Brian Moore: Idiotic Marler only has himself to blame for potential ban

Monday, 9 March

There's just one round left in the 2020 Six Nations and as fears over Coronavirus spread across the continent we will be denied the traditional "Super Saturday" after both England and Ireland have their games postponed.

On the pitch there was plenty to talk about in a thrilling encounter between England and Wales at Twickenham. Former England back row and World Cup winner Maggie Alphonsi is alongside Brian this week to pick the bones out of yet another win for Eddie Jones.

Despite a thrilling game on the pitch, it will forever be remembered for a bizarre incident between England prop Joe Marler and Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones. Brian says Marler's behaviour is idiotic in the current climate and that he should accept whatever ban is thrown at him in the wake of the incident.

As for Wales it's now three defeats on the spin for them for the first time since 2007. Former centre Mark Taylor joins the show and says there's no need t panic just yet after a valiant effort at Twickenham.

Scotland turned in a fantastic performance against tournament favourites France at Murrayfield. Their win blows open the race for title (what's left of it) and we speak with former Scotland scrum half Rory Lawson about whether Gregor Townsend can make it three wins from three in the final game of the tournament.

Elsewhere we get Maggie's thoughts on another crushing victory for England's women and ask what more can be done to help the game grow and we get to you questions too.
