‘If England carry on the way they are then they will cause problems for any side’

The second round of the Six Nations has come and gone with England backing up a stellar performance in Ireland with a resounding victory over hapless France, the Welsh second string ground out a win away in Italy, while Scotland were again left to rue their missed opportunities against Ireland. Alongside Brian Moore to discuss it all is the former England and Lions fly-half Rob Andrew.

Brian and Rob discuss the way England were able to capitalise on French confusion to secure victory in half an hour at Twickenham saying that England showed how athletic they are across the pitch.

Up to Scotland who blamed the referee on the day but really only had themselves to look to for not providing more of a competitive match for Ireland. Their flanker John Barclay joins to say it was a frustrating game but if they can get everyone fit again then they are a match for any side.

As for the winning side, Ireland, former centre Paddy Wallace says the weight of expectation is causing problems for his old team and the loss to England may well have been a blessing in disguise. 

Wales are England’s next opponents but the question mark over them is who to start at half back following an unconvincing performance by Dan Bigger over Italy. We ask former fly-half James Hook for his thoughts on Wales’ squad selections and how they can defeat England.
