THE Six Nations returns this weekend and all eyes will be on the England-Wales game.

Speedster Anthony Watson is back in Eddie Jones' squad and let’s hope Mark Wilson also gets a chance to show his talents in the pack.

On Sunday, Scotland take on France and while it’s a big ask, if they can cause an upset it will open up the tournament again.

The worrying thing now, though, must be when will the last games be played?

Ireland and England will still have to play their cancelled games against Italy after the official end of the tournament, and with the Coronavirus situation, this could mean it's at least two months before we get to see who will be the winners.

On the local front last weekend, London Irish lost 32-26 to Wasps, which was disappointing as they had control for the majority of the first half.

They have a tought trip to Sale Sharks tomorrow night, hoping to make amends for their horror-show in the home fixture earlier this season.

Rams returned to National One action after the crazy five-point penalty imposed by the RFU, and they came back with a vengeance in sealing a 25-20 bonus-point win.

The conditions were really bad, but I have to pay tribute to the more than 30 volunteers who got up very early to get all the water off the pitch to make it playable.

Fair play to them and it was a very entertaining day, with Jamie Guttridge playing his 100th game for the club. Rams visit Old Elthamians this Saturday.

My boys Reading travelled to Aylesbury and, led by an exceptional front row, we gained a resounding six try bonus-point win.

The 36-5 success was our 11th straight Southern Counties North win and puts us eight points clear of third place.

This week we have seventh-place Bicester at home, so hopefully we can make it 12 wins in a row and keep up our bid for a play-off place.

Reading Abbey put in a really brave effort as they lost 14-8 to champions-elect Witney, but at least they picked up a valuable losing bonus-point. Abbey host Aylesbury on Saturday as they bid to continue to move towards safety.

Lastly, second-placed Berkshire Shire Hall visit our 3rds as they try and keep their Berks, Bucks & Oxon Two South title dreams on track.
