George North reveals 'hurt' drove Wales to Six Nations victory over Ireland

All the criticism of England underperforming disappeared last Saturday when England thrashed Scotland 61-21 at Twickenham to retain the Six Nations title that Jones one in his first year with England, and the Australian now has the chance for his team to become the first to win consecutive Grand Slam titles in the Six Nations era, but also break New Zealand's record for the most consecutive victories in global rugby.

The Wasps man has now set his sights on a win in Dublin as they look to put the pressure on New Zealand and celebrate a successive Grand Slam.

England head coach Simon Middleton said: "We're thrilled with that performance".

We haven't got anything to celebrate yet. "They have been averaging 30-odd points a game recently and I didn't think it was possible to keep a top-four-ranked team to single-digit points".

"It's a great opportunity for us".

It was Vunipola's first worldwide appearance of this Six Nations after he suffered a knee ligament injury back in November. "I expect us to play better than we did last week".

"This is great for us".

On an afternoon where fans basked in the glory of an England side delivering a highlight reel performance, they were also treated to a veritable love-in from Hartley and Joseph.

Marie Louise Reilly is in line to win her second Women's Six Nations Grand Slam after the Summerhill lock forward helped Ireland to a 12-7 win over Wales at Cardiff Arms Park earlier today.
