4 Thrilling Six Nations Finishes
Alastair Grant/Associated Press

The Six Nations comes to its climax this weekend as Ireland travel to France to play for the title.

In Rome, England play Italy in an earlier kick-off and will attempt to pile up the points, readying to pounce if Ireland fail in Paris.

With Brian O’Driscoll bowing out after a peerless career, it will be an electric atmosphere in the French capital with Philippe Saint-Andre’s erratic side out to spoil the party.

It promises to be an exciting finish to a championship that has given us some nerve-jangling final days down the years, with Grand Slams going begging and glory being sealed in last-gasp fashion.

Here we look back at four finishes that played the drama out to the final whistle of the final day, from bizarre results that saw one-off outcomes to ancient rivalries that transcended the sport.

The old championship has conjured every sort of denouement you could imagine.
