621 a.m. GMT 6:09 p.m.

60 Minutes We had four minutes with an England scrum going on, which will probably consume some time for Farrell HIA. When the time comes, Ireland will powder the English eight with a second push and win a penalty Sexton happily points to the post

619 p.m. GMT18: 07 p.m.

56 minutes Owen Farrell was accidentally hit on the head in a duel with Henderson and was forced into an HIA in protest. This will get Robson to play stand-off! ouch

I am struggling to remember the last time England played on the backline without Farrell or Ford

615 a.m. GMT 6:03 p.m.

54 minutes Elliot Daly does a wonderful job of pulling the ball out of his 22, defeating Irish pursuers and positioning his team to win a penalty that will restore possession in Ireland for the first time in a long time Four competent phases later, Josh van der Flier hits the ball to relieve the pressure

613 p.m. GMT18: 01 p.m.

600pm GMT18: 00

51 minutes Ireland definitely had an advantage; Sexton knocks it off and piles the pain on England

558 a.m. GMT17: 58

49 minutes Ireland feed Henderson at large in the second phase and the lock rumbles into England 22 The ball is worked a few times on the left before Sexton realizes the English defense is tight and Earls cross-kicks sprayed that ends a few meters away

But the referee spotted and knocked under construction, and the attempt is abandoned This is a killer for Earls when he finished beautifully again

554 p.m. GMT17: 54

46 mins This time it’s up to Ireland to lose a lineout in a decent position and do a few carries on the England turnover ball before kicking Young’s box again.This is clearly an instruction but the kicks are not accurate enough and hence the pursuit can Ford does something similar the next time visitors get the ball back

There is still a long way to go, but England needs to be more accurate, kicked or hand-held

551 p.m. GMT17: 51

43 minutes England have their first chance to regain a foothold with a lineout in Irish 22 but Beirne forces Curry into a position that means the referee will issue an intersection penalty Billy Vunipola will be punished again and will be penalized the next time possession is there Ireland is back in the English half

548 a.m. GMT17: 48

547 p.m. GMT17: 47

Eddie Jones wastes no time sorting the scrum or convincing the referee to sort the scrum. Often both are the same

540 h GMT17: 40

We’re back in messed up, chunky England Ireland’s accuracy and strength have been impressive @bloodandmud England looked disjointed Slade does so much unsung work and I’m sure Malins’ injury is a factor, but Daly just doesn’t look like one anymore Test 15 out of Fair Score Very Poor

There is not much to add to that. England have a big forty minutes to go, because to book the tournament with the performances against Scotland and this – if it goes on of course – would not be great at all

532 a.m. GMT17: 32

40 minutes England’s answer is that the captain rolls the dice unnecessarily after the duel is over and Ireland gives light possession from the penalty kick to comfortably end the half

529 p.m. GMT17: 29

38 mins After a solid and fluid spell of possession from Ireland, the ball works left and right Sexton finally drops an accurate bomb that Keenan is doing a great job overtaking Daly to win her in England 22 in the next few stages England is penalized, but to the advantage the ball is left for a decent Stockdale dart before Conan carries hard from a few yards to score

525 p.m. GMT17: 25

33 minutes England tries to do a little more with their backs as they attempt an intricate wrap-around game that puts the ball back in Ford’s hand, but his final pass completely misses Watson and flies into contact

In a scrum a few games later, Mako gets involved early and because it’s the second of the white pack after Sinckler’s earlier incident, Ref Raynal converts it into a penalty

Ireland is starting to feel like it is settling into a containment pattern and it is working to frustrate England

520 hrs GMT17: 20

29 minutes Another penalty against Mako Vunipola, this time for breaking down the scrum, allows Sexton to take another kick and he makes no mistake

517 p.m. GMT17: 17

27 minutes England attack again after a lineout in the Irish half and an Irish striker is punished for lifting a leg from England in his mouth

Owen Farrell increases the score of his team by three points and scores over 500 points with his individual Six Nations all-time move

513 p.m. GMT17: 13

24 Minutes England have a promising attack with Johnny May off their wing and take the ball in the 13 channels running around on the opposite wing The ball will be recycled but a penalty will be given if Mako Vunipola rolls Murray’s neck

From the lineout it’s a long over-the-top throw and the inside pop to Earls from his wing puts him behind the English defense. He kicks around May and ends in the right corner

520 p.m. GMT17: 08 p.m.

20 Minutes Conor Murray does an absolute horror show in which he catches a spiral bomb from George Ford and completely misinterprets it if it ricochets 3 meters in front of him, and it’s only Aki retreating who saves the blushes of his nine grab the ball

Meanwhile, Dave Kilcoyne got a head blow and Cian Healy will replace him while he has an assessment

517 p.m. GMT17: 05 p.m.

18 minutes It’s popping in the front and it’s popped through the Irish captain’s post

516 p.m. GMT17: 04 p.m.

15 Minutes Kyle Sinckler is a little nervous in the crowd and loses his team in decent attacking position early on, but the visitors return from lineout possession before Henshaw holds Ford up to reclaim the ball via a choke tackle. p>

These are a few wasted properties in succession for England in promising positions They hope they don’t regret the ending and this is compounded after Ireland scored a penalty with the ball on their next foray

459 p.m. GMT16: 59

12 minutes A kick from Ford is a beauty that puts Stockdale under pressure from the English chasers deep in 22, and Ireland is on its feet trying to clear the jolt Farrell goes into the corner and see their catch and ride them over the line but held!

456 p.m. GMT16: 56

9 minutes Ireland is penalized for Furlong’s early run in the English lineout in Irish 22 Farrell asks about the kicking tee and calmly puts his side on the scoreboard

453 p.m. GMT16: 53

6 minutes The first scrum of the game, an Irish feed on its own 10-meter line, takes the running time of a Marvel Cinematic Universe film. The strikers finally do their job, and then it’s the Irish backs turn around to fight Aki’s sideways barrel being brought into contact

449 a.m. GMT16: 49

3 Minutes England wins their first lineout and after a few attempts to secure it in the back of the mouth, Ben Youngs sends his first box kick giving Ireland a chance to attack from their 22nd with the ball handled on Stockdale’s left that carries the center line, but little else comes up

447 a.m. GMT16: 47

1 min George Ford has the ball and sends it to Dublin’s early spring skies to get us on our way

444 p.m. GMT16: 44

437 a.m. GMT16: 37

@bloodandmud I remember being at a college bar surrounded by English students in 2013 during my freshman year when Wales pounded it by a record margin I wasn’t popular but I was too drunk to care take care

434 p.m. GMT16: 34

A nod to CJ Stander who shocked us this week with his announcement that he would be leaving rugby at the end of the season and this will be his last game for Ireland and there won’t be a crowd to deserve an adorable farewell could give

423 p.m. GMT16: 11

A fascinating aspect of Ireland’s forward dominance for much of the game at Murrayfield last Sunday was the total dismantling of new strikers Coach Paul O’Connell played in Scotland If something similar happens today, combined with England’s still dubious discipline, I may need to quickly revise my preamble predication

352 p.m. GMT15: 52

George Ford watches Ireland play against Scotland and thinks he knows what England must do to win

347 p.m. GMT15: 47

When England pounded Ireland into this game convincingly in 2019 by England, the day after my grandma’s funeral, I was at a pub called The Happy Landing in Eglington, Northern Ireland, surrounded by a grieving Irish family that was quite a rugby experience, let’s me tell you

Do you have unpleasant rugby stories to tell or something else to tell? Why don’t you email me or tweet @bloodandmud?

347 p.m. GMT15: 47

Ireland makes six changes, some forced and the rest for tactical or formal reasons Bundee Aki is at the center of the injured Gary Ringrose, while James Lowe’s convincing impression of a man unsuitable for this level of rugby is from Farrell and the former prodigy Jacob got the German Shepherd Stockdale is regaining its place on the wing

In the pack, Will Connors, a revelation against Scotland, is injured and is replaced by Leinster’s Josh van der Flier While James Ryan is absent due to a head injury, Tadhg Beirne moves to the second row and Jack Conan takes his place in the back row

England’s only change was Elliot Daly stepping back to the side in the wake of the injured Henry Slade but a very late injury from Max Malins brings Daly back at 15 and puts Ollie Lawrence in the middle of Leicester’s young back row George Martin appears on a 6-2 split bench with Joe Marchant and Dan Robson on both backs This means that despite all these absences, the exciting Wasp winger Paolo Odogwu is not yet in a matchday squad after a lot of fanfare at the start of the tournament you can see

Ireland: Hugo Keenan; Keith Earls, Robbie Henshaw, Bundee Aki, and Jacob Stockdale; Jonathan Sexton (Capt), Conor Murray; Dave Kilcoyne, Rob Herring, Tadhg Furlong, Iain Henderson, Tadhg Beirne, CJ Stander, Josh van der Flier and Jack Conan

Substitutions: 16 Ronan Kelleher, 17 Cian Healy, 18 Andrew Porter, 19 Ryan Baird, 20 Peter O’Mahony, 21 Jamison Gibson Park, 22 Billy Burns, 23 Jordan Larmour

England: Elliot Daly; Anthony Watson, Ollie Lawrence, Owen Farrell (Capt), Jonny May; George Ford, Ben Youngs; Mako Vunipola, Luke Cowan-Dickie, Kyle Sinckler, Maro Itoje, Charlie Ewels, Mark Wilson, Tom Curry and Billy Vunipola

Substitutions: 16 Jamie George, 17 Ellis Genge, 18 Will Stuart, 19 Jonny Hill, 20 Ben Earl, 21 Dan Robson, 22 Ollie Lawrence, 23 TBC

320 p.m. GMT15: 20

On one level, this game couldn’t be dead gum if it were the blue end of the Staedtler pencil & ink that lived in my pencil case from 1988 to 1991.But these are the Six Nations, they’re two old rivals and both teams will have something at the end of the tournament that they want to leave behind as a marker, there is also the possibility of the loser finishing fifth, a prospect neither nation will lick their lips at

Eddie Jones has to show that his team is more of what troubled France in attack last week, and less of the bullied and humble outfit that lost to Scotland on the opening weekend while Andy Farrell will feel like a display to show that after some mediocre (at best) appearances, brings back some confidence in his leadership of the men in green; A victorious outing against Scotland did not calm many doubters

A long international layoff is imminent as this is (hopefully) a Lions summer with little chance for other tours Both teams have more than half a year to stew today That doesn’t go well with them

England have won the last two meetings between the two nations with six nations and are aiming for the triple today. If Ireland put out something like their scaly second-half performance last week, you would be putting your money on the visitors who make it three times in a row
