented.
 
Fun Monday Factoid!

So the 6 Nations finished on Friday but did you know that apart from Ireland vs France there was at least one player in EVERY game who has played in competitive matches for London Scottish
A total of 1339 contributed minutes and 22 contributed points.

Did someone bet you that you couldn’t get “London Scottish” and “competitive” into the same sentence?

That is a tough call. Six thoroughly deserving candidates.

However, I have cast my vote.

Thanks for posting the link, @johnboyzzz
Moi aussi and to me it was a toss up between Henshaw and Watson with Watson getting the call - and not just because he played for Scotland. He has been absolutely superb during this 6N and deserves this vote, and a place in the Lions.

He made 321 metres, 67 carries - the second most any player in the tournament - broke 14 tackles, and contributed heavily on the defensive side with 55 tackles - five of which were dominant and none missed.

Russell not following the Fergerson route and denying anything.
Reduced from 6 to 3weeks.

"The three-man disciplinary committee said they gave credit for "Mr Russell's prompt acceptance that his actions had constituted foul play and been worthy of a red card, his disciplinary record, his attitude to the disciplinary process before and during the hearing, and his clear remorse"."

Not often one hears Finn Russell and remorse in the same sentence! :)

Mish gets player of the Championship
Well deserved and should book him into a Lion's seat.

Mind you, with Gatland choosing he might be left out for an English player! ;)
