England 47,Italy 17 at Twickenham (6 Nations)
Ireland 18, France 11 in Dublin (6 Nations)
England were too strong for Italy at Twickenham. Italy were competitive early on and throughout the first half. England dominated the second half and preyed upon mistakes made under pressure by Italy.
Ireland had to battle against a fierce French side intent on preserving their good record in Dublin and to show a big improvement from last weekend. This result paves the way for a mouth-watering class between England and Ireland on 1 March.
The next round of Six Nations matches are..

Wales v France in Paris
England v Ireland in Dublin
Wales and Scotland clash tomorrow at Murrayfield.
