Six Nations: Ireland win 2018 title after England's defeat to France

	Scotland captain John Barclay is leading the team to Dublin

Scotland won this reverse fixture in Edinburgh last season, while their last victory in Dublin ensured Ireland failed to gain a Triple Crown in Dublin in 2010: that after Ireland had beaten Wales at Croke Park and England in Twickenham.

The breakdown, exposed at Murrayfield, was a fault line once more but even more alarming were the 16 penalties that saw them whistled out of contention by referee Jaco Peyper.

"They don't come around too easy, so as a team we're going to do our very, very best to make sure that we can produce".

"We've got to go into the game knowing our roles inside out, getting the physicality right", he told ITV.

"If we find something unfamiliar tomorrow we've got to go back to our process, trust our gameplan".

It was the third defeat of Jones' 27 Tests in charge and the Australian called for a sense of perspective while England address their slump.

"I think it is at a fairly advanced stage and we'll hopefully have an announcement about that fairly soon", said Best of negotiations. We can learn a huge lesson from three games ago.

England now travel to France needing to match Ireland's bonus point win in order to delay this year's champion coronation until next week.

The Fijian-born Wasps star took a blow to his left knee inside the opening half hour and had to be helped from the pitch.

While that will be the focus of the players, coaches, and supporters in the coming week, the performances so far do mean that Ireland have most likely already won the Six Nations title this year, meaning it'll be a fourth title in the last 10 years, and a fourth winner's medal for four members of the current squad - captain Rory Best, Cian Healy, Keith Earls, and Rob Kearney.

"Our defence was remarkable and there was a lot of energy and will".

"I speak to Marc quite regularly, he's just another set of eyes", said Hatley, himself a former prop who played for England's second team, the Saxons.

"Those sorts of things should allow us the variety to try to keep a sort of balance in what we're doing to attack them. I would be here for hours if I listed them all", he said. "We've been criticised a lot but we believe in the team".
