...the win was not enough for England to hold to their crown as France’s victory in Colwyn Bay over Wales secured the Six Nations crown for them.

John Fallon -

The final scoreline seems ludicrous when parsed against the first 60 minutes of the contest at which juncture Ireland trailed by seven points

John O'Sullivan - Irish Times

Gavin Duffy made a sublime break and he showed great awareness to find Paddy Wallace and the former Ulster man sold the cheekiest of dummies to canter over for the first try of the game.

Sean McMahon - Pundit Arena

Edinburgh were far from at their best, but still did enough to pick up a win that gives them breathing space from fourth-placed Ulster.

Gareth Black - The Scotsman

For Blackrock it will be an attempt at title number 69, which would be an extraordinary achievement

Tony Ward - Irish Independent
