(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.

Gordon D'arcy - Ireland

Gordon D’arcy – Ireland

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.

Jake Ball - Wales

Jake Ball – Wales

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.

Brice Dulin - France

Brice Dulin – France

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.
