Eddie Jones reveals yet more Six Nations problems

"Ireland have been head and shoulders above the other five nations in this campaign".

"[Ireland captain] Rory Best has said that we have got to dig deeper than ever against England and that's a brilliant attitude", said Ward. There are some pretty exhausted bodies there, I think Scotland made 190 tackles and we made 135 - that suggests that there was a fair bit of collision stuff out there, and it was very hard work post-tackle as well.

"Rob Kearney, obviously. I think he had 140 running metres with the ball - that's exceptional in any game".

All attentions now turn to whether Ireland can achieve that all-so-elusive Grand Slam at Twickenham.

There was no doubt in the mind of the Irish scrumhalf that Ireland have the resources to win for a reverse of last season, when Ireland prevented Eddie Jones' side from collecting the Grand Slam trophy in the final game.

"I don't think it will be about Ireland, we've got to put some things right and have a good hard look at ourselves in terms of where we're at and what learnings we can take from the last two weeks", he said. 16 times England were penalised by referee Jaco Peyper, with the majority coming for infringements at the ruck, while France were able to seal 12 turnovers throughout the match that gave them fast counter-attacking ball to work with. We've started that with a short run this [Monday] morning and a couple of meetings to get us on the front foot.

"Winning the championship is fantastic but if we were to lose next week I think it would take away somewhat from what we have achieved so far", added the 19-times capped worldwide.

"We won thanks to our defence", said scrumhalf Maxime Machenaud, who converted his four penalties.

"It's great though, building forward into World Cups and before that, the Championship next year, that we've built a bit of depth". The lineout setpiece came under serious pressure against Scotland like it did in Murrayfield a year ago and for all the possession and territory, Ireland should probably be exiting the "Red Zone" with more points.

"It's very muted upstairs". We've reflected on the game and we did enough to win, but sometimes the result doesn't go your way. We know how hard it's going to be with England. Ireland's autumn is still up in the air, but none other than New Zealand are confirmed visitors to Dublin on the third weekend of the window - which would represent game number 18 since that defeat in Wales a year ago.
