Ricky here with Sunday's Newsround.

It's 10 o clock.

0:00:130:00:15

First up, sport, and England are celebrating retaining

0:00:150:00:19

the Six Nations, but they didn't have it all their own way.

0:00:190:00:22

Ireland beat the champions in a gripping match in Dublin.

0:00:220:00:25

The victory for Ireland put an end to England's 18 match winning run

0:00:260:00:30

and stopped a new world record being set.

0:00:300:00:33

Wales weren't very happy with their loss to France,

0:00:330:00:36

where the match had an incredible 20 minutes of stoppage time!

0:00:360:00:39

France sealed the win with their last conversion and Wales

0:00:390:00:42

ended up 5th in the table.

0:00:420:00:46

It was better news for Scotland who won a third Six Nations match

0:00:460:00:50

in the same campaign for the first time in over 10 years.

0:00:500:00:53

They beat Italy 29-0 at Murrayfield.

0:00:530:01:00

Take a look at this rocket blasting off into space.

0:01:000:01:03

It took off at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station

0:01:030:01:05

in Florida in the US.

0:01:050:01:06

The rocket is carrying a satellite.

0:01:060:01:08

The mission was a success.

0:01:080:01:09

Next, there's some weird and wonderful sights in the sky

0:01:090:01:11

above China this weekend.

0:01:110:01:12

Check it out.

0:01:120:01:14

Gliding through the sky above China's Sichaun Province...

0:01:140:01:18

The annual kite festival there has started in style.

0:01:180:01:23

Butterflies, horses, wolves and wheels are just some

0:01:230:01:28

of the wacky designs soaring through the sky.

0:01:280:01:30

But it's this kite that has attracted the most attention.

0:01:300:01:33

The huge Chinese dragon is 48 meters long and took around

0:01:330:01:35

three months to make.

0:01:350:01:40

And could it be this kite be the wackiest?

0:01:400:01:42

The man is riding the bicycle and the wind makes the mans legs

0:01:420:01:45

move as though he is pedalling.

0:01:450:01:48

Lots of people have travelled to the area to watch these

0:01:480:01:50

wonderful high flyers.

0:01:500:01:55

Spiders...

0:01:550:01:56

Loads of people can't stand them.

0:01:560:01:57

But it turns out these guys have a VERY big appetite.

0:01:570:02:00

And actually it's doing us all a favour.

0:02:000:02:03

Arachnids.

0:02:030:02:06

These creepy, crawly beasties are many people's top phobia.

0:02:060:02:10

But maybe they should be known as our eight-legged friends.

0:02:100:02:13

I know, but hear me out on this one.

0:02:130:02:17

A new study revealed that spiders have a pretty big appetite.

0:02:170:02:22

Apparently they eat up to 800 million tonnes

0:02:220:02:24

of insects every year.

0:02:240:02:26

It might sound like they are greedy, but they are helping humans

0:02:260:02:30

and saving us from disease-carrying pests like flies and insects.

0:02:300:02:33

Without them, the world would be swamped with bugs.

0:02:330:02:35

So, for that, you have to give them a thumbs up.

0:02:350:02:43

This spectacular appetite forms a very important, if rather gross,

0:02:430:02:45

part of the food chain.

0:02:450:02:49

So what do you think about spiders now?

0:02:490:02:51

Still scared?

0:02:510:02:52

Me too.

0:02:520:02:56

That's all from me, Newsround's back at 12.20.
