Ireland Seal Grand Slam At Twickenham

Ireland have secured the Six Nations Grand Slam with a thoroughly deserved 24-15 victory over England at Twickenham.

The Irish blew England away with a first-half burst before defending stoutly to ensure that their 100% record in this year's tournament remained intact.

Ireland Extend Their Lead On The Stroke Of Half-Time

Well, this is disastrous from England's point of view, magnificent from Ireland's. Jacob Stockdale prods the ball forward with his knee before getting his hand on the loose ball to score Ireland's third try of the match.

Stockdale becomes the first man to ever score seven tries in one Six Nations campaign and in doing so he has extended Ireland's lead, with Johnny Sexton successfully converting to make it 21-5 to the visitors at half-time. 

England Strike Back

Ireland have been temporarily reduced to fourteen men as Peter O'Mahony is in the sin-bin and England take full toll of his absence when Elliott Daly dives over the tryline to get England's first points on the board.

As it stands, England 5-14 Ireland at Twickenham.

Ireland In Control As Grand Slam Beckons

It has been all Ireland at Twickenham so far this afternoon and moments after Johnny Sexton saw his kick come back off the posts, Bundee Aki drives through to touch the base of the post with the ball.

Sexton successfully converts the kick and Ireland's lead over England now stands at an ominous 14-0.

Super Start From Ireland At Twickenham!

Ireland have already won the Six Nations title and they have made a perfect start to their bid to seal the Grand Slam with an early try in their match against England at Twickenham.

England's Anthony Watson spilled a high ball under pressure from Rob Kearney and Garry Ringrose stole in to ground the loose ball. Johnny Sexton nails the resulting kick and it's 7-0 to Ireland - a good start to St Patrick's Day for the visitors!

A Six Nations Upset On The Cards?

Italy are threatening to end another disappointing Six Nations campaign on a high as they lead Scotland 17-12 at half-time in Rome.

The Azzurri have lost all four of their matches in the tournament so far but they have made an impressive start against the Scots, who did at least finish the first-half strongly to suggest that they might be able to turn things around in the second period.
