'Special' Ireland down England to seal St Patrick's Day Grand Slam

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".

RORY BEST COULDN'T hide his pride and raw emotion out on the pitch and in the press conference room at Twickenham after joining Brian O'Driscoll and Karl Mullen in the elite club of captaining Ireland to Grand Slam glory. We have to get a greater depth to our squad that can play test rugby. I will do that to the best of my ability.

"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.

Best, who is still to agree a new contract which would take him through to the World Cup, said the end result on Saturday was the reward to Sexton for his sublime drop kick in stoppage time that rainy day in Paris. We take a look at the biggest talking points from week five. "We tried to ensure that magic moments like that don't go unrewarded and reward came this afternoon with that win".
