2017 Six Nations: The Best of Social Media from Round One

Round one of the 2017 Six Nations lived up to all expectations. It had everything from big upsets to stunning tries, funny celebrations… and even bonus points. However, it was Scotland’s heroic win against Ireland grabbed most of the headlines. 

Highlights: Scotland vs Ireland | England vs France | Italy vs Wales

But what was social media’s take on the weekend’s action? Here’s a rundown. 

THE BRAVEHEARTS

Scotland recorded only their second opening round win since Italy joined the tournamnet in 2000, and didn’t they enjoy it…

 

 

Former England centre Will Greenwood also celebrated the Scottish tries for another reason…

SALT BAE

Jonathan Davies and Liam Williams produced a ‘Salt Bae’ celebration in Rome.

And referee JP Doyle also fancied a try for himself.

FAN OF THE WEEK

Arsenal midfielder Arron Ramsey’s other half Colleen was clearly delighted with the win against Italy, but maybe not Chelsea.
