For Ireland there is the rare possibility of a Grand Slam, for England hope after two lack-lustre performances against Scotland and France.

Rare? Ireland has won it only twice since 1908 – in 1948 and 2009.

Second place in 2018 is yet to be decided. But as unbeaten Ireland are sure of having the trophy, winless Italy are sure of having the wooden spoon.

The Log

1 Ireland – 19 points
2. Wales – 11 points
3. England – 10 points
4. France – 10 points
5. Scotland – 8 points
6. Italy – 0 points

In the Women's Six Nations France will head for Colwyn Bay in the hope of securing a victory over Wales and as a result a Grand Slam – Grand Chelem.

In Rugby Europe, most interest will focus on the Brussels match, as a win for Spain will take them to their second World Cup.

There is a final in Abu Dhabi.

There is another big clash in New Zealand when the two South Island teams clash – Crusaders, who were beaten last week, and the Highlanders, who won last week.
