Elliot Daly late try secures England win after titanic battle with Wales

There was an excellent opportunity to see why Jones values Nowell and not Roko during the last Exeter v Bath match. Roko was immense in attack, absolutely top class, but in defence he was jogging to get back into the line. Nowell was busting his lungs throughout the match and made a couple of crucial tackles.

Jones wants wingers who are going to do the work in attack and defence, and Roko has been told that, so I imagine Jones will have been more than a little frustrated to see Roko doing it time after time. I don't think we'll ever see him play regularly for England unless that mindset changes, and all the time he wastes between then and now just gives a young gun a chance to play the Eddie Jones way and put his hand up for contention.

I think Roko will go the same way as Cipriani - a great player who looks awesome on highlight reels - and will have a similar [lack of] history for England.

Tryfest in Rome as Ireland run riot against Italy

CJ Stander was my first pick of the fantasy tournament and I've not regretted it. He'd be my first name down for the Lions tour. That guy is awesome.

Lopez helps France to edge Scotland after tight encounter in Paris

I loved this match, utterly enthralling. Both teams came to play an exciting brand of rugby and didn't just take easy points (which would have ended the game as a contest much sooner). France were the deserved winners.

Scotland have obviously forgotten previous 6Ns and are really starting to get excited. I hope this is just the first chapter in a fantastic period of Scottish rugby.

If Oliver thinks Lawes' tackle was late, I imagine he'll be along in a minute to let us know how long a ban he thinks Moriarty will get...

I don't know what happened to Moriarty as a child, but that chap was exorcising his demons on Saturday. He was absolutely immense. He could easily have been MOTM after only 60 minutes, he was that influential. Nobody could have done more to typify defiance in the face of the English invader. Awesome.

Maybe BBC Wales could give them some helpful pointers in making great publicity.

Yeah, New Zealand should just shut up and stick to rugby. I mean, it's not like they're constantly redefining what excellence means.
