Ireland legend writes off England’s Six Nations chances

The Six Nations will boil down to a final-weekend title decider between Ireland and Wales, according to Gordon D’Arcy.

“I think it is a decider on the final day between Wales and Ireland,” said D’Arcy, speaking on behalf of ITV.

“With both carrying form from the November internationals, and more strength in depth across their squads.

“The freshness of centrally contracted players for both could be a telling difference from the rest of the pack.

“The more success a team has, the larger a target they become; Ireland are a giant target at the moment.

“However Ireland have become very adept at looking after their own performances, I don’t see them wavering from that formula during the Six Nations.

“They can’t control everything, so a bounce of a ball may go against them or a decision. Can they win? Yes, but they might need a little luck along the way.”
