Relive all the trials of the Six Nations tournament match

It was a match that looked like a semi-final between the English and Irish at Twickenham on Saturday 12 March towards the fourth day of the Six Nations tournament.

Andy Farrell’s men emerged victorious after a fierce battle marked by four attempts.

6th minute: James Lowe hits the entrance (0-8)

In numerical superiority since the fourth minute of play, and a red card over Charlie Ewells, the Irish dominated at the start of the meeting. Over several periods of play, he went all over the field and it was New Zealand-born winger James Lowe who made his first attempt of the match at the end of the line. After passing the first penalty, Jonathan Sexton missed the conversion.

37th: Ireland break before half-time (6-15)

Since James Lowe’s first try, XV de la Rose has been fighting back. Two penalties from his striker, Marcus Smith, allow him to stay in touch, two short points behind the Irish. However, the Greens only need one opportunity to advance. Three minutes before the break, after some period of turbulence, he made a fresh attempt through Hugo Keenan. This time, Jonathan Sexton’s transformation passes between the poles and Ireland stands up a bit more as he returns to the locker room.

72nd: Irish widens the gap (15-25)

Returning to a tie (15–15) thanks to a restrictive but effective game, the British cast doubt on the Irish. More precisely, in the game of “ping-pong rugby”, the latter nevertheless manages to settle in the English camp. After a long streak of possession, third-row substitute Jack Conan made his third attempt of the match, which was K.-O.
