'Honeymoon period' over for England boss Jones, says Woodward

As the clock ticks down to the date of destiny against England this weekend, we were joined by former Ireland head coach Eddie O'Sullivan and ex-Leinster captain Liam Toland to both reflect on the weekend and begin casting an eye towards Twickenham. We still don't know whether he will be available or not.

"We are a rugby team and no rugby team has an aura of invincibility about them".

Having studiously avoided talk of a possible Grand Slam over the last month, Murray says there is no longer any point denying the magnitude of what is at stake on St Patrick's Day on Saturday.

"That's going to be our motivation, and making sure we put on the right performance and learn from the things that we've learnt the last couple of weeks and fix the problems that we have". Yet, Stander has total faith in the structures employed by defence coach Andy Farrell, which ensured that the Scots only had a single five-pointer courtesy of winger Blair Kinghorn.

Rare Kentucky-Tennessee final offers Cats a shot at redemption
We got swept in the series this season. "They're a totally different team than they were then", Barnes said of Kentucky . Wenyen Gabriel has played huge in this tournament, and his 3-point shooting performance on Saturday was one to remember.

Jones had reshuffled his backline too after the loss to Scotland, in which form centre Huw Jones had scored twice and created a third try in the first half as England's frailty in the outside channel was brutally exposed.

"We are not adapting to the referee's interpretation at the ruck as well as we should". Today we just wanted to go out there and show that we can defend how we want to.

"No, not at all", said Jones when asked did he lack belief in his players.

Stander delivered a typically assertive performance in a back row that also included Peter O'Mahony and Dan Leavy, who is growing in confidence every time he pulls on an Irish jersey.

Taylor ruled out of fifth ODI
Bairstow dominated the bowlers, smashing nine fours and six sixes as he thrashed a century from just 58 balls. Morgan's men have won nine of their last 10 50-over series as they build towards a home World Cup next year.

"It will be last minute stuff, it will be all hands to the pump", he said. It's probably something they looked on and how they can come into the game and improve it.

"On the other side, there's always something with every team, you never play the ideal game, maybe you're trying to do that so there's always fixes - definitely with this group, with the experience, the new guys coming in, the younger generation that have added so much, there's something there, there's another level that we're striving towards". I think they always want to see what's going on and fit in, and get on from there. "They did that job perfectly".

"People say: "you must want to do this, you must want to do that", it's not really about that, it's about winning in the shirt". You couldn't make it up.
