It wasn’t the bruising encounter many anticipated but it laid down an ominous green marker for the rest.

Next, we had a resurgent Italy, fresh off a dismal Rugby World Cup group-stage exit and looking to bounce back under new head coach Gonzalo Quesada.

Cheered on by a raucous Roman support at the Stadio Olimpico, the Italians came agonisingly close to doing what they have never done before and beating England.

Rounding off the first weekend of fixtures, Wales and Scotland played out an epic encounter at the Principality Stadium.

For 43 minutes, the Scots looked like serious contenders for the tournament as they raced into a 27-0 lead at a venue they hadn’t won at in 22 years before a Welsh comeback brought them back down to reality with an almighty thud.

In the end, Gregor Townsend’s side hung on for a 27-26 win at the end of an all-time Six Nations classic.

But there’s little time to bask in the glory of victory or wallow in the misery of defeat as the tournament swiftly rolls onto next weekend, with three more mouth-watering fixtures which are sure to provide plenty more thrills and spills.
