Not saying that I'm finding Ireland v Wales dull, but I've just descaled my kettle and accomplished more than the boys in red have this afternoon.

I've decided the real match is whether I'd put Hugo Keenan or Dan Biggar on my fantasy ["Only Connect" team - Ed.].

Q. What's the connection between that Welsh try and my newly descaled kettle?

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
A. They're both things we've been putting off for ages.

Half-time: oh, this is tense.

Think the Scots have the upper hand but England could still swing it.

Ireland v Wales was clearly the warm-up act, happy just to be on the bill.

Secretly hoping for a drop goal

Scotland v England

You know that thing about how England's going to blow it away, going to throw it away?

Well, today was a clear example of that. They could have done so much better.

Quite a good game until the last 5 minutes, which were bullshit.

I'm now convinced that Dupont is an advanced rugby playing robot.

Half-time.

This is an excellent game. Hansen's try was awesome.

Scotland v France

Half-time: Hogg's fumble with an open field is the stuff of nightmares.

A few French mistakes but watching the current squad play remains a thing of beauty.

Really enjoying this.

England v Wales- Half-time

What a mess. Not a good mess, not an exciting mess, but the kind that makes me wonder why I watch this. In short, it's the rugby equivalent of a terrible episode of "Doctor Who".

Second half was a vast improvement.
That first English try, snatched from the line out, was awesome.

That was a tense finish. Wales should have got that, if they had managed to keep their penalty count down.

Wales got so close to breaking France's defences yesterday but never quite managed it. I think it's the toughest game France have played in a while.

I watched the first half, and I wasn't really sure how the score was so low on both sides (if that makes sense).

A hell of a mess for both sides. That red card was justified however; a completely illegal tackle.

I did enjoy Gibson Park's look of confusion when he got the ball before he spotted Keenan however.

That whistle when Steward nabbed the ball and got so far down the field was painful.

Neither side covered themselves with glory today but England did amazingly well with 14 players.

I was on my feet cheering at that point.

Well done Italy. That was a great match.
