Eddie Jones: 'England will not lose to Ireland'

All the criticism of England underperforming disappeared last Saturday when England thrashed Scotland 61-21 at Twickenham to retain the Six Nations title that Jones one in his first year with England, and the Australian now has the chance for his team to become the first to win consecutive Grand Slam titles in the Six Nations era, but also break New Zealand's record for the most consecutive victories in worldwide rugby.

England, infamously, could not even win two games in a row at their own World Cup, defeats on consecutive weekends at Twickenham by Wales and Australia condemning the tournament hosts to a first-round exit.

I'm a child of the 1990s and if you are going to say something rude you stick two fingers up and not one. We understand that people believed we would come closer than that. We're preparing for the World Cup and this is a World Cup final. We're ready to go to another level against Ireland this week. It is a big occasion.

"We are positive Elliot is going to be okay". "If you win 19 games on the trot you are pushing it".

"Any team that beats the best team in the world (New Zealand) does a lot of good things", he added.

England ran in seven tries as they hammered Scotland 61-21 to win the Calcutta Cup on Saturday.

Oil prices dips as U.S. rigs count increases
The contract lost $2.86, or 5.4 percent, to $50.28 on Wednesday, the biggest decline in percentage terms since February 2016. The nation's active oil-rig count has nearly doubled since May to 617 last week, according to Baker Hughes.

England put a lid on celebrating a second straight Six Nations rugby title, according to coach Eddie Jones. "The players and staff bring their families and enjoy themselves", he told reporters.

England continued to execute their unforgiving game plan and with Jones' finishers coming on in the second half, the likes of Dylan Hartley and hat-trick hero Jonathan Joseph, were called ashore to admire the completion of their day's work from the bench. I think the way we played showed what we can do.

"It's been hard. It is a very honest camp we have".

"When you compete and get beaten you don't like it".

One concern for England was the sight of Elliot Daly having to go off early following a unsafe "tip tackle" by Scotland hooker Fraser Brown that sent the wing crashing to the turf.

Sexton, who has a black eye, passed a Head Injury Assessment and cleared of concussion, manager Paul Dean said.
