How social media reacted to the second round of the Six Nations
Leicester Tigers winger Jonny May was the star of the show as England claimed a narrow win against Wales to preserve their unbeaten start to the Six Nations.
May scored two first-half tries, the first set up by the excellent Owen Farrell and the second from Joe Launchbury, while Bath Rugby’s Sam Underhill made a tackle for the ages to deny Wales a try.
Elsewhere, Saracens winger Sean Maitland scored a try as Scotland got back to winning ways with a thrilling 32-26 win against France.
Here’s the best of social media:
Danny Care became England’s most capped scrum-half and Harlequins teammate Chris Robshaw was the first to congratulate him

England v Wales was an energy-sapping contest
I am not physically fit enough to watch England v Wales.

Lewis Moody predicts a classic when England visit Scotland
Well @Scotlandteam will be wondering where this form was last week. If they sort there away form. They will be real contenders
