What a tournament, there have been some amazing games, and some bizarre ones. Lots of cards this tournament too!

Obviously I'm happy as a Wales fan, but it's ironic that the game where Wales played their best by a long run was the game they lost. This also being the best game of the tournament from my point of view.

France look incredibly dangerous and I think they could really be the team to beat over the next few years.

Nice to see Scotland pushing forwards too.

Not sure what to say about Ireland, they're a bit in no-mans land at the moment, but always could come out and win a tournament, definitely dangerous, and unfortunate to lose against Wales & France.

England need a re-haul. But then again. They'll always be there as a top global team unfortunately though, they just have so much more money in their domestic leagues and a wider pool of players.

Italy are a bit of a joke now, in the early 2010's they were winning games ever year, now they're not a potential hiccup at all.

My main takeaways from this tournament are:

Wales under Pivac are an exciting prospect but there are still plenty of weaknesses to work on

Scotland are the real deal and definitely in the mix I'm 2022

France are overrated at the moment but have a huge ceiling

England have been found out under Eddie Jones and need to change him

This has quickly become my favourite meme format of the 6N :lol:

I feel this is a little unfair. Their first 2 or 3 games of the tournament showed some real promise from them, and evidence of real development, both in terms of individually skilled players, and wider game tactics. Sure they're still not translating to wins right now, but there's promise there. Their biggest undoing overall was mentality and morale. As soon as their heads drop, their game falls apart. They're still a relatively young side though, and can pick that up for sure.

OK tournament overall, plenty of closely contested games which is good, seems like the gap in quality of the top five has really closed as well. :D

I suppose the downside for me is that the wrong team won - France played better over the tournament but absolutely buckled under the pressure at the end.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.
