Well done England!

If you'd offered me 2nd place for France at the beginning of the year I'd've bitten your hand off but I do feel slightly disappointed that they just missed out on the title. But I guess this is a team in development and this has been the weirdest year.

An odd game and Ireland were poor in the line-out but there were some great tries and it was lovely to see France run and chuck the ball around like that :-) I did miss the sound of the crowd chanting "Allez Les Blleus" and singing the Marseillaise though.

Too many Irish mistakes, especially at their own lineout.

England have to thank the Scots for beating the French pre-lockdown. Anyway, the Triple Crown and the Six Nations title can't be bad!

Good weekend of rugby, poor results for some but cannot argue with the overall winners.

Dupont has come on leaps and bounds and Ntamack is just incredible for someone so slight. He seems to absorb tackles like Bendyman, if there is such a thing.

Good to appreciate AWJ's achievement even if it was a loss.

Ben Youngs seems to shrug off criticism and produce a performance when it matters.

Has Sexton seen the end of the tunnel coming a bit closer, still a fine player but I think he must be feeling his age and the knocks catching up with him.

I hope Cian Healey is OK, he looked groggy after he had scored, let alone when he threw up.

TMW the English bench didn't make a difference as they kept the no. 10 the same. Old broken drum time, but Farell has to be one of the least creative, most one-dimensional 10s in the modern international game. He just doesn't have the wit to observe the games, react and make things happen.

Good to see the old Youngs back again. He seems to have benefitted from the break.

Suppose I should be happy with the title, but the whole thing, maybe unsurprisingly, elt like a damp squib to me.

Well done England. The weirdest 6 Nations ever, but glad Scotland got a couple of decent results. Showed some glimpses of talent, but never consistent enough. France were a joy to watch, in parts!

I'm glad professional support is allowed, even without crowds, as it's still great skill and competition and entertainment. :-) G

I don’t feel international game is the same without crowds.

Compare with the Southern Hemisphere games with crowds it’s totally different

I thought it was great to see the rugby back. Not the same without crowds and disjointed because of the break, but given everything els going on a real lift! And we won!
