6 Nations Rugby

Posted: February 10, 2011 by Jake A in Uncategorized

While we were all busy watching the Superbowl, Europe is currently turned into an event of similar scope. The RBS Six Nations Rugby Tournament is underway. The tournament includes original members England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland as well as old steady France and relative newcomer Italy. These 6 countries will vie bragging rights in European rugby.As the second largest sport in the area, these grudge matches are spectacles of great athletic achievement  and carry great weight, due to the intense rivalry among the countries. Entire population’s moral hang in the balance of each match, hoping for victory over their European neighbors.  and  After joining the Marist College rugby team, I’ve come to love this sport. I even attended a Wales vs. Italy match last March while in England. This tournament is a huge event over there, when all is said and done, all the match will have drawn more viewers than the Superbowl. Here in America, we really don’t have much perspective on great sports events such as this and I’m glad I was able to discover it and get involved in that world.
