  1. England 21-10 Ireland

    Matt Dawson

    2003 World Cup winner on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Great scrummage from England there. What an impact by Jamie George."

  2. England 21-10 Ireland

    Ireland have put-in at the scrum 5m from the whitewash... the men in green go down the blindside... but the scrum collapses and England's players roar. There's backslapping, hugs... they think Dan Cole's mastery of the dark arts has won them the match. 

  3. England 21-10 Ireland

    Denis Hickie

    Former Ireland winger on BBC Radio live

    “Danny Care can complain all he wants about the yellow card but he is guilty of not rolling away.”

  4. No try

    England 21-10 Ireland

    Josh Van der Flier runs with possession

    Have Ireland scored? Hold on a minute... Ireland's scrum is tree trunk still... the visitors spin it wide, recycle and go wide to the right again... Josh Van der Flier thinks he's scored, but according to the TMO there was no evidence that the ball had been grounded. 

  5. Sin-bin - Care

    England 21-10 Ireland

    Play is delayed as we are made to watch a number of replays because Mike Brown's foot has made contact with Conor Murray's face. 

    The England full-back remains on the field, though, but Danny Care must depart for 10 minutes for cynical play when Ireland were about to score. 

  6. England 21-10 Ireland

    Paul Grayson

    Former England fly-half on BBC Radio 5 live

    “Dylan Hartley missed three tackles in the last passage and it might have been smart of Eddie to take him off five minutes earlier as he noticeably tired.”

  7. England 21-10 Ireland

    Ireland work their way into enemy territory...Ultan Dillane goes through Dan Cole and Dylan Hartley as if they were cardboard cutouts. He releases Josh Van der Flier on his inside and continues to support to receive the return pass from the flanker, but is brought down 5m short of the tryline. Oof, that was close. 

  8. Watch Brown complete impressive England move

    Mike Brown's try gave England a clear lead for the first time in the match.

    Check out the move...

    Grant Wyeth: Just imagine what Sunday lunch is like for the Vunipola family...    

  10. England 21-10 Ireland

    Another England substitution, with Elliot Daly the fresh face to the line-up. 

  11. England 21-10 Ireland

    Ireland remaining in England's 22... a series of line-outs... pressure building, but the hosts steal possession after Rhys Ruddock wins line-out ball and could that be the killer blow to lingering Irish hope? 

  12. Watch Watson's try

    Anthony Watson scored England's first try to give his team the lead.

    Here's how it happened...

  13. England 21-10 Ireland

    Matt Dawson

    2003 World Cup winner on BBC Radio 5 live

    "What a covering tackle from Jack Nowell!!"

  14. No try

    England 21-10 Ireland

    Ireland, under the cosh, were forced to play inside their own half... four phases, five phases but a shuffle of the hips and a change of pace from Johnny Sexton and the men in green were inside England's half... Robbie Henshaw chased the kick ahead, but the Irishman was in touch before he touched down. 

  15. Try review

    England 21-10 Ireland

    My, oh my. Robbie Henshaw seemed to have been ejected into touch by the covering Jack Nowell, but the TMO will have his say. 

  16. England 21-10 Ireland

    Matt Dawson

    2003 World Cup winner on BBC Radio 5 live

    Mike Brown celebrates

    "Too fast, too quick, too much power from Billy Vunipola. Give him the man of the match now, nobody has been close to him. He is so immense for this England side. You had the feeling it was only a matter of time before Ireland cracked."

  17. Converted try - Brown, con Farrell

    England 21-10 Ireland

    Mike Brown

    England bossing the breakdown, Billy Vunipola, with the finesse of a sledgehammer, sucking in the defenders, punching holes in Ireland's tired defence and creating space for others to prosper. 

    Mike Brown the benefactor as England spin it wide, crossing the line for a simple try. 

    Owen Farrell with a tricky conversion, but the centre curls it in between the uprights with aplomb. 

  18. England 14-10 Ireland

    A number of substitutions have been made, too many to mention, but Danny Care and Mako Vunipola are on the field, adding power and guile to the England attack. 

  19. England 14-10

    Denis Hickie

    Former Ireland winger on BBC Radio 5 live

    “England’s bench have a bit more balance compared to Ireland's. The bench for England a couple of weeks ago made such a difference against Italy and Eddie Jones will be looking for the same impact.”

  20. England 14-10 Ireland

    Matt Dawson

    2003 World Cup winner on BBC Radio 5 live

    "It was a walk-in. A total walk-in for Watson. There were so many bodies there for England after so many decent carries and rucks and quick-ball."
