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

Ireland's win over Scotland in Dublin, coupled with England's loss in France, handed Joe Schmidt's side the crown.

In the unlikely event that you have spent the afternoon beneath a rock - Ireland have won the Six Nations championship with a game to spare, thanks to England leaving Paris with the wrong kind of bonus point.

Schmidt has yet to guide a side to a win in the English capital or claim a Grand Slam while in charge - though he did secure back-to-back title wins in 2014 and 2015.

"We know how hard it will be [to win the Grand Slam]".

The Irish will be gunning for a first Grand Slam in almost a decade and will hope to avoid the same fate they handed England in the reversed situation 12 months ago.

All attentions now turn to whether Ireland can achieve that all-so-elusive Grand Slam at Twickenham. We got a lot of good opportunities which we weren't able to finish, but there's lots to be happy with. As Jones would have it, this is the entire England story, chapter and verse.

"But we know that the biggest challenge is ahead, still".

As the Aviva Stadium crowd became more and more frustrated with the lack of Irish progress, Bundee Aki nearly claimed his third try in the green jersey of Ireland, but was unfortunately held up as he attempted to cross the line at what must be his favourite spot at the ground, just left of the left hand post where he had scored his two previous Ireland tries.

Daly laid on a try for fellow wing May with six minutes remaining, but it was too little, too late for England, whose day was summed up by the concession of yet another penalty late on, kicked by replacement Lionel Beauxis.

Ireland are set to gain.63 of a point, with England losing 1.88 points.

Scotland had their chances but weren't as accurate, and butchered at least two tries.

Yet last year, the first year bonus points came into play, fewer tries were scored than in 2016 - 66 to 71. From the resulting scrum, Ringrose doubled round Bundee Aki, and Stockdale stepped opposite Kinghorn to score his second try of the match, and a leading sixth in the championship. That's a stretch too far, ruin too strong a word.

"We need to make sure that when we have these experiences that are tough, it goes into our work to improve". They didn't react to (referee) Nigel Owens' interpretation of the breakdown two weeks ago and then on Saturday they didn't react and adapt.

"Against both Ireland (lost 15-13 in the last minute) and England, we've shown we can go up against them and we will continue to do so". "We play Ireland next year in the Six Nations and we will play them in 18 months at the World Cup and we need to make sure we are a better team when we play them".
