Seven months after it was due to conclude, the longest Six Nations in history is finally over.

Joining Brian in the studio to look back on the tournament is former Fiji Sevens coach and Olympic Gold Medalist Ben Ryan.

Congratulations to England who have lifted the trophy for a third time in five years after getting their required bonus point over Italy on the final day. A “proud” Eddie Jones says attention will now turn onto the upcoming autumn international series as he looks to develop his young squad even further.

Elsewhere, it was a tournament to forget for Wales who finished fifth and registered their fifth defeat in a row when losing to Scotland on the final day. We chat with former Wales and Lions fly-half James Hook to discuss the feeling from Welsh supporters surrounding new head coach Wayne Pivac, who has struggled since taking charge.

We also assess the campaigns of both France and Ireland who played out an entertaining finale in Paris on Saturday night, many think that the French were the most deserved winners of the tournament this year but Brian believes there are still holes in their game.

And we hear from the British and Irish Lions head coach Warren Gatland who’s been speaking for the first time in the build up the 2021 tour of South Africa.
