15- Henderson with a nice carry for Ireland, takes play to just short of the England 22.

16- Ominous from Ireland here, 13 phases and counting

17- The ball goes forward from Aki, big chance that for Ireland goes begging. 0-7

18- Scrums so far have been messy at best. Another reset.

19- Ireland are pinged at the scrum, England have a chance to clear. Yet to really get going the home side

20- Horrendous knock on from Kruis, gives Ireland the ball back and they win a penalty.

22- Sexton steps up.... off the post! 0-7

TRY IRELAND!! Pretty sure they've scored here as Sexton feeds Aki who breaks away to the 22, he then pass to CJ Stander who looks to have grounded it at the base of the post. Just checking with the TMO.

TRY AWARDED! Ireland with one hand on the Grand Slam already. Stander the scorer

Sexton converts. England 0-14 Ireland (24)
