‘Ireland were too good for us today’ – Eddie Jones reacts to his side’s loss to Ireland

England were second best yesterday against Ireland no doubt about it, Ireland were exceptional and won all the key battles, including the set pieces. You can see Paul O’Connell’s touch on this Irish team with the line-out being one of the vast improvements for Ireland. The scrum was also on top of the English one with Tadhg Furlong showing his worth at tighthead again and Cian Healy showing that he still has a lot to give.

Serious questions will have to be asked about England after this Six Nations, England will finish second from bottom in the Six Nations and it seems are still suffering from that World Cup final hangover. Is Eddie Jones still the right man for the job? Clive Woodward believes Eddie Jones has questions to be answered and worries where England are at… One thing is for sure England might have as many players on the tour to South Africa with yesterdays performance.
