2024 Six Nations set to end in a drama filled final day

The 2024 Six Nations will come to an end tomorrow with all three games filled into ‘Super Saturday’.

The chase for the title is still on as both Ireland and England can still technically claim top spot. At the other end of the table Wales and Italy will go head to head in a battle to avoid bottom spot, and in Wales’ case the dreaded ‘Wooden Spoon’.

14:15 – Wales vs Italy (Principality Stadium)

Historically Italy have been the team that everyone expects to finish last in the Six Nations and are the usual recipients of the Wooden Spoon. However, this year things have gone differently for the Azzurri. After four games Italy have lost against England and Ireland, but claimed a dramatic draw against France in Lille and beat Scotland at home in Rome.

With Wales yet to win a game this Championship Italy are eyeing up their best ever finish in the Six Nations. But a trip to the Principality Stadium in Cardiff will be a challenging test for the Italians.

On the other side there is Warren Gatland’s Welsh squad a side that in the past have won four Six Nations titles under his command. However, this weekend could decide whether this young squad could end their Six Nations campaign in dead last with zero wins.

Wales will also lose a legend this weekend as George North announced his retirement from international rugby after this weekend. An extra incentive for The Dragons to deliver a result at home for one last game with one of their most influential players.

16:45 – Ireland vs Scotland (Aviva Stadium)

A win would be enough for Ireland to claim back to back Six Nations titles as Andy Farrells men look to bounce back after a defeat to England last week. After a disappointing World Cup last year Ireland will welcome another Six Nations title to their trophy cabinet, despite not being able to claim a Grand Slam.

Last year Ireland demolished Scotland at the Aviva Stadium on the final weekend of the championship, something new Ireland captain Peter O’Mahoney will be looking to replicate this weekend.

Scotland are chasing a potential second place in the Six Nations if they can beat Ireland. Scotland have only won two games so far this Championship against England and Wales. A win against Ireland would end the 2024 Six Nations on a positive note for Gregor Townsends squad.

20:00 – France vs England (Groupama Stadium)

France currently lie fourth in the Six Nations, joint on points with Scotland, a final game win against England at home could also propel the French up into second place.

Les Bleus have beaten Scotland and Wales this tournament, but without Anthoine Dupont the French have struggled for the first time since 2019.

England were completely written off before the start of the Six Nations. However, going into the final game of the tournament Steve Borthwick could be on his way to leading his squad to a Six Nations title.

After a momentum building win against Ireland last week, and two other wins against Wales and Italy, England could claim their first Six Nations title under Borthwick depending on if Ireland lose to Scotland.
