Maro Itoje injury has England anxious after Six Nations triumph over Ireland

Maro Itoje injury has England anxious after Six Nations triumph over Ireland

Jones is not expecting Itoje will be available for Sunday's match against France at Twickenham as England look to back-up their stunning 32-20 against defending Grand Slam champions, England's first victory in Dublin since 2013. Green jerseys were scythed down and Irish playmaker Jonathan Sexton, world rugby's best player in 2018, was reduced to shaking his head and conceding England's fourth try.

"Some games are immensely physical, some are more tactical and we went in there and probably shaded them a little bit in that area".

We've got Joe Launchbury ready to come back in, you saw Courtney [Lawes] come off the bench for us. You can't come out here and start that slow and expect to win.

"We're a team that's still growing", Jones said of the side he took control of in 2015. "From one to 15, they were huge and Owen Farrell led the team brilliantly", Woodward said.

Eddie Jones insists that England's Guinness Six Nations title hopes will not be derailed by a knee injury sustained by Maro Itoje which could see the Saracens forward ruled out of the remainder of the championship.

"Ireland are a good, well-drilled side, and we tried to play England rugby, with good attacking kicks".

"These games have got nothing to do with the World Cup", Jones said.

"I thought Jonny May was outstanding, too".

"This was it, then, the signature performance England needed, a statement of intent at the start of the World Cup year", wrote reporter Andy Bull. "They've been consistently good".

Ireland headed into the game with a lot of confidence after beating Wallabies 2-1 in the summer series a year ago followed with a successful autumn campaign that also saw them beat the All Blacks but the defeat at Aviva Stadium means Ireland's dream of consecutive Grand Slam has vanished in what will be Joe Schmidt's final Six Nations tournament with the side.

"England collectively delivered a simmering physical intensity".

"The result tonight will be a challenge to our confidence because you get used to having that winning feeling and it's pretty hollow right now", Schmidt admitted.

Ireland did not make the next 10 minutes count but instead when England returned to full strength Cian Healy breached the visitors' defence for their opening try but his effort was negated by the half-hour mark when Jacob Stockdale lost a possession allowing Daly to touchdown. "But we've got good depth".

"We probably didn't have the same physical edge that they did".
