Italy vs Wales, Six Nations 2019: Kick

Warren Gatland’s side will feel luck is on their side. Two George North tries in the second-half courtesy of spectacular French errors bailed them out of what was a harrowing start to their campaign. Walking down the tunnel at the’Stade de France at half-time the scoreline was 16-0 to the hosts.

Italy will also feel slightly emboldened by their second-half performance, running in three late tries in the last 10 minutes at Murrayfield, albeit against a Scotland side already confident of victory and a bonus point.

Ireland got their defence of the Six Nations Championship back on track by grinding out a result at Murrayfield against Scotland to kick off the weekend’s action.

Joe Schmidt’s troops were looking to bounce back from a 20-32 loss to England at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin last week while Scotland were riding high after a bonus point win over Italy.

As always the Murrayfield crowd was in fine voice and treated us to a spine-tingling rendition of the Flower of Scotland.

Manu Tuilagi’s England return highlights one big concern for Six Nations chiefs

There was one incident though involving the Leicester centre which sat uneasily ‘ a clattering charge into a ruck which sent Jacob Stockdale flying.

He was not sanctioned at the time by referee Jerome Garces or cited afterwards, but the contact on an unprepared Stockdale led to a whiplash-type movement of the Ireland wing’s head. Stockdale was unhurt, but more through luck than judgment.

In this era of player welfare scrutiny, there has been plenty of attention on aerial challenges and tackle height, but the ruck has essentially been left to become a deregulated wild west.
