Congratulations to the inaugural Six Beards Nations Champions
2 points for a win, 1 for a draw. Beards judged on quantity and quality as a team.
(Winners in bold)
Wales – Italy
Strong performance from a predominantly bearded Italian team.
France – England
Poor effort from England gifted the win to France.
Ireland – Scotland (Draw)
Uninspiring all around.
Ireland – Wales
Narrow victory, D’arcy magnificent as usual but no back up for the ginger beardsman.
Scotland – England (Draw)
Hamilton the pick of the Scottish beards, but more of a team show pulls it back for England.
France – Italy
Very tough one to call, but Italy just edges it led by Castrogiovanni.
Wales – France
Adam Jones and Jake Ball as usual in imperious form, but the French take it.
Italy – Scotland
Narrow victory for Italy against a strong Scotland team.
England – Ireland
Was always going to be Marler v D’arcy, but the Englishman appears to have found his razor.
Ireland – Italy (Draw)
Grand Beard Slam dreams dashed for Ireland being overly reliant on D’arcy to carry the team.
Scotland – France
Scotland poor in the face of French faces.
England – Wales
England improving, but couldn’t compete with a Welsh team led by Jake Ball.
Italy – England
Much improved performance from England, but no match for Italy. Champions.
Wales – Scotland
Wales very poor, Scotland looking good.
France – Ireland
Strong finish to the tournament for France.
