5 things we learned from the Six Nations this weekend

:Headline: 5 things we learned from the Six Nations this weekend:
Gatland admitted his Wales side had enjoyed a slice of luck against Scotland.
PA | 6mo

Wins for Wales, England and Ireland have set up an intriguing final round to the 2019 Guinness Six Nations with Warren Gatland's Grand Slam-chasing team favourites to clinch the title.

Here, Press Association Sport examines five things we learned from the penultimate series of fixtures.

Power play

Eddie Jones knows that deploying the Pacific Islands trio of Joe Cokanasiga, Manu Tuilagi and Ben Te'o can be devastatingly effective, as demonstrated in the 57-14 demolition of Italy, but it will take a more competent defence than that fielded by the hapless Azzurri to prove it is a viable option against elite opposition.

Wing wonders

In Cokanasiga and Jonny May, England have two box office wings who can conquer the world. The Fijian-born Cokanasiga swatted aside Italian defenders with ease, carrying the ball in one hand to cause Jones palpitations, while at the same time thrilling Twickenham. And May's every involvement draws a gasp of anticipation from home fans who marvel at his electric pace.

Another score to settle
