Irish rugby fans will tell you that Wales are their bogey team and that’s how it turned out in the first of the weekend’s Six Nations matches. The Welsh shattered Ireland’s hopes of a Grand Slam with a 23 -16 points win in an absorbing encounter in the principality.

England were given a fright by Scotland at Twickenham with the visitors leading at half time before the home side surged ahead to run out 25-13 winners. It was an error-strewn performance from England but means it’s all down to the final weekend when any one of three teams could win the title.

England go into their match against France a-top the table as they have the superior points difference. Scotland host Ireland hoping to avoid the wooden spoon while Wales are in Italy wanting a big score.
