Six Nations 2008 Review

Six Nations 2008 Review

As the 2009 Six Nations kicks off this weekend, we thought it would be a good time to squeeze in a nice review of last years tournament.

Wales came out trumps as they dominated winning five out of five matches, thriving under their new coaching team of Warren Gatland, Shaun Edwards and Rob Howley.

They won the Grand Slam with a resounding four-point margin from England and France, with a disappointing Ireland finishing fourth, ahead of Scotland and Italy.

Over the course of five weekends throughout February and March, 30 games of international rugby were played in six top European cities, with 595 points scored, all of it watched by tens of thousands of travelling fans, and a television audience in the millions.

This extensive review takes us through all the highs and lows of a fantastic tournament in which we saw a little man named Shane take centre stage, burning up the turf on his way to becoming the IRB Player of the Year for 2008.
