Round Two of the Six Nations has come and gone and Ireland are still in search of their first win of the tournament.

The weekend failed to sparkle, with the Wales-Scotland encounter in Cardiff being the highlight of this round of fixtures. France and England are the only teams with a perfect record after two games, but Wales remain in contention too.

Here are the highlights (and lowlights) from the weekend where Ireland's hopes of a three-in-a-row evaporated. 

France 10-9 Ireland 

Wales 27-23 Scotland

Italy 9-40 England

The teams now have next weekend off before Round Three sees France travel to Cardiff to face Wales on the Friday night. On Saturday, Italy welcome Scotland to Rome and Ireland are in Twickenham for a match against England.
