6 Nations Challenge: Grand Finale
March 10, 2014
What a breathtaking finale that was, to another fantastic 6 Nations. The moviescript ending happened after all, with a rare and incredibly tight victory for Ireland in Paris on Brian O’Driscoll’s final outing, leading to an even more riotous St Patrick’s Day weekend. Earlier on England had given themselves a chance with a thumping victory against the Italians, and the Welsh secured a comprehensive victory against 14 Scots after Stuart Hogg’s unfortunate indiscretion.
More importantly, in the Idea Group tournament everything went to plan for the top 3, with European Investment Bank’s Stuart Rowlands scoring another impressive 17 points to secure overall victory having lead since round 2. In second place, after a mighty effort bringing 19 points in the final round was Axa’s Gary Flood, and in third place with another 17 points was David Horgan of Calastone.
Other notable performances were the “all or nothing“ options from Darryl Rice of the Home Office, who would have won the overall title if the games had gone differently, but unfortunately plunged 6 places instead. Heading in the other direction were Steve Wallace of Idea Group and John Fairfax of Capita, who both went up 4 places. A mention too for Clearstream’s Neil Wise, who may have tied for 7th place with Jackie Keogh from Lloyds Banking Group, but having guessed Ireland’s final points total to be 135 (it was 132!) easily won the tie break and was by far the closest to the right answer overall.
