Last Year

Last year’s title decider was Ireland vs France and it was a belter of a game.  The Irish hopes were kept alive by the Television Match Official (TMO), with the video ref saying a late pass in the game was ruled as a forward pass as Damien Chouly crossed the line.  It wasn’t given and Ireland survived to be crowned champions.

What is a Grand Slam?

To get a ‘Grand Slam’ is to win all of your matches.  Better yet is when a team go on to defend that victory.  Back to back Grand Slams have happened a few times, with the most recent in 1997 and 1998, achieved by the French.  So it is a rare thing, but every year the returning champions come back ready to try to add their names to the records.

Come and enjoy the 6 Nations Rugby at Isaacs!
