Six Nations 2014 – Final Round Permutations
England, France and Ireland are the three teams in contention to win Six Nations 2014 with Ireland likely to win if they can beat France through their healthy points differential courtesy of large wins over Italy and Wales. England has the easier final round fixture against Italy, but they must win handsomely to overturn the 49 points differential deficit they have to Ireland. If France beat Ireland and Italy upset England, then France will win the title, while if both France and England win then France would have to win by 30 more points than England do.
