Hitchcock and rugby

On October 16, 1999 Spain played his last game in a world of rugby The Lions said goodbye watering their throats with whiskey in Murrayfield, Edinburgh. Since then, playing rugby in Spain has been, as he maintains Javier Bardem (international junior with the XV del León), such as “being a bullfighter in Japan“. Well, it turns out that we already have a return date to a World Cup, in this case in France. It will be on September 9, 2023 in Aquitaine, in the beautiful Bordeaux. And we will measure ourselves Ireland. We’ll trade the whiskey for a delicious Château Lafite Rothschildalthough a third half is approaching at the blow of Guinness and ‘Sweet Caroline’ with those of the Emerald Isle. Spain returns to the World Cup after beating Portugal in Madrid and tame Romanians and Russians earlier.

With that said, let’s get back to our usual business in this column: the 6 nations. Matchday 4 with England losing to Ireland in Twickenham. In rugby that doesn’t work Helen Herrera that it is better to play with one less. The English lost the giant ewels two minutes later for a direct red card and they rowed against the current for 78 minutes, reaching a tie at game time. But they fell apart in the final moments, fitting two trials. The party left two readings. Never bet against England when things get complicated because that’s where he brings out his best version. The other, Ireland is not reliable even if they can win the tournament. It drew attention how the English Ellis Genge I made a suit for the unfathomable Tadhg Furlong in scrum

Fate has it that those in green, after winning in Twickers to the children of his graceful majesty, be in their hands to win the 6 Nations. Because the English close the tournament in Paris on Saturday (21:00) before France. If they win and Ireland does the same in Dublin with Scotland, those in green will be champions. But if France wins, tournament and Grand Slam for the blue.

England have lost two of the four games they have played. Against Scotland, the Calcutta Cup, and with Ireland. What invites to think that it will fall before a bubbly France. But in this Le Crunch, the classic between the rose and the rooster, England regains prominence as tournament judge and in France, not all that glitters is champagne. Against a predictable Wales he suffered to win a match that he almost lost (9-13). It is true that the deployment of the second curtain of the French line, with the decoys of Danty and internal support Villiére, it is majestic. But also that the partial of the second half in Cardiff (0-3) does not invite optimism against a rocky and indecipherable England.
