Europe's international competitions burst back into life at the weekend with two tight wins and a draw in the RBS Six Nations and Georgia maintaining their lead in the European Nations Cup Division 1A.

Europe's elite international competitions burst back into life in six countries at the weekend with tight wins for France and England and a draw between Ireland and Wales in the RBS Six Nations, while Georgia, Romania and Russia scored wins in the European Nations Cup Division 1A.




In the European Nations Cup, Georgia - so impressive during Rugby World Cup 2015 and already guaranteed their place at the 2019 tournament - had to come back from an early 7-0 deficit against Germany but went on to score a handsome 59-7 win in Tbilisi.


Romania, also competitive at RWC 2015, continued their 2015 form to beat Portugal 39-14 and strengthen their position at second in the standings.


Russia, like Portugal with players in sevens series action in Sydney, needed all of their resolve to see off Spain, 22-20. The Spaniards' form and fortunes improved drastically in 2015 and they still look strong contenders for second place.


None of the six ENC teams moved in the World Rugby Rankings as a result of the weekend's matches.


For the first time fans around the world were able to watch the European Nations Cup matches on a dedicated platform after Rugby Europe launched rugbyeurope.tv as part of plans to grow the structure and stature of the continent's second and third tiers.
