Ireland annihilate England to WIN The Grand Slam & The Six Nations

With Grand Slam, Ireland the new king of European rugby

Ireland reaffirmed its status as the new king of European rugby by clinching a Grand Slam in the Six Nations and plunging dethroned champion England into its first real crisis under Eddie Jones.

The fear factor was broken in a superb first half with three tries for Ireland to lead by 21-5 at halftime.

On the hour mark, it was Ireland who scored the first points of the second half as England were penalised for not rolling away and Murray struck the penalty.

"The statement for us was to make sure we won something big and ultimately in this, what turned out to be a cup final for us, to show what we're made of", the hooker added.

Just when the English, after 24 wins in 25 games under Jones, were looking the most risky challengers to New Zealand ahead of the 2019 World Cup, they have lost three games in a row.

He also paid tribute to the patched together backline, which was staffed by young players, some of them in their first global campaigns, as injuries mounted up throughout the championship and through this game.

"They are a good tough team, very worthy grand slam champions and they've performed extremely well today".

England, smarting from back-to-back defeats to Scotland and France, started with the bit between its teeth, but it was Ireland that drew first blood when Anthony Watson spilled a towering kick from Sexton and the alert Ringrose dotted down only five minutes in.

Ex-Ireland fly-half Tony Ward: "This is the greatest achievement in the history of Irish rugby".

The tournament began with a dramatic win in Paris when Johnny Sexton's last-gasp drop-goal saw off the French.

Man of the Match went to Tadhg Furlong.

A record-extending 12th successive Irish victory was sealed at a canter as a 21-5 half-time lead in south west London established an unassailable position to elevate Joe Schmidt's class of 2018 alongside the heroes of 1948 and 2009.

England started the second half superbly and but for an exceptional tap tackle by Earls on Daly four minutes in, the winger would have been in for his second try. But Farrell again missed the conversion, leaving his side 14 points adrift with 15 minutes to go.

Stockdale has been in unstoppable for Ireland since making his debut last summer - he now has 11 tries in nine tests and became the first person ever to score seven tries in the Six Nations.

Ireland lost Sexton to a head injury assessment, but Joey Carbery managed the clock well as Ireland wound down the sin-bin by keeping possession.

Murray sent over a penalty, but despite second half tries from Daly and Jonny May, Ireland secured victory.
