Phil Vickery’s Six Nations Match Report: All to Play For

What a tournament the Six Nations is; steeped in history and full of fierce national rivalries. I loved playing in it and I love watching it. Now, we are seeing the birth of a potentially great England side. I know it has been said a lot, but look at the lack of age and experience...

Phil Vickery’s Six Nations Match Report: France vs. England

Welcome to my Six Nations column for 2014. I hope you were able to watch the opening weekend of what I think is the greatest rugby tournament in the world.

Phil Vickery Reports: Ouch – Brutal Battle Leads to Showdown

What an amazing game.  Saturday’s second test match  proved to be a brutal affair that even made me wince.  The tension was obvious and made for a tight game.  The Lions had to a lot of defending throughout and it showed at the end when the line cracked and Adam Ashley Cooper cut through for...

Phil Vickery Reports: England March On

Phil Vickery Reports: England March On

The RBS Six Nations very rarely disappoints and the clash between England and France at Twickenham was brutal.  It was a good old physical battle with some crunching tackles and although France put England under intense pressure yet again this young side came up with the win. It did not look like it in the...
Grand weekend for a slam... by Phil Vickery

Grand weekend for a slam… by Phil Vickery

After the fireworks of last weekend we were treated this week to more – shall we say – ‘traditional’ Six Nations rugby. The rain in Dublin, which was truly awful, and pitch conditions in France would not have helped but Scotland aside we did not see an awful lot of running rugby. Not that I am complaining as to...

Phil Vickery Reports: Showstopping Opening for the Greatest Rugby Tournament in the World

I might be biased – oh alright – I am biased but I honestly believe there is nothing like the Six Nations.  For all the kids out there who watch this competition and maybe don’t know the history, believe me the rivalry goes back a long, long way!  It is unique with its structure which...
