Try: Wales 25-3 Scotland (Jamie Roberts)
15:29: Wales think they have a third try but there is an offside in the build-up. Scotland living dangerously.
15:26: Scott Williams takes a brilliant catch then shows brilliant pace to get past two Scotland defenders and feed Mike Phillips, who finds George North who beats the final defender to go under the posts. Superb try.
Try: Wales 18-3 Scotland (George North)
15:20: Greg Laidlaw misses his second penalty of the afternoon to add injury to insult to Cardiff. Hogg followed the injured Kelly Brown to the sidelines for the remainder of the afternoon and Scotland are sitting ducks to a Wales onslaught.
15:16: Scotland down to 14-men after a horror shoulder barge from Stuart Hogg on Dan Biggar. At first the Scottish wing was shown a yellow card but after seeing replays on the big screen, Jérôme Garces changes his decision and shows Hogg a red card. What an uphill battle for the visitors now. Biggar picks himself up and hammers over the resulting penalty.
Red card: Stuart Hogg (Scotland)
15:10: Three goals and a try with minutes of each other. Wales storm into the lead over Scotland as Leigh Halfpenny's replacement Liam Williams finishes off a nine-phase move by going over in the corner. Elsewhere, Andy Carroll has done his World Cup hopes a power of good with his first goal since April. Southampton and Swansea's early goals have added to Norwich and West Brom's relegation fears.
Goal: Southampton 1-0 Norwich City (Morgan Schneiderlin)
Goal: Stoke City 0-1 West Ham United (Andy Carroll)
Try: Wales 8-3 Scotland (Liam Williams)
Goal: Swansea City 1-0 West Bromwich Albion (Roland Lamah)
15:01: Matches across the country in the Premier League are close to getting underway. All the goals as they go in as well as updates from Wales v Scotland.
Penalty: Wales 3-3 Scotland (Dan Biggar)
14:55: Very good start from Scotland following the heart-break of last weekend against France. After Weir kicks to the corner from a penalty 50 meters out, Laidlaw goes for the posts as Wales are offside and he puts the visitors ahead.
Penalty: Wales 0-3 Scotland (Greg Laidlaw)
14:48: The penultimate match of the Six Nations in under way in Cardiff.
14:47: Try telling Wales and their supporters this afternoon's match means nothing. The Millennium Stadium is rocking ahead of kick-off where a much-changed Wales take on an injury-hit Scotland.
14:42: So attention now turns to Cardiff where Wales face Scotland in a dead-rubber on the final Six Nations weekend. We also have six Premier League games on the way with all the goals as they go in across the country.
14:40: So Manchester City bounce back from being dumped out of the FA Cup and Champions League to beat Hull City. David Silva scored the first and made the second for Edin Dzeko.
Full time: Hull City 0-2 Manchester City
14:36: Game, set and match. Silva feeds Dzeko, who draws McGregor and tucks into the back of the net. 10-man City are going to close the gap to Chelsea.
Goal: Hull City 0-2 Manchester City (Edin Dzeko)
14:31: Into the final 10 minutes at the KC Stadium and Hull are the main protagonists once again. City do break and Dzeko is denied by McGregor. This looks like an away win all over I am afraid Hull fans.
14:23: Manchester City should be out of sight. Silva works the ball back to Fernandinho who fluffs his lines from seven yards. Let off for Hull.
14:19: England end with a flourish but it's not enough to eclipse Ireland's points difference advantage. Captain Chris Robshaw scores a seventh try at the death and with Farrell adding the extras England go past 50 points but Italy's breakaway try stifled them. Ireland need only beat France in Paris, for the second time in 48 years to claim the Six Nations title.
Full time: Italy 11-52 England
Try: Italy 11-50 England (Chris Robshaw)
14:14: Hull want a penalty after Joe Hart comes out to meet George Boyd. Clear dive from the former Peterborough United man and the England goalkeeper is furious as Lee Mason is forced to come to seperate the two players.
14:10: Javi Garcia moved into centre back after Vincent Kompany's dismissal and had to be on hand to turn the ball behind from Jelavic's cross.
14:05: Time for an update from the KC Stadium where Hull are dominating possession but can't find a way through Manchester City. Shane Long headed wide early on and Jelavic has just wasted a chance after being played onside by the City back-four. Intriging last half an hour in prospect.
14:02: Manu Tuilagi marks his return with a try but disaster for England as Sarto claims an interception and goes over to leave them 15 points adrift of Ireland.
Try: Italy 11-45 England (Leonardo Sarto)
Converted try: Italy 6-45 England (Manu Tuilagi)
13:53: England come out of the other side of some Italy pressure with another try as they to within 17 points of Ireland. Twelvetress goes the long way around and when the ball is lost sideways Vunipola is on hand to touchdown from close range.
Try: Italy 6-38 England (Mako Vunipola)
13:50: We're back under way at the KC Stadium.
13:49: Very scrappy in Rome as England hunt down more points. Manu Tuilagi is on for Luther Burrell in one of two changes but Italy are staging something of a revival. Let's hope Stuart Lancaster doens't come to regret those changes.
13:44: Italy are down to 14 men after Bortolami is yellow carded for offside and England take full advantage. From the scrum, Brown feeds Nowell who goes over for his first England try after a wonderfully worked move. Farrell, as ever, adds the conversion. Five out of five for him.
Try: Italy 6-29 England (Jack Nowell)
Sin-bin: Marco Bortolami (Italy)
13:36: So despite Vincent Kompany's red card, David Silva's goal has Manchester City ahead and on course to close the gap to leaders Chelsea. Hull have huffed and puffed without possessing a real threat and arguablly have been more disrupted by the red card than the visitors.
Half time: Hull City 0-1 Manchester City
13:30: Chance for Hull. Jake Livermore recieves the ball 25 yards out and with more space in front of the City back four he hits goalwards but the ball flies wide.
13:27: Teams out for the second half in Rome. England need to pile on the points in the second half if they are to give themselves a shot of the title. Italy looked weary at the end of the first half. Second half under way.
13:23: Ball in the net for Hull but it's chalked off for offside. Jelavic heads the ball back for David Meyler who lashes the ball home into the top corner, but his Croatian team-mate was beyond the City defence when he became involved. The score stays 1-0.
13:21: It's been all go at the KC Stadium this afternoon. A red card for Vincent Kompany and a stunning goal from David Silva has contributed to a thrilling first half an hour. City could have been two up but Pablo Zabaleta's volley bounces off the bar and away from danger.
Half time: Italy 6-24 England
13:13: England reclaim the ball almost immediately and they go over for their third try of the first half. Farrel offloads to Brown on the shoulder and the Harlequins man storms over the line for this second try of the afternoon. Farrell adds the extras.
Try: Italy 6-22 England (Mike Brown)
13:11: Italy have been a real spent force in the second quarter of the first half and England have dominated. Some really nice offloading in the tackle before Chris Robshaw runs into Mike Brown and the hosts get the penalty.
13:06: Ample pressure from England in Rome and they finally break through with less than 10 minutes of the first half remaining. Owen Farrell goes over for his second international try. He adds the extras to given england an 11-point lead.
Converted try: Italy 6-17 England (Owen Farrell)
13:03: City down to ten-men for less than two minutes and they go ahead at Hull City. David Silva picks the ball up 25 yards from goal, and without looking up curls beautifully beyond Allan McGregor.
Goal: Hull City 0-1 Manchester City (David Silva)
12:59: Jelavic pick-pockets Vincent Kompany and is away on goal. The Belgian tugs him back and the Hull man is down. Referee Lee Mason shows a straight red card. The City captain is fuming.
Red card: Vincent Kompany (Manchester City)
Penalty: Italy 6-10 England (Luciano Orquera)
Italy win a penalty as England are adjudged to have collapsed the scrum. Orquera goes for goal and cuts the posts in half.
12:53: England stay ahead but it could have been so much worse. Jonny May drops Burrell's pass and Leonardo Sarto pounces and Owen Farrell is forced to make a try saving tackle five meters from the line. At the KC Stadium meanwhile, Jelavic gets in behind the City back-four but his pull-back is hacked away by Demichelis.
12:49: Under way at the KC Stadium too. City have followed victory in the League Cup final by exiting the FA Cup and the Champions League and host a Hull side bouyed by reaching the FA Cup semi-final for the first time since 1930.
12:48: England draw level through Farrell and they waste little time storming into the lead. Burrell feeds Brown, who runs round the Italian defence and touches down in the corner. Farrell adds the extras.
Try: Italy 3-8 England (Mike Brown)
Penalty: Italy 3-3 England (Owen Farrell)
12:44: So England's task is made all the more difficult as Italy hit the front. Meanwhile, the teams are out at the KC Stadium where Hull are hosting Manchester City.
Penalty: Italy 3-0 England (Luciano Orquera)
12:39: We're under way in Rome and it's Italy who are on top early on.Two Mike Brown handling errors in England's half gives Italy good field position. England are penalised at the scrum for standing up and Italy have an early penalty 40 meters from the line.
12:31: Anthems being sung in Rome. Can't help but love that Italian anthem. Glorious day in the capital.
12:24: Italy and England kick-off in Rome in 10 minutes or so and after beating Wales last weekend, Stuart Lancaster's team require a heavy win to put pressure on Ireland and France. A victory of over 50 points would put pressure on Joe Schmidt's side in Paris. Anything other than a win, and the Six Nations title is gone. Italy have honing in on the wooden spoon but welcome back captain Sergio Parisse today.
Hull City v Manchester City
Hull City: McGregor, Chester, Davies, Figueroa, Elmohamady, Livermore, Huddlestone, Meyler, Rosenior, Long, Jelavic.
Manchester City: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Clichy, Javi Garcia, Fernandinho, Silva, Toure, Nasri, Dzeko.
12:14: It's difficult to know where to look this Saturday afternoon. This lunchtime we'll be concentrating on goings on in Rome and Hull. First, Italy host an England side who know only victory can keep them in the hunt for the Six Nations title, while a victory of over 50 points will pile pressure on France and Ireland later. In the Premier League, Hull City host a Man City side who are in desperate need of a win to keep apace in the title race. Chelsea have a nine-point lead at the top but Manuel Pellegrini's side have three games in hand.
12:00: The weather has come out for a stunning sporting weekend. We have eight Premier League games to feast upon including Hull City v Manchester City and Aston Villa v Chelsea. Meanwhile, it's the final weekend in the Six Nations, with England, Ireland and France all going for the title. We are jam packed on this Saturday afternoon and we wouldn't have it any other way. Strap. In.
