International Round Up | Six Cherry and Whites shine for their nations

Gloucester Rugby had six internationals in action last weekend as Louis Rees-Zammit, Jonny May, Stephen Varney, Chris Harris, Alex Craig and Giorgi Kveseladze all represented their nations.

France vs Wales

Louis Rees-Zammit arrived in France hoping to secure the Grand Slam for Wales but his team were pipped 32-30 as France kept their Six Nations hopes alive.

Wales are five points clear at the top of the table but have now played their final game as France face Scotland on Friday in the deciding fixture of the competition.

Rees-Zammit nearly touched down for a spectacular try in the corner, but TMO Wayne Barnes decided the attempted finish had been grounded on the base of the corner flag meaning the ball was out of play.

The flying winger excelled on the international stage once again and will hope that his team have done enough to win the competition.

Ireland vs England

Jonny May started on the wing in England’s 32-18 loss to Ireland as Eddie Jones’ men were outperformed in Dublin.

May scored a try with just two minutes remaining but it was too little too late for England who lost their third game of the tournament.

Scotland vs Italy

Stephen Varney started at scrum half for Italy and gained more valuable experience at an international level as his side were beaten 52-10 by Scotland at Murrayfield.

In the second half, Gloucester Rugby’s representation in the game continued as Chris Harris came on at centre and Alex Craig replaced Grant Gilchrist to make his international debut.

Russia vs Georgia

Giorgi Kvesleadze made his 32nd cap for Georgia as his side beat Russia 23-6 in the Rugby Europe Championship.

Georgia have won all three of their games in the competition and sit top of the table on 13 points.
