Mar 19, 2018, 04:12
Ireland won 24-15 to seal the Six Nations Grand Slam and inflict a third defeat of the tournament on England, who had lost only one of their first 25 Tests under the Australian.
In the aftermath of Ireland's third Grand Slam, Jones paid homage to the manner of Ireland's victory and the efforts of his counterpart, Joe Schmidt, describing Ireland as a good tough team before adding: They are very well disciplined, they play to their strengths and very worthy Grand Slam winners.
"It is obviously a little bit more special quite apart from starting every game but also captaining the side", said Best.
"To win something as captain in that special green jersey, it's something that dreams are made of".

"You don't want to be panicking too much up there".
Jones has presided over three defeats, to Scotland, France and Ireland, in this year's Six Nations and suggested that he may have run out of patience with certain unnamed England players. That's what we're going through.
"We're sitting number two in the world, and we're excited to have a crack at New Zealand".
"The eight minutes after half-time today sums up the team", said Schmidt.
More information as we have it.
