Eddie Jones concedes the breakdown deficiencies exposed during the demise of England's NatWest 6 Nations title defence could persist until the World Cup. "That's it. The likes of Mako Vunipola and Anthony Watson are good internationals but when they are struggling to play at their very best, that puts a massive amount of pressure on the world-class players". Just last month, they had gone eight matches without a win. "When the opposition are making errors or they're creating chances themselves". They're going to have a lot to play for, a lot of pride as well.

Eddie Jones believes despite two "very painful" defeats which ended England's two year Six Nations reign they can learn from the experience and bounce back.

"We know what we want - we want to win this game".

"We're coming from the Premiership, where no one competes at the breakdown, into the Six Nations, where every team is throwing lots of people into it".

"On the other side, there's always something with every team, you never play the flawless game, maybe you're trying to do that so there's always fixes - definitely with this group, with the experience, the new guys coming in, the younger generation that have added so much, there's something there, there's another level that we're striving towards".

"I think it was just small errors by individuals in the last few games that gave them (Italy and Wales) tries".

Maxime Machenaud duly added his fourth penalty and Jonny May's try came too late in the piece for England, with Ireland now holding an unassailable lead in the table. "We haven't been quick enough to adjust to that", Haskell said.

England, victor of the tournament in 2016 and 2017, knew it needed to win and score four tries after Ireland achieved that feat in a 28-8 triumph over Scotland earlier in the day.

They like to have the ball and their game plan revolves around moving the opposition around the pitch, varying the point of attack to inevitably tire the opposition out which will increase the likelihood of scoring points, either through opposition indiscipline or poor defending.

"We're just looking for progress, and we're a really tough team to play against".

"We're going to have to probably save the best for last", said Ireland captain Rory Best.

"Totally different", he said when asked if he saw similarities between the two games. But that was much more of a game. At 21-3, Ireland was cruising. It wasn't and that's down to us, but that performance was miles ahead of the one in Cardiff. I thought Simon Berghan did well: we now have depth at tighthead. Playing Ireland away from home with their running threats and their intricate plays, also their kicking game.
