Predictions for the 2020 Six
Nations Rugby Championship Final Round
Ben Jardine: October 2020
Six Nations Are Back on the Field
the Championship halted since March, it was
refreshing to watch the game on Saturday. As
the teams ready themselves for next weekend,
here is what you need to know for the fifth
and final round.
Italy took another heavy blow against the
Irish, and it looks like they will take home
the wooden spoon. Wales won with a Grand Slam
in 2019, but they are second to last this
year. Things do not seem to be going well with
Wayne Pivac, their new coach, who's also new
to international championships.
only three games left, Ireland, England, and
France will head into Super Saturday with a
chance of winning the Championship. The Irish
lead by one point, with a total of 14 against
13 for France and England. However, the
situation is dire for Ireland. The English
team, going against the Italians, have the
edge over the others. Meanwhile, the Irish
will head to Paris - or rather, Saint-Denis -
for their last game.
Who's Taking the Trophy Home?
in February, the QBE Insurance Group had its
supercomputer calculating precise odds for the
outcome, simulating the whole tournament
10,000 times. After over 150,000 simulated
games, the odds were in. England led with a
53% chance of winning, followed by the Irish
with a 22% chance.
with any statistical forecast, the odds aren't
guaranteed, and we can see their predictions
already falling apart. According to their
calculations, Wales had the third-highest
chance of winning, and yet they're currently
second to last, fighting for fourth place.
Italians still have zero points on the
leaderboard, and England have a clear
advantage for their last game. Can the English
team tie for first in points and score enough
against Italy to take the lead from Ireland?
Irish can still win, but they'll probably need
a bonus point. England are behind by one point
and a points difference of 23. If they manage
to score four tries against the French, they
can guarantee the trophy, but a narrow victory
might not be enough. France have been strong
this year, so this might be too tall an order.
English have already won the Triple Crown this
year, and it seems like they might win the
Championship as well. It'll be tight for the
Irish, but they can still manage to lift the
Spooky Super Saturday
year, the Six Nations Championship was delayed
due to the pandemic for the first time in
history. The last round will be on the 31st of
October, which is also Halloween. So you
should be ready to have children
trick-or-treating during the matches. If you
wish to watch the games undisturbed, it might
be smart to leave some treats at the door in
advance. We hope the date won't bring any bad
luck to the teams!
