Doc's brings the 2015 RBS 6 Nations to Niagara Falls 

The first weekend of action from the RBS 6 Nations tournament is officially in the books. We've got all details you need to know, as rugby coverage is typically sparse here in North America. As an added bonus we dug up a survival guide for Rugby Newbies from The Telegraph. Click the link to learn rugby basics, history of the sport and the guide could help you sound like you know what you're talking about!

England edges Wales

CARDIFF -  Wales jumped out to 10-0 lead inside the first 10 minutes of play. However, this would not be enough to win the match. England made it a game and brought the score to 16-8 at the half. The second half would be all England, as they scored 13 unanswered points to win the opening game of the 2015 6 Nations Championship, 21-16. England plays Italy in Round 2, and Wales travel to Scotland. 

Ireland thrashes Italy

ROME -  The Azzuri had their plates full, as Ireland romped them in this first round blowout. The 1st half score of 9-3 suggested that perhaps the Italians could pull off the the unthinkable. But it wasn't until late in the 2nd half when the Irish turned up the heat.  Hooker Leonardo Ghiradini received a yellow card and the mighty Irish scored two tries in 10 minutes to seal the game for Ireland. Ireland host the French in the 2nd round, while Italia travel to London and try not to go down 0-2. 

France kicks out Scotland's lights

PARIS -  After a highly defensive match, the French are off to a great start. Scotland's last win in Paris came 16 years ago, back when they won the 5 Nations title in 1999. The French didn't need to score a single try to beat Scotland, as Camille Lopez scored all 15 points with his foot. France defeated Scotland with red jerseys  -which they haven't worn since 1959. Round 2 finds France travelling to Dublin which could be the match of the weekend. Scotland hosts Wales on Saturday morning.
