Probably the most entertaining to watch - but didn't look high quality.

None of the games have been brilliant - but there's been plenty of tension.

Scotland-France, but I suspect the best is still to come.

All four tries were crackers (though the first at least owed a lot to missed tackles, I guess)

My favourite so far. Now the game is won, I can say that Hogg's missed tackle for the first try wasn't brilliant but he more than made up for it with the rest of his play during the game.

What high quality games have there been then? I can’t think of one where the rugby purist would be purring.

Best game isn't necessarily the most technically brilliant. Scotland-France was by far the most entertaining and compelling to watch. And it's very sporting of the French to ban most of their team to give the Italians a chance in the next game.

Ireland-Wales, Wales-Scotland (despite the scoreline) and Scotland-England were great games.

Scotland vs England. David vs Goliath. It won't be meaningful ultimately, but they'd been waiting for that one for a loooong time, and objectively put in a brilliant performance playing wide expansive Rugby when they had the ball and defending with incredible heart and determination esp at the bdown when England was coming at them relentlessly.

Second is France vs England (sorry England !! :P ) but after a heart-shatterer vs Ireland in R1, finally a victory that was more than just moral. The win against a top side an entire nation that not so long ago was winning Grand Slams and making the WC final, was so dearly longing for.

Great endeavor and passion shown by both sides.

Well done.

Scotland v England for me, then Ireland v Wales.

I enjoyed Scotland v France but there was some very ordinary rugby played that day too.

Worst game was France v England, by a country mile. Horrible game, it was like 80min of a educational rugby video on what not to do. x(

Did you not hear what Matt Williams said about Ireland ?

I agree 100% with him but Jack McGrath does not

Doesn't matter.

It's not a vintage 6 Nations:

No offence guys.
Boring and clinical isn't my thing.
Inept and exasperating is the new excitement....you remember the good old days?

I guess it was the best game of the Six Nations and also produced probably the best try scored by Maitland

Dream on. The best rugby try of the championship was the worked move leading to Stander scoring at the post.
And Furlongs shielded pass was pure skill.
Ripped England apart.
That was rugby.
