this was a game where little should be read into the quality (or lack of it).
England the Grand Slam continues to elude them.
Many of the team have been short of much top end rugby and the rustiness bled through the red shirts. So too did the confidence that they would win, no matter how mediocre their performance. And so a mediocre performance duly ensued and Wales won.
The attack is so much sharper than last season. Owen Farrell played on the gain line, Billy Twelvetrees did a lot right in shaping the middle, while up front, the second row partnership and Billy Vunipola were big, very big plusses, although the scrum was a bit of a worry. But that, like defence is easier to fix than an attack.
A rotten result for England but not a bad day
Round Three in Cardiff still appears a formidable barrier to Grand Slam dreams, though.
There was much of interest in Cardiff and Dublin but from the neutral perspective the centre stage was France, where the home side did exactly what they needed.
Cian Healy continues to look like the best loose head prop on the planet with his technique in the tight good but no match for his brilliance everywhere else. He is some player, but the half backs were very good as well.
They will have to be much better in Dublin where Ireland, on the basis of their performances against New Zealand in defeat and Guess Belt Uk Scotland in victory, should start favourites to repeat last season's win. That is not to say they will because improvement from Wales is almost certain.
CrumbleAs for Scotland, they were disappointing. The side knows how to hang onto ball but don't possess either the wit or personnel to do much with it.
The Wembley defeat to Wales and an awfully stupid performance against Scotland in Murrayfield were as much a vital part of the preparation for 2003 as the demolition of Ireland to win a Grand Slam in World Cup year.
The greatest European team of the professional age won the World Cup precisely because they learned what they could and couldn't do during the Six Nations. Only by testing the boundaries can a team reach its peak of excellence.

But Ireland and Joe Schmidt should be quietly content.
Italy, a little like England, lost the game but left with a whole bundle of positives Hermes Belt With H Buckle
Away from fortune France can point to a more ambitious game plan, an attack that benefitted from more freedom and less structure and an outstandingly quick, muscular individual effort from Yoann Huget. Bar being stepped once by Mike Brown he was immaculate.
The 'Paul O'Connell late injury' media panic I listened to on my way from St Pancras to my West Country home prior to kick off had listeners believing Scotland, with all their low ambition structure, could win in Dublin.
If winning the World Cup means more to an England fan than winning the Six Nations, it's better by far to have lost with an attack functioning than to have won by playing limited but safe rugby. The parallels with Clive Woodward's World Cup are obvious but in the obsession with winning, memories shorten.
This wasn't top gear, it was not up there with the All Blacks performance but Schmidt is not averse to getting his teams to peak when it matters. I'll take Ireland to win next week.
They won and ended an abject run of results. They were perhaps fortunate, with both the bounce of the ball and the final result but they'll be unlucky and Lady Luck will soon ride to England's side. That is sport.
The other boost for France was the cool finish to the fabulous finale by young Gael Fickou. He is being given a ridiculously hard time by Guy Noves in Toulouse. Hopefully Philippe Saint Andre will allow this immense talent to grow alongside Wesley Fofana into one of the world's best centre partnerships. Impatience in recent games gave way to passion as their anthem rebounded round and around the stadium, surely surging them towards a win that looked to be slipping from their grip as the second half progressed.
Scotland must start with him in the Calcutta Cup game on Saturday, but the one ray of comfort came from Stuart Hogg who was pure class. Every time he gets the ball there is threat. England will not wish to kick anything down his throat.
I wish the bookmakers would have overestimated the loss of the great man. Ireland dominated the line out and had Scotland in trouble at the scrum. With O' Connell back, Ireland's pack is going to test Wales, even in the absence of Sean O'Brien.
from their away defeat. Wales were not wound up to pitch but even so this was one of Italy's most balanced performances for some time including the odd inspired victory.
Whatever the short term shouters may scream, this was a rotten result but not a bad day for England. Jamie Roberts was sharp on the gain line and Toby Faletau again impressed but Hermes Belt Details
The post match media verdict dwelled on what they got wrong. I think they got a lot more right than wrong and on reviewing the game on Sunday afternoon (before luxuriating in Arsenal returning to the top of the Premier League) I think this was a positive negative.
If their set piece crumbles against England all the 'local derby' atmosphere in the world will not stop England beating them comfortably and England really must not think of the next match as a game to win but one in which if they perform well they will win and well.
The decision to omit Johnnie Beattie, an outstanding ball carrier for Montpellier, from a pack that has no ball carrying cannot help but make you wonder about the selection skills of Scott Johnson.
