England were rubbish again, but fortunately they were playing against another desperately poor team with a fatal flaw (last week Scotland's complete inability to hang on to the ball, this week Italy's terrible goal-kicking). Ben Youngs was a liability for the second week in a row.

Another entertaining Welsh match. Scotland played awesome, but 2 sinbins killed that match.

Disallowed try should have gone to the video ref.

But seriously, it was another excellent game and the score didn't reflect the result.

Can't help but think that England were lucky to scrape a win against Italy too. It would amuse me if they bumbled their way to a Grand Slam

Yes the yellow cards really changed it, there was no way to defend with 13 men. At this level a sin been normally means 7 points.

Well done those Wales people.

Deep amusement at the woman in the crowds who couldn't bear to watch the last penalty kick, and instead seemed to be praying to the Big Red Dragon.

Didn't like the constant cuts to (presumably) a bunch of WAGs in the crowd. I didn't think rugby was interested in cultivating that sort of image.

Mrs Meaty confirms those are indeed the WAGs. Unlike football wags, they've not had time to dip themselves in fake tan yet. Still some slag from down the street, though.

Excellent try at the start - as good as the one against Ireland.

I felt France were pretty scrappy throughout the game, but I was impressed by their number 14 who seemed to be valiantly making an effort. Will keep my eye on him in future rounds.

England (we) are on form. Two great matches so far.

Wales will be a test in two weeks.

I'm pretty sure I walked past some of the England and Georgian rugby squads on Beaumont Street yesterday. I know that both teams are training in North Oxford and so a group of 30 or so well-built men heading down from the Randolph Hotel makes it likely it was them.

Didn't have time or pavement space to stop and stare for confirmation however.

Confirmation: someone's just come into the office saying they saw them at a nearby café just now.

England v Scotland:

So, how about that first half?

What an amazing game

I missed England's first try because the landlord didn't change the channel early enough. The first Scottish try was excellent.

I seriously considered leaving at half time with the win in the bag. I'm glad I stayed. I made an audible yelp of despair when the Scots equalised, and then felt awkward about it.

As for the other games: Wales v Ireland was 80 or so minutes of utter mess. France v Italy was tenser than I was expecting, and my beloved Penaud (number 14) did an awesome intercept to stop an Italian try.

Yikes. I watched the first half, mostly, then popped to the shops. Got back and Scotland were in sight, then scored again, and again with an interception almost from the restart.

Watching it with Italian commentary only (I am in Italy) was entertaining, particularly so when Scotland got their last try; the co-commentator was unable to speak, he was laughing so hard.
