6 Nations Tournament: ranking, results and complete program for the 3rd day

Third day of the 6 Nations Tournament this weekend with the French XV facing Italy.

After a short week of break and above all preparation, the teams from the 6 Nations Tournament are back this weekend with first of all Ireland facing Wales in the clash of this day. The Irish, in the event of a victory, will be able to approach their future trip to England in two weeks with more serenity. The English, precisely, will have to face a very good Scottish team, winner of Wales and not far from the feat against the XV of France a fortnight ago.

For the French XV, meet on Sunday at 4 p.m. near Lille to face Italy. Faced with the opponent, in theory, the weakest, Fabien Galthié's gang will have to impose their game and do their best to try to reassure and believe again in the final victory in this 6 Nations Tournament. But be careful, Italy is still capable of making shots and the Italians did not go far against England on the first day and did not sink against Ireland on the last day...

They are Latin, coached by Quesada who knows us well and with a lot of players from the French championship. They will play with courage and will bring out their best rugby" explained Fabien Galthié at a press conference.
