England for the Win?

SixNationsThe Six Nations Rugby tournament comprises Ireland, France, Italy, Scotland,  Wales and England. England is leading, with Ireland second, France third, Wales fourth, Scotland fifth and Italy in sixth place. England can’t be defeated, however, whether or not they get the Grand Slam we will just have to wait and see!

The Grand Slam is when you win all the games you play. England won the Grand Slam last year. This year they are playing Ireland, who are second in the league, in their last match of the league! It will be a tough match though!

Italy is at the bottom of the table, having won no games.

We hope England gets the Grand Slam and we will definitely be watching the match on Saturday at 5:00pm!
