Schmidt prepares for 'toughest challenge'

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt says his side are preparing for the 'toughest challenge' of their Six Nations campaign to date when they take on England at Twickenham on Saturday.

The holders drew their opening game against Wales at the Aviva Stadium, and then lost by a single point to France in Paris.

Ireland have handed debuts to centre Stuart McCloskey and flanker Josh van der Flier for the match, with another potential debutant, Ultan Dillane, named on the replacements' bench.
