France and Wales produced one of the greatest championship games of all time to wrap up Super Saturday with Brice Dulin’s last breath This will ensure that the 2021 Guinness Six Nations final will determine the title’s goal

After Wales fans missed the Grand Slam in the most gruesome circumstances, they may feel disappointed, but the good news is they could still celebrate the title towards Cardiff

France will host Scotland next Friday in a game that has been postponed from the third round Les Bleus have the opportunity to win the championship for the first time since 2010 and they are masters of their own destiny

Wales are currently at the top of the table with 20 points and France in third place with 15 So read on to find out what scenarios are required for each of these countries to win the trophy

Should Les Bleus win a bonus point, the top position will be decided by the point difference

Wales currently has a difference of 61 points from France’s 41, so a win of 21 points or more against Scotland in four attempts is enough for Fabien Galthie’s troops to become Guinness Six Nations champions in 2021

If France wins bonus points in the unlikely situation and prevails with exactly 20 points, the winner will be determined based on the attempts made

Wales have made 20 attempts while France currently has 15, so six more would do this for Les Bleus

If Scotland win, draw or even lose, but France cut four attempts, Wales are champions

Even if Scotland suffers a loss and concedes four tries, as long as the final defeat is 19 points or less, the Guinness Six Nations trophy goes to Cardiff

Yes it can. If France scores a bonus point win against Scotland with exactly 20 points and scores exactly five tries, the two countries are tied in terms of points, point difference and attempts made

At this point, the Guinness Six Nations title was shared for the first time since France and Wales happened to share the Five Nations Crown in 1988 …
