A much improved performance by the Quins last night and they deservedly inflicted the first defeat of the season on the Chiefs

Saracens made pretty heavy weather beating Wasps yesterday although eventually winning quite comfortable. Not a brilliant game.

 Elsewhere Bristol, who seem to have recovered from the other week, stuck 41 points on Leicester and there was a much needed win by Newcastle at Northampton.

Ulster beat the Scarlets by a point last night in a very scrappy game. In the other match Edinburgh beat Newcastle

Tremendous win by Gloucester at Sandy Park, they were by far the better side. That effectively puts the Chiefs out of Europe.

Not entirely unexpected wins by Leinster and Toulouse against Bath and Wasps yesterday but neither matches were anything to write home about.

The Chiefs completely reversed last weeks game and dominated Gloucester which probably did neither side any good. In the other game Ulster beat Scarlets

After the struggle last week Leinster made lighter work beating Bath yesterday whilst Toulouse beat Wasps in a pretty free scoring game. In the other match Castres pipped Munster 13-12. Interesting game today the Tigers v Racing.

London Irish will move in as tenants at Brentford FC's new Community Stadium from the summer of 2020.

"Irish will end 20 years of playing home matches at Reading's Madejski Stadium with the move to west London.

The 17,250-capacity stadium on Lionel Road near Kew Bridge has also been confirmed as a host venue for the Women's European Championship in 2021"

Great win by the Chiefs against Saracens after a bit of a stutter of late

Harlequins hooker Dave Ward could face disciplinary action after appearing to spit at Wasps' Thomas Young in his side's win at Twickenham.

Ward was sin-binned after stamping on Young's ankle early in the game, but referee Craig Maxwell-Keys seemed to miss the spit which was shown on TV.

Quins back row Alex Dombrandt scored the fastest league try of the season after 49 seconds.

Strange game - I can't recall the last time I saw a Six Nations match changethat much at half time.  Wales sorted-out their problems at half tie and the French seemed unable to respond, instead making awful mistakes like that sequence of awful long passes that lead to the second try by North.

What a brilliant birthday for George North.

Given the presents the French gave him.

Even making allowances for the conditions it was a pretty poor game with far too many errors and no coherent structure apart from the  French to some extent in the first half. Still they went on to give the best display of plucking defeat from the jaws of victory I've seen for a while.

Scotland win by 33-20 at Murrayfield against Italy, though, with around 20 minutes to go, Italy were out of it.  Scotland had a man sent off for 10 minutes and their defence seemed to stop working, allowing the Italians to score three soft tries.

Mighty impressive performance by England. Essentially a team performance but I thought the back row immense.

Best performance from them in at least a couple of years, i think.

Ireland didn't seem to miss his contribution today, though.  Scotland were the better side initially, and had a very good first half, but penalties and handling errors cost them momentum in the second half, allowing Ireland to win 13-22.
