England relied on forward dominance and hat-trick hero Jamie George’s try-scoring exploits to thrash Georgia 40-0 on the same ground last weekend, though some terrible weather conditions prevented them from showcasing much fluent attacking rugby.
The Six Nations champions should be offered a much sterner test today by an Ireland team – coached by former England defence guru Andy Farrell – that handed Wales their sixth successive loss on opening night.
Ireland’s task of attempting to arrest a run of three emphatic losses to England will be made all the harder by the absence of captain Johnny Sexton, who is sidelined with a hamstring injury.
