The Scarlets are the first Welsh team to reach the quarter-finals of the European Cup since Cardiff Blues in 2012. Well done to them.

Wales fly-half Dan Biggar is set to miss the first three rounds of the Six Nations with a shoulder problem. Shame to hear about that.

An very solid performance from England against Italy although I do feel Wales will fancy their chances against England.

An disallowed try was probably the difference in today's match between England and Wales. A very tight match that was.

Former Ireland captain Jamie Heaslip has ended his playing career at the age of 34 on medical advice in order to ensure his "future well being".

The number eight won 95 caps and played for Leinster and the British & Irish Lions, but has been unable to recover from a back injury suffered last year.

QUOTE
England head coach Eddie Jones says he was physically and verbally abused on his way back from Scotland and will no longer travel by public transport.

The Australian travelled alone in standard class on the 09:15 GMT from Edinburgh to Manchester Oxford Road on Sunday after England's 25-13 defeat.

Jones was verbally abused outside the station after posing for a picture.


A man then opened the door of Jones' car to direct further abuse before the driver and another man intervened.

Amazed that in this day that a rugby player in Israel Folau who plays for Australia has the view that gay people would end up in hell. No apology from him. I hope he never plays for them again.
