Ireland Will Make History If They Beat Scotland This Weekend

Record breakers.

Ireland head into this weekend’s round four Six Nations clash with Scotland as the only unbeaten team left in the competition, having won all three of their games so far.

They currently sit top of the standings, five points clear of nearest rivals England, and depending on results this weekend, could seal the championship with a round to spare.

Despite beating England on the final day, last year’s Six Nations was a disappointment for Joe Schmidt’s men. Having beaten Australia and New Zealand in the Autumn, they would have expected to be still challenging on the final day.

But ever since that victory, Ireland have been on an incredible run of form. And now they stand to break their record for consecutive wins, if they manage to defeat Scotland on Saturday.

Ireland have never won more than 10 games on the trot, but a win over Scotland will make it 11. Their record for consecutive games without defeat is 12, which they could match with a win or draw with England on the final day.
