Ireland claim Six Nations Grand Slam

Report Sky Sports – Tries from Garry Ringrose, CJ Stander and Jacob Stockdale saw Ireland secure a third Grand Slam in their history with a 24-15 win at a bitingly cold Twickenham.

Elliot Daly notched a double, while Jonny May scored in the final minute in reply for England but an ultra-physical Ireland proved too difficult to crack.

The loss was the first defeat under Eddie Jones at Twickenham in some 16 attempts, and just the second time in history – after France in 1981 – a Grand Slam was confirmed for any visitors to the home of English rugby.
