Six Nations Round 3 Preview

Round Three of the 2023 Six Nations is around the corner and the spotless records of Ireland and Scotland remain in-tact.

Wales and England have been less-than-impressive and their meeting in Cardiff will be backed by a thunderous crowd and high expectations. With just days to go until the Round Three kick-off, let’s take a look at what we can expect.

Can Scotland Keep Their Momentum?

The previous round was capped-off by Duhan van der Merwe’s stunning 55-yard try against England - a moment that is sure to be played on highlight reels for decades to come. Scotland are hoping to achieve back-to-back away fixtures against France for the first time in 95 years, whilst the French are looking to impose themselves on the international rugby scene ahead of them hosting the World Cup. 

Gregor Townsend’s side look formidable and are among the favorites to go deep into the Six Nations and the World Cup. Les Blues are the reigning Champions, but the Scots find themselves in red-hot form with players like Matt Fagerson and the aforementioned Van Der Merwe in imperious form.

Stunning Ireland 

Ireland are ranked as the world’s best side for good reason, though the possible absence of captain Johnny Sexton could derail their confidence somewhat. 

Andy Farrell’s side head to Rome to take on a rejuvenated Italy side whose backline is seemingly made out of cast-iron. The Azzurri are blessed with a wealth of talent, with Ange Cupozzo stealing the spotlight for his God-given talent. 

Ireland’s free-flowing forward line provides a tantalizing opposite to Italy’s impressive backs, and the game’s Rome location couldn't be more fitting for the gladiatorial  matchup. 

Can England Get Back To Their Best?

England need to put their stuttering start to the 2023 Six Nations behind them if they wish to dispatch Wales in Cardiff. 

Steve Borthwick is set to cement his rugby philosophy into his players whilst Wales are most likely still raw from their previous two defeats at the tournament. The Principality Stadium will certainly be raucous nonetheless with thousands of Welsh fans cheering on their ailing men against their Home Nations rivals. If there was ever a time for Wales to stop the rot, this is it. 

The two rugby giants aren’t quite as good as they used to be, but seeing what changes the respective managers make will be fascinating. With just six months to go to the World Cup, both sides need to start bringing their A-game if they wish to be taken seriously.
