Another busy day in the rugby union game as we publish our Six Nations Team of the Week and Who’s hot and who’s not.

What’s on the site

There’s five Englishman included in our team, including George Ford at fly-half, while we also bring you five takeaways from the Six Nations weekend.

Who’s hot and who’s not is here plus we have the inside story on Wales wing sensation Louis Rees-Zammit from Gloucester’s junior academy manager.

Elsewhere, there’s video highlights from the Ireland v France fixture from yesterday and action from the weekend’s Premiership matches in England.

What’s in the news

England and Wasps back-row Jack Willis has released a message after he suffered a horrific injury in their Six Nations game against Italy on Saturday.

Meanwhile, former Ulster and Ireland fly-half David Humphreys insists their next two games against Italy and Scotland are now “must-win” fixtures.

What’s on social media

Remember this? No one was expecting this story back in 2010 as former Wales number eight Andy Powell believed this was a smart idea at the time.

What’s on TV

With the Six Nations taking a week’s break, the focus is centred on the Premiership and PRO14 from Friday. BT Sport will be televising the former, kicking off with Bath v Gloucester, while Premier Sports has Dragons v Leinster and Glasgow Warriors v Ulster.
