England game will be on different level - Paul O'Connell

Ireland captain Paul O'Connell says his side's key Six Nations game against England in Dublin on 1 March will be "on a different level" to anything they have experienced so far in the tournament.

"That will be as big a game as a lot of us have ever played," reflected the second row after the Irish made it two wins out of two by beating France 18-11.

"There were a lot of poor parts about our performance and a lot of things we will not be happy about from that match but it's not often in my career that we have beaten France," concluded O'Connell.
