Weekend Social Media Reaction


Well what a weekend of sport that was, from the climax of the Six Nations to the upsets in the FA Cup quarter-finals, it really had it all.

Here are some of our picks from the social media reactions on a weekend that will live long in the memory.

One of the greats

Amid the pressure, the intensity and the magnitude of Wales’ clash against Ireland to secure a Grand Slam there was a touching moment that could have gone under the radar.

Thankfully the eager eyes of @MarcherLord1 caught the moment Alun Wyn Jones noticed his seven-year-old mascot was shivering, wet and cold before the anthem.

Not only a great for what he does on the rugby field but the great man Jones took off his training top and wrapped it round the young boy.

Just class from Jones on a real party day/night in Cardiff as Wales (8/1 2019 World Cup outright) secured a 25-7 win over the reigning champions Ireland to secure the Grand Slam .

A Calcutta Cup to top them all

The title might have already been secured by Wales on Saturday but there was pride and the Calcutta Cup to play for in the final game of the 2019 Six Nations as England welcomed Scotland to Twickenham.

A number of former players and pundits had tipped up a more than convincing Red Rose win and it certainly looked that way when England (4/1 2019 World Cup outright) blitzed their way to a 31-0 lead.

The unthinkable then happened as Twickenham and the rugby world were left dumbfounded as the Scots ran in six unanswered tries.

Denied a famous win thanks to a last-gasp George Ford try, the Scots managed to earn a 38-38 draw from a seemingly impossible position.

One man who could not play the game due to injury was Scotland number eight Ryan Wilson, who was key to upsetting the English for the Scots’ Calcutta Cup win 12 months ago.

Not one to shy away, @ryanwilson89 will have enjoyed his photo with the famous trophy at Twickenham, with the Calcutta Cup set to come north of the border again.

Only joking Paul

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted Saturday was a low point in his time as interim manager at Old Trafford as the Red Devils suffered a 2-1 defeat in the FA Cup quarter-finals at the hands of Wolves.

The Norwegian has done an impressive job at United (18/1 Champions League outright), helping to settle the ship following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

Former United midfielder Paul Ince had previously stated that anyone could have gone in and get the same results as Solskjaer.

This was not lost on presenter Gary Lineker who had a little jibe at the pundit, much to the delight of a certain Ian Wright.

Classic Finn

Valtteri Bottas (6/1 Drivers’ Championship outright) will have enjoyed his weekend as the Mercedes star got off to a flying start in the 2019 F1 season with victory at the Australian Grand Prix.

Not one to get too carried away and with perfect Finnish demeanour, his reaction to former racer Mark Webber’s post-race question was simply perfect.
