WHAT a Six Nations weekend we were treated to.

Were Wales denied a penalty try which may have changed the outcome? Regardless of what was a debatable call, you have to say the French are getting better each match and it's really good rugby to watch their individual flair being allowed to be prosper.

Scotland did the job needed and secured their first win in the tournament, but sadly Italy are just not getting any better.

On Sunday, England just blew Ireland off the park in the first half with some outstanding rugby. There was speed and intensity throughout the game, and those who doubted Eddie Jones' selection policy will have to keep quiet for a bit as he delivered the result in this game.

On the local front, the big news unfortunately came from Rams.

While they had a week off, it was revealed the RFU have deducted them five points and a season without funding for an admin error.

I find this quite remarkable and I do really feel for them being punished this way, as anyone involved in the running of a club are all too familiar on how difficult it is in filling in the GMS system to supply the RFU with information they require each season.

I think the RFU really need to look at the way they have enforced the system on clubs and also need to recognise the people who do this for their club don’t get paid and it is very time consuming and confusing.

Let’s hope this week they have a big win at home against Rotherham and the deduction does not affect the great season they have had so far.

Elsewhere, London Irish enjoyed a great 24-20 victory over Gloucester ahead of Sunday's game with Wasps.

After a week off, my boys Reading visit Aylesbury in the hope of securing an 11th straight win which would put us in control of sealing a Southern Counties play-off place.

Reading Abbey travel to leaders Witney and even a losing bonus point will help them solidify their safety aspirations, while Berkshire Shire Hall pop visit Rams 4ths in Berks, Bucks & Oxon Two South.
