February sees the start of another Six Nations tournament. When the world’s best rugby teams face off against each other in what is sure to be some of the most exciting matches of the year. Current raining champs England will be defending their title but our Irish Boys are playing to win on Paddy’s day! Get ready for 2 months of rugby madness!
Ireland’s first match of the tournament will be on 3rd February when then face France. France is currently only the 9th best team in the world with our boys coming in at number 3, this should be a win for us! Of course Scotland also faces some tough competition against France at Murrayfield on the 11th of the month.
The match of the season for all Scottish rugby fans will be on the 24th February when England step on to the Murray-Field (see what we did there). The tension will be felt across the whole of Edinburgh as hopefully it won’t all end in tears. Not only is the champion’s title at stake so too is the mighty Calcutta Cup. England has held the cup for 9 years and Scotland will be keen not to let it be a decade.
The Centenary Quaich is also at stake on the 10th March as the Scotland team fly to Dublin to play Ireland at home. Scotland took the Quaich back from the boys in green only last year so all eyes will be on the prize for 2018.
Not forgetting our international friends in Italy who will be playing Ireland on the 10th of February and Scotland on the 17th of March.
Here at Biddy Mulligans will be screening all 6 Nations matches followed by live music to help you celebrate on commiserate.
