KXIP vs KKR Live Score

"We need to make sure we rest up and get ready for next weekend", said Stander, speaking in the aftermath of the 28-8 bonus point success against Scotland.

Their performances have deteriorated as the tournament has progressed.

Ireland celebrate scoring against Scotland.

Woodward followed Jones and former captain Lawrence Dallaglio in criticising England's inability to maintain their discipline as they conceded 16 penalties to France, especially after making similar mistakes against Scotland.

"I don't understand where England have been mentally in the last two games".

Well, statistics can often be misleading but it is clear that Ireland have played each and every game on their own terms.

Jones insists it could take another 18 months before his players learn to adjust to the difference in emphasis between global rugby and the Aviva Premiership, in which fewer numbers are committed to the ruck.

So Ireland are holding on to the ball for longer and they are doing so in the opposition's half.

Rory Best, who along with full-back Rob Kearney is one of the two survivors from the 2009 squad, says he is under no illusions as to the size of the task. "If he is fit he will come straight back into the team".

Ireland are Six Nations champions again - with a game still to go.

The back row forwards sustained knee problems in the 22-16 defeat by France in Paris and have been omitted from a 32-man training squad that is to prepare for the final round of the Championship. "It is about as much as possible trying to treat it like another game". This group haven't had the opportunity, so we can surely look back on what they did and what it meant for them afterwards. The lineout setpiece came under serious pressure against Scotland like it did in Murrayfield past year and for all the possession and territory, Ireland should probably be exiting the "Red Zone" with more points. The narrow, quick line speed defence of Andy Farrell has shown weakness as the Irish players begin to tire but these issues are fixable and they have not cost Ireland, yet.

Jones, who guided England to the Grand Slam in 2016 and then was denied another one a year later when the Irish upset them in Dublin, said the principal hurdle to overcome was the dent to the players' confidence.

Winning a Grand Slam, against England and in Twickenham - well, there should be no shortage of motivation.
