England will be gunning for Grand Slam revenge - Sexton

At 9pm today the rain will head to the west

But Townsend conceded gifting Ireland an interception try and blowing three try-scoring chances cost his side. "It's going to take us some time (to adapt), it's not going to come quickly". And obviously one [interception] which led to seven points to them. Expect fireworks if they are still in with a sniff of the title and know exactly what they have to do. "We've got to be hungry for the win but we've got to play smart as well".

It all started in the most dramatic of circumstances as a 45-metre drop goal from Johnny Sexton with the very last kick of the game - and after 41 phases - ensured Ireland got their Six Nations campaign off to a winning start in France.

Ireland's Conor Murray tackled by Scotland's John barclay during their Six Nations rugby match at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland, Saturday March 10, 2018.

"I remember playing Scotland in Croke Park for a Triple Crown and nearly taking it for granted because I thought "a Triple Crown, I'll have plenty of more opportunities for this" and I still haven't won a Triple Crown". "Our last away game [against Wales] was poor, but today was much better".

"It's just a reflection of the standards set under Joe Schmidt".

"We've been criticised a lot, but we never lost faith in the squad", the hooker said.

The captain's armband has been given to centre Owen Farrell, who was England's most aggressive player against the triumphant Scots. "It's freakish again because we won it watching a game over which we didn't have any control over but we managed to control enough of the things that we were involved with to get the 19 points on the table that we needed".

He campaigned his a- off. "I'm not going to weigh into someone who doesn't work at the White House", she said . It requests all records relating to 10 people, including Donald Trump and his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen .

"If we can get three wins in such a competitive championship, with such quality teams, that would be a great outcome. The shoe is on the other foot after past year and I'm sure they will be licking their lips".

"So for us it's about making sure we perform and play well, and get the result".

The broken nature of the game made it hard for either team to produce moments of real quality and Jonny May's stabbed kick into the dead ball area was probably the closest either side came to a try in the first half - and Elliot Daly was a good few metres away from that.

"We will look back on it when we lift the trophy next weekend and say that was a huge moment", added the 32-year-old. "It's our expectation of ourselves that we turn up and we're really competitive next week".

"Credit to Ireland; they are relentless and they hold on to the ball well".

"After we took the lead, we just breathed a sigh of relief, and at this level if you breathe a sigh of relief and go, 'This feels comfortable, this feels good, we're in control, ' bang, just like that, you lose control again".
