After one of 2 fallow weeks, the Six Nations is back with a vengeance this weekend. And round 3 is derby week!
First up, a look at the table after the first 2 sets of games. As in the previous two seasons, England sit top with a 100% record, but Ireland have also won both their games. Wales and Scotland have one win a piece, whilst France and Italy are both winless so far.

The final match of the weekend is the big one - the Calcutta Cup between Scotland and England at BT Murrayfield! Vern Cotter's side were annihilated at Twickenham last year, but Gregor Townsend will hope for a better performance at home.
