England Set for Successive Grand Slam Titles
Eddie Jones may not have had anything good to say about the way Italy approached their Six Nations match at Twickenham but England came through it and look well placed to win their second successive Grand Slam title.
You must go back to 1998, to find the last time a country won back-to-back Grand Slam titles and it France who achieved the feat, all be it on the old format of the Five Nations. If England succeed in winning every match this season, they will become the first country to do this in successive years, since the formation of the Six Nations in 2000.
Their toughest remaining fixture comes at Ireland on the 18th March but first, Eddie Jones’ team must play a rejuvenated Scotland at Twickenham. Scotland will be buoyed by their 29-13 victory over Wales last time out and will head to London with more confidence than ever before in the Six Nations tournament. You must go back to 1983 to find the last time Scotland defeated England at Twickenham and this underlines the size of the task facing Vern Cotter and his players.
