Scotland - England: 0-20
We had a busy weekend in the rugby history. Unfortunately it is not the best result for Scotland.
Scotland interim head coach Scott Johnson admits his side were taught a lesson by England at Murrayfield but he's adamant they will show their true colours before the end of the RBS 6 Nations.
Hopefully they only had a bad day to be defeated so much by England and will show a better performance against France in March.
Ireland - Wales: 26-3
Wales cannot say they were not warned. After a stuttering opening-day performance against Italy, they knew they would have to raise their game if they were to stand any chance against Joe Schmidt’s fast improving Ireland. Knowing it and doing it are two different things, however, and Ireland gave Wales absolutely no respite in Dublin, destroying them in every department, showing power, passion and commendable discipline in the process. This is what the professionals says - anyway it was a gorgeous and very enjoyable game to watch.
France - Italy: 30-10
France run in three second half tries as they maintain their winning start to the Six Nations in an explosive 30-10 against Italy. With the score at 9-3 at half time, Louis Picamoles, Wesley Fofana and Hugo Bonneval all went over the line in the second half to blow the Italians away. Both sides had men sent off after Italian prop Michele Rizzo head-butted his French counterpart Rabah Slimani who retaliated in kind and followed up with a series of upper cuts. France finished the match with 13 men, after replacement lock Sebastien Vahaamahina was sin-binned moments earlier for kicking the ball away.
