The 2020 resumes this weekend with round 3 of an already thrilling tournament. Scotland visit the eternal city to take on a struggling Italian team. If there is to be a shock in this years competition then this could be the day. On the opening day the “azzuri” got trounced in Cardiff; however, they slightly redeemed themselves with a losing but stirring performance in Paris on round 2. A passionate crowd in Rome should raise Italian hearts. The Scots had a lost their opening game in Dublin. They did however come out of that game with many positives. Round two’s loss in Edinbrough against England in dreadful weather conditions means that that nothing less than a comprehensive victory this Saturday is needed. It should be a close game with the Scots just about edging it. The second game on Saturday features Wales hosting a resurgent French team. The competition always seems that much more enjoyable with the French playing well. The Welsh were extremely disappointed with the loss in Dublin last time out and will look the make amends. It should be another close game with the French just about doing enough to keep their grand slam hopes above water. Sunday morning sees Ireland cross the Irish sea for the visit to “Twickers”. It will be a tough one for the Irish. A victory will keep their own grand slam on track. A win, and with a game against Italy to come in round 4, could see a potential championship/Grand Slam game against France on the final day. We can but keep our fingers crossed. Come done to Kieran’s for the usual craic.
