Fascinating 2017 Six Nations comes to a close - Final Weekend Highlights Wrap

Things didn’t go entirely to script on the final weekend of the 2017 Six Nations Championship, as Ireland upset England to block their Grand Slam, France and Wales played 100 minutes of rugby, and Italy failed to score a point against Scotland. Here are your highlights recaps.

It was a fascinating final weekend of the tournament, as positions on the final table shuffled around and while England were unable to get their Grand Slam and world record for successive wins, they did retain the Six Nations trophy.

Scotland finished in fourth position on the table after playing some thrilling rugby at times, as they bid farewell to coach Vern Cotter.

France will be happy to have secured the late win in Paris, and finish third on the table, while Wales find themselves in fifth position, after a mixed tournament.

Ireland finished second, although themselves, France and Scotland all ended on 14 points. However, Ireland had a better points difference overall.

STATS CHECK:

Camille Lopez of France ended the tournament as top points scorer, kicking 67 points with the boot, followed on 63 by Owen Farrell. Lopez also ended the tournament with a high kick percentage of 89.29%, with 25 succesful from 28 attempts.

Ireland were top in that regard though, as Jonny Sexton had a 100% record from the tee with 8 from 8 kicks, while Paddy Jackson got 14 from 15, for a 93.33% return.

Eight players scored 3 tries each, so they share that honour, although Ireland’s Craig Gilroy did it in just 32 minutes, compared with Wales’ Liam Williams who got his three tries in 400 minutes.

CJ Stander has the most carries overall, with 104, while England’s Joe Launchbury made the most tackles of the tournament, with 85 made and just four missed.
