So, how was that for a World Cup taster?
Ireland and Scotland served up an entertaining, if not technically sound, starter. The Irish were forced to dig in but came out 28-22 winners in Dublin.
And then England showed flashes of attacking flair to get supporters salivating, but looked messy as it dragged on and did just enough to overcome France 19-14.
Join us again next Saturday, when we start with Italy hosting Scotland, and France and England go at it again in Paris, with what will probably be stronger looking sides.
Until then, enjoy the rest of your weekend.
