Scotia castiga Calcutta Cup dupa o asteptare de zece ani

26 februarie 2018 6 NATIONS

Trei victorii ale gazdelor in tot atatea meciuri disputate s-au consemnat in etapa a 3-a din cadrul Six Nations, performera rundei fiind Scotia care a trecut de Anglia la Edinburgh astfel ca Irlanda ramane in fruntea clasamentului in timp ce Italia ocupa ultima pozitie dupa ce a fost infranta in Franta.

Pe Stade Velodrome din Marsilia, Franta a intrecut Italia cu rezultatul de 34-17, cocosii galici in ciuda diferentei de scor irosind sansa obtinerii punctului bonus ofensiv. Azzurri au evoluat curajos mai ales in prima repriza, la pauza avantajul gazdelor fiind de numai patru puncte, dar in partea secunda Hugo Bonneval si Mathieu Bastareaud au securizat victoria elevilor lui Jacques Brunel, fara a obtine insa si bonificatia ofensiva.

Extrem de spectaculoasa a fost partida de la Dublin dintre Irlanda si Tara Galilor, dupa o prima jumatate de ora penele de strut aflandu-se in avanataj si datorita faptului ca Jonathan Sexton a irosit trei tentative de tinta. Pana la pauza irlandezii au revenit si eseul lui Bundee Aki a dus la rasturnarea situatiei de pe tabela de marcaj.

Irlanda a inceput in forta partea secunda astfel ca Dan Leavy si Cian Healy au batut defensiva galezilor care au revenit cu reusitele jucatorilor Aaron Shingler si Steffan Evans. Finalul a fost dramatic, frunza de trifoi avand un avantaj de trei puncte insa trupa lui Warren Gatland nu a stiut sa gestioneze ultimul atac si Jacob Stockdale a dat lovitura dupa o interceptie.

Scotia a jucat aproape fara greseala in prima repriza a partidei de pe Murrayfiled , in fata Angliei, dupa 40 de minute ciulinii conducand cu 22-6 in urma celor trei incercari marcate de Huw Jones dubla si Sean Maitland, in timp ce replica trandafirilor a constat in doua tentative de tinta concretizate de Owen Farrell.

Acelasi Owen Farrell a marcat o incercare in debutul reprizei secunde si se parea ca Anglia va avea puterea sa revina, insa scotienii au jucat cu daruirea care-i caracterizeaza, blocand practic drumul catre propriul teren de tinta, avantajul obtinut in prima repriza dovedindu-se decisiv pentru ca ciulinii sa intre in posesia Calcutta Cup dupa o asteptare de zece ani.
