Exactly a year ago, during the night of the 14th and 15th of June 2017, a huge fire engulfed Grenfell Tower (a twenty seven storey tower block in West London) in flames. There are seventy one known deaths but there are still believed to be more; hundreds have been left homeless. It is thought that what caused the fire was an exploded fridge but there are still more theories. But still, a year on, the building still looks as if it has just been cremated. Tonight it will be lit green, and many vigils will be held in the memory of all those who died. People were told to stay in there rooms because it was thought that the doors to every flat was fire-proof, but it wasn't. Hours later the fire brigade changed their and just told everyone to get out: for some people it was too late. It is now believed that the reason the bock of flats went up in flames so quickly, was because of the cladding on the exterior of the building. An enquiry into the fire has begun hearing evidence this month. We now need to remember all the families that have been devastated by this tragedy and ensure this never happens again. By- Raphaela

          Ireland thumped England on St Patrick's Day in Twickenham to win the 6 nations and the third Grand Slam in their history in thrilling fashion. A grand slam is when a team in a league wins all of their games and the league itself.  Ireland ignited the St Patrick's Day celebrations by completing the Grand Slam as England collapsed to a 24-15 defeat. This is what the table looked like at the end of the league: Position.        PLAYED WINS   DRAWS   LOSSES    POINTS SCORED       POINTS SCORED AGAINST   POINT DIFFERENCE    POINTS 1.Ireland 5 5 0 0 160 82 78 26 2.Wales 5 3 0 2 119 83 36 15 3.Scotland 5 3 0 2 101 128 -27 13 4.France 5 2 0 3 108 94 14 11 5.England 5 2 0 3 102 92 10 10 6.Italy 5 0 0 5 92 203 -111 1 "Every team that I've had that's been a champion team has had a run like this," Eddie Jones the head coach of the England squad said. "It's just about being instrumental in how you remake yourself. We've had to develop the internal part of the team, how our coaching staff and players work together, how our team must take more responsibility for the game ... We've made some really good development in those areas. For us it's been an enormously beneficial if not disappointing tournament because we're finding out how to be a better team." After his team united a nation on St Patrick's Day, coach Joe Schmidt said the age divide within his Ireland squad helped secure this year's Six Nations championship. "Youthful enthusiasm is being tempered by the experienced guys that certainly have been there before," modestly said Joe Schmidt the Ireland head coach. "That blend is working quite well for us at the moment." The question is who will win the Rugby World Cup next year in Japan?

On Tuesday 24th April, Liverpool and Roma had what we thought would be an intense matchup in the semi-final of the Champions League. As it turned out, Liverpool dominated from start to finish winning an astonishing 5-2 at Anfield.  Egyptian Mohamed Salah (who ironically used to play for Roma) scored 2 world class finishes and set up beautiful goals for Sadio Mane and Roberto Firminio. Salah has had an altogether exceptional season and was deservedly named Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year. His haul of 43 goals is the most by any player in all competitions in Europe's top five leagues this season. He scored 10 goals in the Champions League alone - the most, along with Roberto Firmino, by a Liverpool player in a single season in European competition. But in spite of their opponents' dazzling performance that night, Roma still managed to sneek in 2 away goals which means that the Italian club are still very much 'in it' and could come out on top in the second leg which will take place on Wednesday 2nd May. Edin Džeko tucked away a penalty and Diego Perotti scored with class late in the game. To conclude, this draw may have already been finished in the first leg, though Roma could easily get a place in the final of the Champions League. -By Thomas
