England ready for tough Irish test

Stuart Lancaster is pleased with the "cohesion" his side have carried into their 2013 Six Nations campaign, which began with a 38-18 victory over Scotland, however he expects a tough test against Ireland in Dublin.

Following his try-scoring debut for England Billy Twelvetrees is looking forward to the challenge of playing in Dublin and is hoping to add more points to his tally.

Ben and Tom Youngs' father Nick made his England debut against Ireland in Dublin in 1983 and the brothers are looking forward to following in their father's footsteps, however Ben is keen to avoid a repeat of 2011 when England's Grand Slam hopes were crushed by a dominant 24-8 Irish win in Dublin.
