Eddie Jones twists the knife in Ireland's disappointing Six Nations campaign

  • The Union between England and Scotland can be saved

We don't expect anything else from Eddie Jones, the England head coach, particularly in this week of all weeks as his team chase a world record 19th win and a Grand Slam in Dublin.

England put a lid on celebrating a second straight Six Nations rugby title, according to coach Eddie Jones. "It is all ahead of us".

It was just a harmless hand gesture.I was throwing a punch in the air and people are talking about that rather than an incredible defensive performance where Ireland were kept try-less for the first time for four years. How many opportunities in your life do you get to beat Ireland in Ireland to win back-to-back grand slams? "It's very humbling to get them cheering me like that, although I believe it was more for Nathan Hughes coming off because he had a stormer", he added modestly.

"Every year is hard". There's failure on one side or you can kick on and get better and hit those lofty heights.

"The grand slam was our goal at the start of the tournament and we're firmly pushing towards it".

England captain Dylan Hartley has urged his side to end the Six Nations with an unbeaten record and beat Ireland next weekend.

Ireland's hopes, meanwhile, were ended after Friday's 22-9 loss in Cardiff but Jones insisted: "Ireland, psychologically, are in a very strong position".

Rob Howley's side will close their Six Nations account by taking on France in Paris on Saturday, with Edwards demanding more of the same without the ball against Les Bleus.

Wasps utility back Elliot Daly, meanwhile, has been included in England's initial 31-man training squad for the Ireland clash despite being forced off after only 16 minutes on Saturday. He was tip-tackled early on by Scotland hooker Fraser Brown, who was cited and faces a hearing on Tuesday. We are hugely excited about the challenge of going over to Dublin, and trying to go and create some history and memories with each other. "It's a bit like Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf when the wolf comes dressed up as the grandmother", Jones said.
