A few days after its defeat at Twickenham against the XV de la Rose (23-22), the XV du Trèfle won in Dublin against Scotland to win their second consecutive Six Nations tournament. The 24th in its history.

Scottish resistance was not enough to win against the (almost) imperial XV of Clover during this Six Nations tournament. Andy Farrell’s men had perfectly launched a victory against the Blues in Marseille (17-38), before two walks against Italy (36-0) then once again in Dublin, against Wales (31- 7).

Even if the XV de la Rose had bothered them at Twickenham during their penultimate match (23-22), the favorites of this 2024 edition reacted perfectly with a great victory against a Scottish team that was indestructible in defense.

After a first penalty scored by Finn Russell in the 8th minute of play (0-3), the locals responded straight away with a try from Sheehan, taking advantage of a touch that was too long and missed by George Turner, the clumsy Irish hooker . A try transformed in stride by Jack Crowley, once again decisive this Saturday (10-3).

Finn Russell, who allowed his team to stay level the following minutes (10-6), lacked creativity, and in particular a daring kicking game, to allow his team to get back in front.

In the second half, the Irish increased their attacks, taking control of the match despite a valiant Scottish team. The attacks followed one another but the XV du Chardon defended and broke free. This pattern repeated itself over and over again. Finally, and taking advantage of the yellow card received by Ewan Ashman (65th), the locals ended up finding the fault in the middle of the second half, after a penalty played quickly, with the hand.

The Scots pushed at the end of the match, even scoring the last try of the match thanks to a great run from Huw Jones, for the show. A try scored too late to worry the Irish, who secured their 24th coronation in the Six Nations tournament, before the Crunch.
