There was something for everyone on the penultimate weekend, not least at Twickenham. Ireland were boasting a perfect record heading into their clash with England, but Steve Borthwick's side kept alive their hopes of finishing top of the group with the fewest wins.

Elsewhere, Italy stunned Scotland with a 31-29 victory to continue the impressive tournament. France were not at their best, but the 45 points they scored in the win over Wales are more than anyone else has achieved this year.
