Six Nations: England beat Ireland 32-20 in Dublin

By Tom Fordyce

From the sectionRugby Union
Six Nations: England beat Grand Slam champions Ireland 32-20

Ireland: (10) 20
Tries: Healy, Cooney Pens: Sexton (2) Cons: Sexton (2)
England: (17) 32
Tries: May, Daly, Slade (2) Pens: Farrell (2) Cons: Farrell (3)


England pulled off arguably the most impressive victory of the Eddie Jones era as they ran in four tries to inflict Ireland's first Six Nations defeat in Dublin in six years.

England had led 17-10 at half-time with tries from Jonny May and the impressive Elliot Daly separated by Cian Healy's burrowing score from close in, and could have been further ahead.

And with their defence outstanding, their tactical kicking precise and the back three rock-solid under the high ball, they added two more opportunistic tries in the second period through the livewire Henry Slade.

Ireland had seen off world champions New Zealand in an unbeaten autumn but their dream of consecutive Grand Slams came crashing down under a thunderous English assault.
