6 Nations: England on their way to another Slam

Not the most flowing of games, but England's win (16-3) today at Worcester was enough to ensure that they have at least one hand on the Six Nations trophy for the sixth time. Only Scotland and Ireland stand in their way, which in practice means only Ireland...

Sky's live coverage was slightly spoilt by their decision to switch the game to the "red button" in the second half in favour of some utterly forgettable golf event. I guess we should be thankful that they covered it at all, but even so this was a bit shabby - especially for anyone following the game online (as a fair few were) or trying to record it. Sky have a "feedback" page at, if you can spare a minute (and whether you were watching it or not - indeed whether you are a Sky subscriber or not) please drop them a line and tell them what you think about this!

Elsewhere Ireland predictably beat Scotland - by only by 22-5, which - considering the hiding Wales gave them a fortnight ago - was perhaps not a great performance. Especially as Wales lost 12-8 to Italy today, which mean that the Italians will be targeting fourth place this year - which will be a remarkable performance.

PS - Congratulations to England U20s as well, who beat France 12-5 before the women's game.

    England U20's played before the senior game but not on Sixways, they were moved to a wet, muddy and unsuitable ground on the Worcester complex. Embarrassing really but a good crowd watching. Why could the boys not have moved????

    The women's under 20s were moved but not the boys because it's a man's world. Unfortunately, it seems that such treatment is something as women we have to put up with for a lot longer. Very few people actually care about women's rugby - at least not enough to make a major difference.
