France Vs England

James: “England lost a crucial game to Scotland last week and it might have hurt their chances at winning the tournament. They will face France this week and are likely to win, but what they will need to do is win big against the French. Winner: England.”

Aaron: “France took advantage of a favorable match-up against Italy to get the win, but now they face and angry English side. England will look to right the ship after dropping one to the Scots. Even though they were exposed by the Scottish attack the English are still one of the most talented sides in the tournament. I expect they’re going to be looking for some much needed redemption, and playing against the old rivals France, should bring their blood to a boil. Owen Farrell had a great game, despite the losing effort, and should continue his solid form again. England looking for vengeance should win this match. Advantage: England”

 

Ireland Vs Scotland

James: “Ireland won convincingly against Wales and Scotland had a great victory against England. This clash will very likely decide who wins the tournament though Ireland is ahead by a good margin in the points side of things. Winner: Ireland.”

Aaron: “CALCUTTA CUP WINNERS! Holy smokes! I did not see that coming. Scotland took it right to the English defense. Huw Jones with a brace of tries and playing some amazing rugby. The Scottish offense has found their stride and are becoming very threatening. But now they face an undefeated Irish team. Ireland’s offense looked every bit as lethal as it has all year, but their defense looked vulnerable. Jonny Sexton also missed a few kicks that could’ve sealed the deal against Wales earlier in the match. Despite all that, Ireland took the victory over Wales. For the first time this competition I’m going with the upset. A surging Scotland might surprise the Irish. Advantage: Scotland”

 

Wales Vs Italy

James: “Wales had a good game against Ireland, but the Irish proved to be too much for them. However, they are going up against the worst squad in the tournament in Italy, who lost by 17 to France and should be able to rebound. Winner: Wales.”

Aaron: “There is no doubt in my mind that Wales will win this match by at least 3 tries. The Italian defense has been terrible all competition continuously giving up try after try. Wales played and incredible game against Ireland and almost took the match. A late try by Ireland sealed their fate; the score did not reflect how close this game was. Wales are a much better team than Italy and have also been able to score consistently. Leigh Halfpenny should have a good game from the boot as well. The Italians will try to prevent themselves from going winless, but I don’t think its gonna happen this year. Advantage: Wales”
