Saturday, March 18, 2006 In the Six Nations Cup, Ireland beat England 28 points to 24, to win The Triple Crown. France, on the other hand, won the overall championship. Remember — The Rugby World Cup is only but eighteen months away! Looking at Irelands performance in the championship they are certainly a team that gel well together and are on the way up.Ireland have now beaten England on the last three occasions that these sides have met.
