Round 4 is proving critical for this year’s Championship and teams are doing all they can to gain points from their scheduled fixtures. Wales, who are the Triple Crown winners, will move one game away from a grand slam if they manage to beat Italy, who will also be fighting for points.
There’s also a big battle that most fanatics will refer to as a derby between the wounded side. England who recently lost to Cardiff and the French side will be looking forward to coming back stronger after a narrow escape - close to losing the Autumn Nations Cup final to Twickenham.
Italy will be hosting Wales as they look forward to collecting points. Wales is in fine form and they hope to continue their fine form. That means, Italy will have to put in more work and perhaps try to hold the six nations, league leaders.
On Sunday, Ireland will travel to Scotland and see if they can cause them a nightmare on their battleground. This would be a mouthwatering clash since only two points drift the two giants. A win for either side would see one climb on top of the other or extend the lead.
That said, let’s have a wrap-up of the upcoming six nations league fixtures and see how you can make the best out of them when placing your bets.
Wales have been in fine form so far and they have clinched the Triple Crown, so they’ll have the fire burning even as they head to Rome to prove they are quite aware they stand a significant chance of clinching a second title in what could have been anticipated in 3 three years.
Wayne will be outlining his squad, but they’ll be no Kieran Hardy, who gave the team a significant boost against England. Kieran suffered a hamstring injury and this is going to be a massive blow to the entire team.
Meanwhile, Williams could be back in the squad while Louis will be fighting for his place with Anthony Watson to become one of the most lethal try-scorers during this campaign.
Eddie Jones is set to name his squad, and he’s hoping to name a squad that will cause France some trouble. David Ribbans will replace Courtney Lawes, who’s with a chest injury. Ribbans looks forward to competing for a place in the team just as George Martin, a 19-year-old proving to have much potential.
Once Eddie Jones has named his squad, France will name a team that will face England. There is a likelihood that Romain Ntamack and Virimi Vakatawa could feature for the first time since this campaign started. While France has never won any tie at Twickenham since 2005, they’ll be hoping to break a record.
Franco Smith will name his team to face Wales and there’s some good news for Italy as Scrum-half Stephen is back in training after missing the defeat against Ireland. Stephen will fight for a place in the team against hungry Cullum Braley and Marcello Violi, who’s on form right now. Danielle Rimpelli will replace Cherif Traore, who’s injured.
Ireland head coach Andy Farrell will give an update on his squad. The 45-year old tactician will invite Jacob Stockdale into the team for the first time since the campaign kicked off. Shane Daly could drop out while seeing Craig Casey hoping to continue with his impressive debut against the Italians.
Sam Skinner, Rufus McLean, and Nick Haining will return to the squad. However, Scotland will miss Richie Gray, who is suffering a head injury. Skinner has had 10 caps, while McLean will be looking forward to making his first debut.
