Final six nations weekend 2018

For the last few years I have attended at least one of the six nations matches, but not this year…..

So on the final weekend we made the trip to Brighton to watch all three matches with my sister and Jane.

The weather was inclement but roads were fine.

We were going to eat food from each of the nations all washed down with fizz.

First match was italy v Scotland in Rome. Food was tablet and figs in Parma ham.

Italy looked like they were going to beat the Scots until Greg Laidlaw composed himself to take a late penalty!

Next up England v Ireland. Ireland had already won the tournament, winning this match gave them the Grand Slam.

Food for this was steak and Irish stout mini pies, and afternoon tea with scones!

Ireland were worthy winners and it was great to watch them lift the trophy!

Wales v France next and this would decide runner up.

Welsh cakes and Boursin were duly consumed, with leek tart to come!

The Welsh has a point to prove and win. This resulted in Scotland being 3rd and England 5th.

The fire roared, the fizz flowed and we were full to bursting

A really enjoyable weekend was had.! 🍾🍾💕💕🏈🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Next year I have to go to at least one match though!!!
