England continue Grand Slam quest

Second-half tries from Anthony Watson and Mike Brown sealed a come-from-behind victory for England that keeps alive their chance of a Grand Slam in their first Six Nations under Eddie Jones.

Match Commentary

81'ESPN's Tom Hamilton had this to say straight from Twickenham:

"England are three from three after a 21-10 win over Ireland at a freezing Twickenham. Anthony Watson and Mike Brown's tries proved to be the difference but ill-discipline will worry them - they had two players sin-binned - and so will their inability to finish off some good attacking positions. Billy Vunipola was again heroic for England but so was Jonathan Sexton for Ireland. England will now prepare for Wales in a fortnight as the prospect of a long-awaited Grand Slam hangs over them."
