Brian Moore: England didn't play to their strengths

Monday, 25 February

After Round Three of the Six Nations it is only Wales who can win the Grand Slam after they ousted England to make it a record breaking 12 wins in a row. Elsewhere France finally turned up with Scotland yet to find the Stade de France, and Ireland had a run for their money against Italy. Alongside Brian Moore to discuss it all is Ben Ryan. This week's big topics from the Principality included whether England have a Plan B, the inaccuracy throughout the second half from England, and the trials and triumphs of Kyle Sinckler. As for the Welsh side, we speak with former Wales and Lions back Dafydd James on Biggar v Anscombe debate, we get an appraisal of Alun Wyn Jones, and Dafydd names his player to drop: George North. You'll have to listen in to find out why. Over to Paris where it was a familiar case of Groundhog Day for the Scots against the French who finally picked their players in their nominated positions and came out with their first win of the tournament. Former scrum half Rory Lawson was there in the Stade de France and said the tactics were right from Townsend, they just weren't executed correctly by the players. As for Ireland it was close run in Rome - and that was just their escort to the stadium! We invite former hooker Shane Byrne on to try and tell us what isn't clicking for them with a large explanation going down to Sexton and Murray just not firing as they normally do. Finally, we speak with Wasps Ladies coach Giselle Mather on the Women's Six Nations.
