Ireland RBS 6 Nations Champions 2015 - New 2 Disc DVD Set
The RBS 6 Nations Championship 2015 was not poised to go down as one of the more "vintage" Championships, though there was great anticipation as the action headed into its final day. What transpired was something that nobody could foresee: "The Greatest Day in Rugby's Greatest Championship."
Only point's difference separated Ireland, England and Wales on the morning of Saturday 21st March, with staggered kick-offs adding to the drama, as fans could watch each team set a target for the next.
Wales set the tone with an incredible second-half performance in Rome, winning by 41 points (Italy 20 Wales 61) and setting a marker for Ireland and England.
Next, Ireland played with an ambitious attacking style not seen previously during the campaign, and racked up their biggest away win in Championship history (Scotland 10 Ireland 40) a 30 point margin thereby setting England the target of a 27-point margin.
All eyes turned to Twickenham for a nail-biting finale. England had no choice but all-out attack and they delivered, building up an emphatic tally of 55 points to the French haul of 35. In a bizarre and exhilarating end game, the French ultimately left a desperate England just shy of their target.
'Super Saturday' lived up to its billing with a record 221 points and 27 tries scored.
