2017 Six Nations: Best of social media from Round Two

2017 Six Nations: Best of social media from Round Two

Round two of the 2017 Six Nations brought three very differnt games of rugby. Italy were embarrassed by the Irish in Rome, France snatched victory against Scotland in a scrappy game in Paris and England continued their unbeaten run after a dramatic night in Cardiff.

But aside from the action off the pitch, let’s take a look at how social media reacted to round 2.

Firstly, here’s what the table looks like after the second weekend of the tournament.

DRAMA IN CARDIFF

There were a few surprise supporters coming from the Premier League.

Former England back row Nick Easter gave some insight into the dramatic game in Cardiff.

And here is Will Greenwood’s personal weekly Twitter round up.

But who knew Chris Robshaw was good friends with Jack Whitehall?

And Wales legend Mike Phillps was spotted in the crowd in Cardiff.

Wallaby legend Matt Giteau wasn’t on England’s side…

TUNNEL CAM

It’s hard to explain this one, but it may have something to do with TV show The Jump.

Wales number eight Ross Moriarty was grabbing some unusual attention…

Former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan recognised the influence of Eddie Jones.

And here is some cheeky bare chest action from James Haskell and Nathan Hughes.

Now that was a proper test match!

UNFORTUNATE FINN

But the French were gracious in victory.

 

SERGEANT STANDER

Ireland back row CJ Stander became the first forward in history to score a Six Nations hat trick.
