Last weekend saw a spectacular start to the prestigious Six Nations 2010. The tournament got back into full swing with epic performances from England who exceeded media expectation to gain a 30-17 win over Wales, at Twickenham. James Haskell stole the show with two incredible tries on his 23rd cap, as Wilkinson secured the win kicking 16 points between the posts. England Captain, Steve Borthwick told BBC Sport “we work hard and sometimes it doesn’t come to fruition, but today it did”. James Haskell reinforced, "we’ve wanted a win for a long time. There was great spirit shown by the guys… this is a step in the right direction, but we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves”. The weekend’s other Six Nations matches saw France crumbling Scotland 18-9 at Murrayfield, and Ireland who battled Italy to a 29-11 defeat at Croke Park.
