England v Ireland preview

A big difference to Ireland this year, as opposed to last, is the strength of their bench.

Patrick McCarry -

 "I’ve been training there this week and I started off my career there in my London Irish days and I quite enjoyed it with the way we used to play."

William Pickworth - The Guardian

Former Ulster favourite Ruan Pienaar...kicked a penalty and the conversion to a try from fullback Clayton Blommetjies.

Richard Mulligan - Belfast Newsletter

The 20-year-old fly-half had no interest in drifting wide. He had one thing on his mind, the ball.

Simon Thomas - WalesOnline

...let’s not kid ourselves that this was anything other than a turgid tussle between two uninspired sides.

David Barnes - The Offside Line
