Brian Moore's Full Contact, with Ben Ryan: 'England did not play to their strengths in Cardiff defeat'

Telegraph Sport

After round three of the Guinness Six Nations, Wales remain the only country able to win the Grand Slam after they beat England to make it a record breaking 12 wins in a row. Elsewhere France finally turned up against Scotland at the Stade de France while Ireland were given 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 Dan Biggar v Gareth Anscombe debate, we get an appraisal of Alun Wyn Jones, and Dafydd names his player to drop: George North. You will have to listen in to find out why.

Over to Paris where it was a 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 in the Stade de France and said the tactics were right from Gregor Townsend, they just were not 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 is not clicking for them with a large explanation going down to Jonathon Sexton and Conor Murray just not firing as they normally do.

Finally, we speak with Wasps Ladies coach Giselle Mather on the Women's Six Nations.
