Ross Moriarty's thumping late hit on Owen Farrell in Cardiff

Howley cocked up. He had written down that he wanted to bring Faletau on a X time and just went ahead and did it, regardless of how well players on the pitch were doing.

The point isn't that he can't tackle, it's that he doesn't work his arse off to get into positions to change the game while defending.

Don't see a huge problem with it. Probably a bit late and he put himself in a stupid position where he could have got himself a yellow, but quite like to see a bit of aggro in a game.

Don't tell me we're not allowed to pedants now. I'll never come back.

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.
