    It was interesting watching the anthems because the England girls were rocking around with massive smiles on their faces but Ireland were really focused, so it'll be interesting to see how both sides start.

    Ireland 0-0 England

    England scored 12 tries in their last outing and Ireland's pack has been strong throughout this tournament.

  9. Grand Slam part three

    Ireland v England (17:00 GMT, Saturday)

    Eddie Jones' senior England men then face Ireland on Saturday in Dublin hoping to make it three from three.

    Having already secured the Six Nations title, they have the Grand Slam and that 19-game unbeaten record firmly in their sights.

    But that's tomorrow. And they'll have to wait their turn.

    Back to the second showdown in Donnybrook.

  10. Grand Slam part two

    Ireland women v England women (20:00 GMT)

    Kay Wilson

    With the U20s having delivered the goods, England's women now have the opportunity to add the second Grand Slam of the day.

    They managed 12 tries against Scotland last time out, with winger Kay Wilson clocking a record seven scores on the way to a 64-0 win.

    But standing in their way tonight are an Ireland side who are also unbeaten in this year's tournament.

    And what could be better than beating the English on St Patrick's Day on home turf?

  11. Grand Slam part one

    Ireland U20s 10-14 England U20s

    In the first game of the 'Donnybrook double' England U20s beat Ireland U20s 14-10, securing the first of three Grand Slams on offer for England rugby this weekend.

    Tries from Jack Nay and Henry Walker gave England a 14-3 half-time lead but Ireland's Gavin Coombes scored with 15 minutes to play and set up a tense finale.

    Ireland nearly spoiled the party, but were held up over the line with the clock on red after a fantastic defensive display from the men in white.

    England had already secured the Six Nations title but claimed their first Grand Slam since 2011.
