Eddie Jones: Breakdown deficiencies will take time to fix

Eddie Jones: Breakdown deficiencies will take time to fix

The St. Patrick's Day meeting was earmarked as a Six Nations decider during the early weeks of this year's tournament, but back-to-back defeats at the hands of Scotland and France has left England completely out of contention.

"I think I just watched it with my family at the time so it would be awesome to be part of something like that but there's no point getting too distracted".

Ireland has only ever won two Grand Slams - in 1948 and 2009 - and Schmidt is being credited with developing unprecedented depth in Ireland's test ranks.

"And then there's this young crew - James Ryan doesn't know what it's like to lose a Six Nations".

"We've got better in every game in this championship".

"I haven't played there before so it would be pretty special to go to what is an incredible stadium with 80-odd thousand people".

"Rory Best, Peter O'Mahony, Devin Toner, Cian Healy, Jack McGrath, and there's Conor Murray and Johnny Sexton obviously; all those players have been incredibly consistent through it, and so has Rob Kearney". We will have to go to another level to beat England.

"I think it was just small errors by individuals in the last few games that gave them (Italy and Wales) tries". We are basically getting on with it, the players' attitude has been fantastic, they have a real desire to turn things around.

The 58-year-old Australian - who prior to the Six Nations had suffered just the one defeat since taking over after the 2015 World Cup debacle - said defeat helps in the evolution of great sides. I think some games we were physically dominant.

The England boss says he will stick with the players in his squad to turn around their form ahead of Saturday's match at Twickenham.

Perhaps the most significant achievement of the likes of O'Gara, Brian O'Driscoll and Paul O'Connell are the players now seeking to match them.

"Being champions going into the last round, you've got to take confidence from that, that happened for a reason, we've worked hard for that". He started his coaching career at a country club in Westmeath in the 1980s while on his OE from New Zealand.

Jordi Murphy later made a significant impact during his 25-minute cameo off the bench, while try scorer Sean Cronin and Jack McGrath also added to Ireland's forward play in the latter stages.
