Ricky here with Sunday's Newsround.
It's 10 o clock.
First up, sport, and England are celebrating retaining
the Six Nations, but they didn't have it all their own way.
Ireland beat the champions in a gripping match in Dublin.
The victory for Ireland put an end to England's 18 match winning run
and stopped a new world record being set.
Wales weren't very happy with their loss to France,
where the match had an incredible 20 minutes of stoppage time!
France sealed the win with their last conversion and Wales
ended up 5th in the table.
It was better news for Scotland who won a third Six Nations match
in the same campaign for the first time in over 10 years.
They beat Italy 29-0 at Murrayfield.
Take a look at this rocket blasting off into space.
It took off at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station
in Florida in the US.
The rocket is carrying a satellite.
The mission was a success.
Next, there's some weird and wonderful sights in the sky
above China this weekend.
Check it out.
Gliding through the sky above China's Sichaun Province...
The annual kite festival there has started in style.
Butterflies, horses, wolves and wheels are just some
of the wacky designs soaring through the sky.
But it's this kite that has attracted the most attention.
The huge Chinese dragon is 48 meters long and took around
three months to make.
And could it be this kite be the wackiest?
The man is riding the bicycle and the wind makes the mans legs
move as though he is pedalling.
Lots of people have travelled to the area to watch these
wonderful high flyers.
Loads of people can't stand them.
But it turns out these guys have a VERY big appetite.
And actually it's doing us all a favour.
These creepy, crawly beasties are many people's top phobia.
But maybe they should be known as our eight-legged friends.
I know, but hear me out on this one.
A new study revealed that spiders have a pretty big appetite.
Apparently they eat up to 800 million tonnes
of insects every year.
It might sound like they are greedy, but they are helping humans
and saving us from disease-carrying pests like flies and insects.
Without them, the world would be swamped with bugs.
So, for that, you have to give them a thumbs up.
This spectacular appetite forms a very important, if rather gross,
part of the food chain.
So what do you think about spiders now?
That's all from me, Newsround's back at 12.20.
