#RBS6Nations Round 3 round up

Round 3 kicked off in Cardiff on Friday evening as France took on Wales under the stars as a technical hitch left the Principality Stadium’s roof open.  It was an exciting evening as your trusted biscuits got to experience the atmosphere for themselves.  They were also treated to a pre-game warm up in the company of Wales and Lions legend Dafydd James.

Sadly, the game itself was far from a classic, but Wales secured an important win that keeps them as viable contenders for the title.

Yesterday,  Scotland managed to avoid a tenth Six Nations loss, and England’s solid performance against Ireland leaves them chasing that elusive Grand Slam alone…

#RBS6Nations Round 2 round up

Round 2 seemed like quite some time ago now, but it was another great weekend for the #SixNations!

Wales managed to hold off a plucky Scotland side whereas France pipped Ireland to secure second place in the table.  Romance was in the air on Sunday as England thrashed #LoveRivals Italy in Rome, leaving England sitting pretty at the top of the table.

Here are your favourite biscuits with a visual update…

Super Bowl Gold

IMG_2845Super Bowl 50 was certainly not pretty, and the Superman vs Sheriff showdown proved notably lacklustre compared with the hyperbolic build-up. DSC_6037DSC_6031

“Superman” Cam and failed to find the spark that had characterised the Panthers’ regular season, and it was not veteran Peyton Manning’s leadership that won it for the Broncos.  Instead, the Golden Super Bowl had the defense teams calling the shots, with offensive play taking a disappointing back-seat. There were, however, some impressive performances from both sides, but MVP went to Bronco Von Miller. 

The Denver underdogs didn’t allow Cam Newton room to breathe, and harassed and pounded the quarter back throughout the game to match a seven sack Super Bowl record. Newton’s overthrows, interceptions and lost fumbles pretty much handed Peyton Manning his second Super Bowl title.     

 But the half time show by contrast was spectacular, as Coldplay, Beyoncé and Bruno Mars performed a moving mashup featuring fifty years of Super Bowl halftime shows.Whilst this may have been Manning’s final rodeo, there is no doubt the charismatic Cam will return and make amends.   

 

#RBS6Nations Round 1 round up

What a thrilling start to the tournament!  imageAt the end of round 1, England sit atop the championship table and a draw at the Aviva Stadium today means there are only two teams who can still get their hands on the coveted Grand Slam.

Here is a visual round up of the weekend’s activities courtesy of your friends, the Six Biscuits…

High expectations for Round 2!

 

Hooray, it’s GAME DAY!!

The Six Nations kicks off today, and it has what it takes to be yet another intriguing tournament, with a number of teams setting their sights at the trophy.

ROUND ONE

GAME 1 – France v Italy KO 14.25pm, BBC1

DSC_5998Italy will want a good performance to avoid the increasing questions for a relegation system to be introduced, as teams like Georgia putting in impressive performances against high quality opposition at the World Cup.

France remain as unpredictable as ever, and could deliver a surprise coup.

GAME 2 – Scotland v England KO 16:50pm, BBC1

DSC_6002Vern Cotter’s Scotland will be heading to the Calcutta Cup fixture with elevated confidence after narrowly missing out on a coveted World Cup Semi Final place.  A win against England today could see Scotland vying for their first ever six nations win (they are of course, the reigning 5 Nations Champions!).

England’s early World Cup exit was unfortunate, but the fact that Eddie Jones’ new era team broadly mirrors that under predecessor Lancaster, shows that England cannot be ruled out for a championship win.  Whilst England haven’t won the tournament since 2011, they have continued to be a dominant force having finished 2nd for the last four years.

GAME 3 (SUN) – Ireland v Wales KO 15:00pm, ITV

DSC_6000Wales have a strong chance with 3 home games. They also have a good post-World Cup record, having won the tournament with Grand Slams in both 2008 and 2012.

Ireland are looking, however, to retain the title, with Rory Best at the helm in place of talisman Paul O’Connell.  The clash at Twickenham on the 27th may be come to a tournament decider…

May the best biscuit win!DSC_5993
