Yet another concussion for George North.

Nathan Hughes was given a red card for this, did he deserve it?

So the Six Nations is over and we are back to the domestic competitions this weekend. We have Aviva Premiership, Top 14, Guinness Pro12, and Super Rugby too.  Here is a handy guide for our community members in the UK and Ireland showing what matches are on TV and where you can see them. Quite a few matches on so make your plans early!

RBS 6 Nations 2015 Round 5 summary

Unfortunately I'm quite late for the final 6 Nations summary, but despite being very busy with work I couldn't have missed this for any reason, especially considering how amazing last Saturday was (especially for the Irish).

The matches of the round were:
- Italy vs Wales > http://goo.gl/kIvRp3
- Scotland vs Ireland > http://goo.gl/OLkwwF
- England vs France > http://goo.gl/kFMtlK

The Highlanders relaxed, thinking they had it in the bag, letting in late Stormer's tries. They need to get a little more ruthless than that and learn to shut these games out.

The full time score is Highlanders 39 (24) Stormers 21 (7)

When a team fields a ringer
There can be nothing worse than turning up to a sporting fixture, irrespective of the sport, only to find that the opposition have a couple of players who have played at a significantly higher standard than either your or your team have.

He might have been better going to France than London Irish, and waited for a better team.
On the other hand, who knows what his reasons were?
It's definitely too late now to try out for a place in the English side for the World Cup.

The dust has settled - from an Irish perspective, what are some of the key points we can take heading into the World Cup after this year's Six Nations?

In a World Cup year, everything pales in comparison. The Championship win was great, but the lessons it brought are more valuable.
