The greatest day?

Italy 20-61 Wales
Wales entered the game with a points difference of +12, 25 behind England. Warren Gatland’s side scored 47 unanswered second-half points and George North scored three tries to boost their points difference to +53.
Scotland 10-40 Ireland
Ireland, on +33, were the closest to England in terms of points difference and this romp ended Wales’ hopes. Jonny Sexton kicked 16 points, putting them on +63 at the summit. Over to you England. You need a 26-point win over France.
England 55-35 France
England knew what they had to do: win by 26 points and the title was theirs. But each time they crossed the line, France did the same. At the end they needed just six points for glory, but their inability to stop conceding was their downfall.
If only I could remember any of it.
