England sinks France while Wales heads for slums



Maro Itoje’s second half attempt defeated England 23-20 in a fast, enterprising rugby-filled Six Nations Championship match in Twickenham that left the championship open.

However, Wales has maintained pole position to win the title and win the Grand Slam after defeating Italy 48-7 in seven demolition operations on Saturday.

In Twickenham, England was four points behind full-time, but Itoje was bundled from the mall and awarded a try by the TMO after the referee decided that he was the first to be held.

The first half was a wonderful exhibition of skilled rugby, where both sides promised to run the ball and stay alive.

France started scoring two minutes later in Antoine Dupont’s attempt, but England counterattacked in the fourth of Anthony Watson’s championship.

Then they cleared with Owen Farrell’s penalty before France made a great attempt for Damian Penou to lead 17-13 in the break.

The second half was a tense situation with a penalty of 4 points in the last 25 minutes.

But just as France seemed ready to win its first championship in Twickenham since 2005, England paved the way and Farrell had a nasty conversion. ..

The result was ideal for Wales. Wales is currently up 19 points and will be the Grand Slam champion if France wins in Paris next week, regardless of whether France will play a reorganized match against Scotland.

France and the United Kingdom have 10 points, Ireland visiting Scotland on Sunday has 7 points, and Scotland has 5 points.

The Welsh side of New Zealander Wayne Pivac had just sealed the triple crown against England and did a short job at Stadio Olimpico, suffering from errors.

With two attempts from Josh Adams, Taulupe Faletau, and prostitute Ken Owens, the bonus points ended within 30 minutes.

George North, substitutes Callum Sheedy and Louis Rees-Zamitt were scattered in the second half to exacerbate the misery of the host, and Australian-born Monty Ioane sought to provide their only comfort.

Reese Zamit’s 70-meter passcut effort was the fifth touchdown in Gloucester Speedster’s eighth test.

Italy, which has lost 31 times in a row at the Six Nations, has lost 187 points in the previous four defeats and is in a familiar position rooted at the bottom of the table with zero points.
