Sensational England humble Ireland in Six Nations clash

Romain Ntamack has impressed with Toulouse

The England coach again took aim at Johnny Sexton over his relationship with referees, while their defence coach, John Mitchell grabbed headlines earlier this week when he said Ireland would try to bore the sh*t out of England.

England arrived in Dublin two years ago with Six Nations titles already in the bag, but was denied back-to-back Grand Slams and a record 19th consecutive victory.

Morgan Parra teams up with Clermont teammate Camille Lopez at half-back for just the second time at worldwide level and four years after their previous game together, in the 2015 Six Nations.

Jonny May insists England plan to "fire some shots" against Ireland coach Joe Schmidt's men.

"For me, the big difference between the two teams is that we've become a side that has probably forgotten how to lose and can dig deep like that", Gatland said.

After six years without a Six Nations start, Tuilagi is emphatically back and battering opponents.

"There is no doubt, going into the weekend, that Ireland are favourites and I'd be quite happy to say that".

Willemse, a 2012 junior world champion with the Baby Boks, arrived on French soil in 2014 as a 21-year-old, so fulfilling the three years of residency required by World Rugby regulations.

"There weren't many surprises in their team selection".

National Intelligence Dan Coats also said that Tehran continued to comply with the deal even after the U.S. withdrawal from it. The president also mentioned the negotiations between USA officials and the Taliban to potentially end the war in Afghanistan.

The elimination of upright and high tackles leads to more collisions where both the tackler and ball-carrier were bent at the waist.

Even a 3-0 home win would be viewed as scintillating by the Irish public, and when England are fully honest with themselves, they will admit that rather than boring, what they meant was that it is simply extremely hard to pinch the ball off an Ireland team in full flow.

"The autumn internationals is playing a team that's a little bit unknown".

Former Scotland scrum-half Lawson backed his "Celtic cousins" Ireland to get the job done and Zebo agreed wholeheartedly with him.

Cooney was on the end of a Sean Cronin break to dot down in the final minute but Ireland ran out of time and England handed Joe Schmidt his first ever home defeat in the Six Nations.

Wales would go on to finish second in the Six Nations reckoning in 2018, whereas France accumulated just two wins as their inconsistent offering on the worldwide stage continued to plague their progress in the rankings.

In a back row where Ireland enjoy an embarrassment of riches, Josh van der Flier kept the number seven jersey following an outstanding display against the All Blacks, with Sean O'Brien named on the bench on his return from injury.

The victor was full-back Jessy Tremouliere, who was injured towards the end of past year, and it will be a blow to the French squad that she is unavailable, along with a number of their other leading players who will be on sevens duty.

Expect seismic collisions as two of the global game's most physical exponents hurtle straight down each other's channel.
