As the 2019 Guinness Six Nations takes a break this weekend, it’s worth looking at some of the best fan posts across social media from the a scintillating first three rounds of action.
From cross-nation diplomacy to pure delight, rugby fans all over the world have shown their class in celebrating an incredible Championship to date.
So without further ado, here’s the top ten fan posts so far:
English fans are clearly still sore from last Saturday’s defeat, but credit to Stan Harris for giving the Welsh team their dues.
And it was a sentiment echoed by ClemmiePresents after England’s stellar Round One win in Dublin.
But Scotland proved that Wales aren’t the only side capable of belting out a national anthem, with Aaron Elvis Crofts particularly stirred by BT Murrayfield’s effort.
After opening the Guinness Six Nations with back-to-back defeats, Oliv Labuse and Kevin Stroud enjoyed seeing the patented French flair return in the Round Three win against Scotland.
The Welsh grandmother attending her first-ever match certainly captured the imagination, as did the classy move from the Welsh team to have a chat with her. And Keith Stewart was sending respect from the other side of the Irish Sea for a gesture that epitomises rugby.
She wasn’t the only fan making headlines in the stands, and Paul Sheehan took solace from another’s delight on the day.
Cast your mind back to the start of the Championship and Sergio Parisse’s record-breaking appearance against Scotland, but it was his unfailing character that Sue Smith was quick to credit.
The Italy skipper wasn’t the only one breaking records in Round One, something that Keith DBee certainly won’t be forgetting about any time soon.
Prop Demba Bamba was sublime in France’s Round Three victory over Scotland and both Rob Shutt and was glad to see some recognition for the big men.
And finally, Steve Adams and Filippo Bianchi were quick to point out that small gestures can have a big effect on the rugby pitch.
