Ireland stand in way of England beating world record

The name came following an incident involving Ant Mc Partlin and a shop assistant at Augusta

Our preview pack for Saturday's RBS 6 Nations finale between Ireland and England at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin includes team news, predictions, statistics and more.

Victory on Saturday would take England past New Zealand's tier-one record of 18 successive wins, while claiming back-to-back grand slams, and is a feat not even the World Cup winning team under Clive Woodward could manage.

Eddie Jones (England): "Any team that beats the All Blacks is a very good team, so we know that and most teams in the Six Nations have one big performance".

England fans will expect nothing less than a third Grand Slam of the weekend.

England won the championship in emphatic style against a team that have been incredible this tournament but were unable to hold back the English torrent.

"But, we haven't come near to 18 wins in a row".

Ireland led after Murray scored the opening try, but England came out on top courtesy of quick-fire scores from Anthony Watson and Mike Brown, as well as 11 points from the boot of Owen Farrell. They were facing a resurgent Scotland, who were themselves looking to win their first Triple Crown since 1990.

The 61-21 scoreline was the biggest winning margin in the fixture, which dates back to 1871 and is the oldest rugby Test fixture in the world. By half time the score was 30 - 7, with England ensuring Scotland found no respite.

It was with that pattern in mind that the New Zealand Rugby Union initially targeted a game against the Barbarians on November 4 this year.

Speaking to Alan Quinlan on Newstalk Breakfast about England's chances of securing back-to-back Grand Slams, Carling said that Ireland could prove to be a tricky assignment.

Under the ACA, also called Obamacare, the uninsured rate in the Bluegrass State dropped from about 17 percent to about 7 percent. They plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), which has done so much good for West Virginia.

An early Ireland penalty from Jonathan Sexton and territorial dominance was overturned quickly by an excellent team try from Wales finished by George North. We haven't won the Six Nations for a long time and it means an very bad amount to all of the girls.

Ireland weren't helped by the absence of their talismanic half-backs.

Ireland has lost two key men, scrumhalf Conor Murray and fullback Rob Kearney, to injury following last Friday's defeat against Wales in Cardiff. That error strewn loss cost Ireland any chances they had of setting up a title decider in the Aviva Stadium against England. "We have done that now and I think the players have re-equipped for the challenges ahead".

Boss Eddie Jones knows just how to deal with the Ireland No 10's aerial attack.

"I think past year he might have said that we kicked 60 percent of the ball that we had", the New Zealander said. I think Stander [Ireland] has been the standout back row player in the tournament. Not to say Heaslip won't play well if selected.

"Ireland not having anything to play for means they have the courage to fail which frees them up mentally".

Global sides have started to take England's form seriously.

As it stands, England go into the match as favourites.

"You have got pressure automatically because you need to perform".
