For us, the image of the weekend came from the smart phone of a hack, snapping his colleague - a professional photographer - on bended knee, placing a rugby ball and bottle of hand sanitiser side by side on a chair in the press room of the Principality Stadium. To let the picture tell the story.

A little while earlier Scotland's captain's run had been underway when the decision was made to park the Six Nations game with Wales the next day.

In this insane season of cancellations, controversy and postponements, that late late show was appropriate. Not as good as Mrs Brown's Boys replacing Match of the Day on BBC, but not bad.
