  1. That's your lot

    Thanks for being with us yesterday and today, they were actually three pretty entertaining games of rugby. Join us again next Saturday where the final sentences will be written and the full-stop applied. Night.

  2. England buck the trend

    Six Nations statistician Stuart Farmer with a remarkable fact after England claimed the Championship with a game to go: 

  3. Superb Scotland

    Scotland fly-half Chris Cusiter congratulates his team-mates on Twitter:

  4. Final fling

    Just to recap, next week's action all takes place on the Saturday and consists of Wales-Italy at 14:30 GMT, Ireland-Scotland at 17:00 and France-England at 20:00. England already have the title but could clinch their first Grand Slam since 2003. Italy already have the wooden spoon stowed away in the utensil drawer.

  5. Reaction to England winning the Six Nations

    England's players in a huddle

    "Eddie Jones promised us changes and he’s delivered. More importantly his side have responded to the questions he’s asking. I’ve enjoyed the heads-up rugby. If you produce quick ball you can look for the space and really enjoy it. They are deserved champions.“    

  6. Murrayfield bouncing

    Scotland 29-18 France

    Former Scotland back Gregor Townsend is celebrating:

  7. 'England can win the title for many years'

    Thomas Castaignede

    Former France international on Six Nations Forum

    "There are no other teams near England and if they keep the same group of players together they can win the tournament for many years. They have quality, are very well  organised and Eddie Jones brings confidence."

  8. Reaction to England winning the Six Nations

    Thomas Castaignede

    Former France international on Six Nations Forum

    "England deserve better than the title, they deserve the Grand Slam. And France can show what they can do against that side next week. I’ve been really impressed with England and the way they’re playing."

  9. 'Eddie Jones does all the right things'

    Jonathan Davies

    Former dual code international on Six Nations Forum

    Eddie Jones

    "There's a confidence that oozes from this England side, as if Eddie Jones says 'I'll take all the flack and pressure and you guys do the job you're paid to do and play rugby'. He does all the right things – he praises [World Cup captain] Chris Robshaw and says he's still one of the key players in his squad. They have balance and a great strength in depth."

  10. 'Scotland confident for Ireland trip'

    Scotland 29-18 France

    Chris Paterson

    Former Scotland international

    "Scotland have to do exactly the same again, and improve. That's the way forward. They can't be conservative. 

    "You don't always get the accolades when you lose but in the first two games there was some good stuff. They will take confidence forward to Dublin."

  11. Stat attack

    Scotland had the lion's share of both possession (59%) and territory (57%) and also turned France over on eight occasions. France had 14 offloads, but also made an awful lot of handling errors.

    Scotland try-scorer Duncan Taylor made the most metres, 79 of them, while Scotland flanker John Hardie and French lock Yoann Maestri were the top tacklers, with 10 each. 

  12. Scotland stop the rot

    Scotland fans celebrate

    The PofG: Great to see Scotland doing themselves justice, fine performance & well done England, promise also being fulfilled.

    Bradley Hill: Thank you so much Scotland. Let's hope we repay you by beating France so you can stay in the top three.

    Craig Stewart-Toner: I am very very happy at the moment. Scotland do the double! Stuart Hogg was totally world class!

  14. Post update

    Stuart Hogg and Tim Visser

    “Stuart Hogg has got an edge about him and you don’t want to lose that edge. It’s what makes him a special player. He’s more mature than when he started. I think this was his best game so far.”

  15. You're welcome, England

  16. Jones on 'fantastic' England achievement

    So Scotland beat France to hand England the Six Nations. How does England boss Eddie Jones feel about that?

    BBC Sport's Sonja McLaughlin has spoken to the man himself at their Pennyhill Park training base: 

    "I feel a bit mixed," said Jones after Scotland's win. "It's nice to win the Championship but as a team we feel like we haven't achieved anything yet.

    "I've just seen Dylan Hartley. We didn't know whether to shake hands, hug or just get on with business. We decided to shake hands and get on with it.

    "It's a fantastic achievement. It's pretty much the same squad as the one that went to the World Cup. I don't know what wasn't there before. But we've made sure the players are responsible, we play in a style that suits our resources and the players enjoy themselves."

    Time for a celebration then?

    "We'll have a normal team meeting and then we might go down the bar and have a couple of beers," added Jones.

  17. 'We have good ingredients'

    FT: Scotland 29-18 France

    Scotland head coach Vern Cotter on BBC One: "That was a tough game. We lost our play-maker, Finn Russell, early but kept our shape and built well from an early lead. Our set-piece was good and they showed character. They are good ingredients if you want to get somewhere in the game. The guys are a humble bunch but they will want to enjoy this.

    "I think the game was built piece by piece. You need a good scrum to do that and even though we were under pressure at times they kept their heads. All in all we’re happy."

    Scotland's players celebrate

    "I remember the Scotland game against England and they made so many errors – today there were three. That’s a massive transformation. I think they’ve backed up a good victory against Italy with a good performance here and a win against a decent French side."

  19. Red Button

    In a few moments there will be a forum on the Red Button. In fact, I believe we're already on the Red Button, so do please have a look and send us any thoughts on what you've seen this weekend and, indeed, the final weekend.

    Scotland's players celebrate at full-time

    Ben Wire: Best result of the tournament so far by a mile. Best performance by any team. Well done Scotland!  A performance that sums up the spirit, heart and soul of rugby. Unless you're a France fan.

    Hoosier Scot: Phenomenal result for Scotland today! Confidence high we need to finish strong in Ireland against our Celtic brothers!!

    Stephanie Latta: Visser's try surely one of the best tries of the tournament?
