This is a damned good Ireland. Fully deserving of the Slam. Their defence has been astonishing today


They absorbed the yellow card period easily, as Wales did back in 2012

They’re starting to have that AB factor, where you think you’re doing alright against them, but suddenly find yourself 20 points down and they’ve got another gear if they need it.

Congratulations Ireland, fully deserved.

Irish colleagues ..I'll willingly eat humble pie for having the audicity in suggesting Eng would win it!

Cheers all for your congratulations: we did it the hard way and Sexton's DG against France has a massive context attached to it.

Wales have the same number of Grand Slams since 2005 as Ireland have in history, lest we forget.. :P ;)

If Jones and his coaches have any dignity they will fall on their swords! The rate in which we have regressed is purely down to us, and their coaching! In one tournament they have successfully destroyed the previous 2-3 seasons work, and collapsed in ability and nous when the pressure came on. I am not sure who can replace them, but I know that they will not be able to undo what has been done. At the start of this tournament we were looking to be a true challenger for the World Cup, and at a tantilising and titanic battle with the ABs in the AI's. We are now officially only good enough to be also rans at the World cup, with a form and game plan that will see us exit at the group stage. And WE ARE looking at a tanking against the ABs! A new coaching set up will at least give us hope of being competitive.

Eddie Jones and Co, unable the select players correctly, unable to find a style of play. Only able to gain 5 match points in 4 tests and presiding over our worst finish in 35 years. Please go and do not let the door hit your rears on the way out!

Ireland will love this, and rightly so! they have earn't their slam, and when you look at the absolute paucity of success they have historically, It should live long in the memory for them, and they deserve all our congratulations!
