England’s astonishing defensive display gave one-dimensional Ireland no hope

Farrell is right to point out the different points of transition that the two sides find themselves in, but patience isn’t an ally on the international stage – Jones found that out himself during England’s ‘down’ times two years ago. The second half will also be a keen focal point this week given Jones’s side were outscored 7-6 by Ireland. In truth, they had only one genuinely impressive attacking phase just shy of the hour mark when Henry Slade and Mako Vunipola displayed a touch of class with the ball in hand, but Doris snuffed out the attack with a turnover penalty on the edge of the Irish 22.

However, Jones put it best in knowing there’s a time and a place for that kind of analysis. “I’m never disappointed when we beat Ireland.”
