Eddie Jones does not expect quick fix to England's breakdown woes

Vodafone are Official sponsors of the Irish Rugby team.

Having lost to Scotland and France, defeat to Ireland would mark England's worst Six Nations performance since 2006.

But George said last year's champions are more concerned with sorting out their own deficiencies than putting a blot on Ireland's copybook. I wouldn't have any fears about the younger players, they're just so good at rugby that it comes so naturally to them.

Their performances have deteriorated as the tournament has progressed. The flanker has arguably been one of the best forwards in the English Premiership in recent years, and should he make the matchday squad on Saturday, could cause Ireland serious problems.

Scotland and now France have capitalised on previously uncovered fault lines to lift some of the shine off Jones' outstanding record of 24 wins from 27 Tests, but the Australian head coach is determined to retain perspective. What does this tell us?

Then what about territory?

Ireland great Brian O'Driscoll is not a betting man but the captain of the last Irish side to win the Six Nations Grand Slam is backing the 2018 version to emulate them. That is poor and unacceptable, given the investment in the team and their huge advantage in playing numbers and strength in depth. "If he is fit he will come straight back into the team". Dan Leavy has nearly single-handedly led the assault on this front with his dogged, no-nonsense displays at the breakdown and his teammates have certainly followed suit.

It's quite possible Taylor was trying to drive up buzz about the " Delicate " release leading up to the iHeartRadio Music Awards. It officially impacts radio this week - and already holds Top 50 positions at pop and hot adult contemporary radio.

Conor Murray has warned his teammates - what's gone before won't be good enough to win the Grand Slam. However, they showed patience, togetherness and accurate implementation of their systems to work their way up the pitch to give Sexton that opportunity - and he duly obliged.

A 22-16 loss to France in Paris allowed Ireland to seize the crown from England with a round to spare. "It is about as much as possible trying to treat it like another game". Yet there was no structure, no leadership and above all, no patience to their play.

"I liked the look of them at the start of the year".

Ireland now sit on 87.85 ranking points, more than six points behind the All Blacks.

The defence has been a concern on occasions, too.

The side stands on the brink of winning a Grand Slam and beating their previous longest run of successive wins when they face England at Twickenham.
