The pressure is on for the English rugby team as they are set to play their final game in the 6 Nations Tournament in a bid to win the Grand Slam this Saturday.

As Brian O’Driscoll, Ireland’s captain, told the RBS 6 Nations’s official website: “It’s always a huge game for us because of the history between the countries”. He added that they would exploit the opponents’ nerves as the pressure will be palpable for the British team.

Two of Scotland’s most popular sports golf and rugby union are set to return to the Olympics, the
International Olympic Committee (IOC) has announced.
The IOC voted to include the two sports in the 2016 games at their Congress in Copenhagen on Friday.
Gordon Mckie, the
Scottish Rugby Union‘s Chief Executive, welcomed the decision, saying that “rugby will be given a massive global boost as a consequence of this decision”.
Both sports have appeared at the Olympics in the past. Golf was only played twice, while 15-a-side rugby was part of the programme until 1924.
