11 of the Most Iconic Moments in Six Nations History

What is so memorable about the moment is the quality of George Ford’s pass to Owen Farrell and then Farrell’s inch perfect delivery to the Wasps winger. English magic in the land of wizards.

6. Yachvili scores Grand Slam decider

Dimitri Yachvili’s clever grubber kick and chase try was the moment when France were revenged for the semi final loss in Australia. It was the highlight of a masterful performance from the Biarritz scrum half as he kicked the goals and made this soon to be Grand Slam French team’s only other try.

7. Sexton’s Miracle Drop Goal

An excruciating 41 phases passed before Ireland forced themselves into a kicking position. Still, standing just inside the French half, the odds were stacked against Sexton to actually deliver a winning kick.

He couldn’t have caught it any sweeter as the ball sailed between the posts to send the travelling Irish fans into a frenzy.
