Heidelberg. (CPB) After the fourth day of the tournament of six countries of Europe’s major rugby teams, only one team is unbeaten. “Red Dragons” from Wales, Who were counted among the Dalits after an unsuccessful year 2020, are the only lead in the standings with 19 points following a 48: 7 (27: 0) win over Italy in Rome following their stunning performance. If 59-year-old New Josender coach Wayne Pivack’s team also won the Stade de France at St Denis at 9pm on 20 March, Wales would be the Grand Slam winners with five wins from five matches.

At Rome’s deserted Olympic Stadium, 35-year-old captain Alun Vein Jones’s team performed brilliantly and gave no chance to overwhelm the Azzurri. Wells made seven attempts in three quarters with Josh Adams, striker Tulloopa Faletau, Huckler Kane Owens (2), inside runout George North, outside connector Callum Sheedy and Luis Rees-Zamit, which could be considered the tournament’s biggest discoveries in 2021 is. These 35 points played the kickers after five runs and a penalty kick; Dan Biggar scored nine points, substitute Sheedy scored four. Italy managed only one effort through Monty Iyane, which was boosted by Paolo Garci. Italy’s South African coach Franco Smith buried his face in his hands several times.

Ireland were the new runners-up in the table, leading at 10:24 yesterday in Murrayfield, Edinburgh in the 55th minute, but had to concede the incredibly strong Scots’ 24:24 equation in the 74th minute and meet 80 minutes later. His indestructible folk hero was able to thank Jonathan Sexton, who took a penalty kick from 48 meters from the goal three minutes before the end and won the goal 24:27. The Irish made two tries inside Robbie Henshaw and striker Todd Beirne, Sexton collected 17 points and struck out five penalties. Scotland also made three attempts by Finn Russell, Hoov Jones and Hamish Watson, but narrowly missed a penalty.

The “cracker” was a top-class game between defending champions England and Challenger France, which Rose’s team won by a 23:20 (13:17) effort with second-line ace Marco Itoje three minutes before the final whistle. . ) Belongs to. The French were exactly equal at Twickenham, but it could be a mistake that coach Fabian Galthy eliminated all three Front Row strikers in the closing stages. The three newcomers did not find their way well, the crowd lost stability and England cleverly took advantage of small errors in the rules. Two attempts were made for each team and two ropes resulted for both sides. But Owen Farrell scored three penalties, with Matthew Zalibert only two. Kicks decide the championship.
