Joe Schmidt's men have claimed the Championship Trophy with a game to spare after England lost to France on Saturday evening. According to the world rankings, England are still second behind the All Blacks; the truth is Ireland overtook them last March.
Ireland will seek to complete a Grand Slam at Twickenham next weekend, but a wounded England will not be short of motivation having been denied a clean sweep of its own in Dublin in similar circumstances 12 months ago. I was a bit alarmed how everybody was trying to play down the need to win with four tries to stay in contention for the tournament after Ireland's excellent win over Scotland earlier. Jacob Stockdale continued his remarkable strike rate with a first-half brace that took the young Ulster wing's tally to 10 tries in eight Tests.
It was the point when Ireland passed England to become the best team in Europe.
It was a day to remember for Rob Kearney as he produced a man-of-the-match performance from full-back. Joe van der Flier will be delighted. Against the run of play, the Scots took the first points from a Greig Laidlaw penalty.
"There's a number of guys who won't be playing in Twickenham, but are certainly right behind the squad". Power is force times mass, and it's how quickly you can accelerate it. "We are always going to go through this at some stage", England boss Jones said.
'I think they're going to be really risky, ' Schmidt added.
The best one can say about England is that they kept coming, just as they did at Murrayfield.
Kyrie Irving exits game versus Pacers with left knee soreness IN went ahead by as many as nine, and had a 93-76 lead with 2:13 to play before Boston rallied to tie 95-all with 37 seconds left.

"We had a couple of chances".
"We are three or four years behind Ireland in terms of what they've done and achieved over the last few years", Scotland coach Gregor Townsend said. Only they did not go anywhere - as if, in all the confusion, all they could think to do was put their heads down and charge harder. I thought James Ryan was huge again, he made 13 tackles and had 13 ball carries.
Blooding the likes of Garry Ringrose, Joey Carbery, Tadhg Furlong, CJ Stander and Jordan Larmour will have a lasting impact on the Irish game that will go through to 2023 and beyond.
"Obviously I'm very disappointed". Early in the game he did really well contesting the high ball, he nearly got away to create that score at one stage.
"It's a personal pride perspective because we probably haven't done what we set out to do and that doesn't sit well". "We'll have a look at England now and try to strike out again next week". "We're finding out all the issues that we need to fix before the World Cup". That's been done over the last couple of years, it's great that it's so seamless at times.
For the second game in a row, the English were beaten at the breakdown, they lost the physicality battle with their opponents and their discipline let them down.
