England edge France in tight Six Nations battle at Twickenham

Don't think there was head to head, I think that was shoulder to high chest and Picamoles' head rocked back with the impact. I've watched it on 25% speed to really enjoy it, and haven't seen any sign of head to head.

Not the proudest wank I've ever had, mind.

Scotland were undoubtedly the team of the first round. As you say, it's great to see them starting to get the rewards of playing a more adventurous style of rugby. Now if only we can convince the Welsh to follow suit...

Scotland leave it late to beat Ireland in thrilling Six Nations opener

Attacking team sets the number of players, it can be 14 men if they so wish. Don't think there are limits. Wales put in a lineout with about 10 players once, against the ABs I think. I think more teams would do it if they weren't worried about leaving themselves open defensively.

Picamoles is an absolute beast, and absolutely deserved MOTM for his performance. How the hell England managed to win that, I do not know. France threw everything at us. I'd love to see France get back to their best, they've been sub-standard for too long. They have high expectations and it's time they started to live up to them.

Did you all catch this monster shoulder from Farrell on Saturday? Stopped Picamoles dead in his tracks. Thought it looked a bit high, at the time, and wondered if Farrell would get a card for it, but it just looks like a properly brutal Rugby League type hit. Absolutely nailed it.

Seems a bit harsh on Parisse. That's a player who has had to give his team go-forward all on his very own.

Legendary scrumhalf Joost van der Westhuizen passes away

What the guy did on the field was impressive. What he did in his last few years of life to raise the profile of his condition and to try to pursue better treatments, that was another level.

A life well lived, now rest in peace.
