It was a great tournament for England as their seniors, women and Under-20s all won the Six Nations, the last two with Grand Slams.

There are no Tests this week, but in Europe club rugby presses on and so does the Super Rugby with its waning interest. Super Rugby certainly compared unfavourably with Six Nations rugby.

Rugby Europe's Under-20 champions kicks off in Bucharest on Sunday.
