The Six Nations returned with a bang this weekend as Wales, Scotland and England all emerged victorious in the opening round of fixtures.

Wales and France got things underway on Friday evening, with Warren Gatland’s side staging a remarkable second-half turn around to earn a 24-19 win at Stade de France.

The remaining four teams began their respective campaigns on Saturday, with Scotland entertaining Italy and defending champions Ireland hosting England.

Scotland romped to a 33-20 bonus-point win against the Italians, with Ireland suffering a home defeat in the competition for the first time in six years as they went down 32-20 against Eddie Jones’ England.

There were plenty of stand-out performances in the opening round of fixtures, so here at Read Rugby Union, we’ve decided to name our ‘Team of the Week’ for round one.
