as It means Ireland remain in title contention on the final weekend while England must discover how much they have left in the tank as they head to France with the aim of finishing third.
On Friday night, France moved to within sight of a first Six Nations title, and Grand Slam, since 2010 after beating Wales 13-9 at the Principality Stadium. Victory over England in Paris next week will see Les Bleus crowned kings of Europe just 18 months before hosting the World Cup.
And finally, Chris Harris scored two first-half tries as Scotland overcame a sticky start to record a convincing bonus-point 33-22 victory over Italy in their match in Rome on Saturday.
