We’ve just two rounds left to go in the 2021 Six Nations and Wales are in pole position to win a shock Grand Slam after beating England in an eventful game in Cardiff.
Joining Brian to reflect on Englands defeat and more is the former London Irish and England wing Topsy Ojo.
They start in Cardiff where England suffered their second defeat of the competition in controversial circumstances as the hosts were awarded two very dubious tries.
Despite the misfortune both Brian and Topsy feel Wales deserved to win and that the lack of discipline in particular was the main reason for Englands downfall. There’s also a debate surrounding the lack of variety and new faces in the squad.
As for the two tries, former international referee (and Wales fan) Nigel Owens joins the show to describe why both of them should have been disallowed.
France could have joined Wales on three wins from three games but their game against Scotland was called off after a Covid outbreak. It has since transpired that the French squad left their bubble in Rome to get Waffles and it’s led to calls for Scotland to be awarded a 28-0 win.
And Topsy becomes the latest former pro to call on a play off between Georgia and Italy after the Italians were thumped by Ireland, their 30th defeat in a row in the competition.

In This Story: Ireland
Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.
The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.
A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
