With the victory England have now put themselves into the perfect position to welcome Wales back to Twickenham Stadium

By Emma Thurston #OutOnTheFull  “In terms of where we’ve come from the start of the 6 Nations to today I think that today was a pretty decent set up.” Those were the words of a fairly content Eddie Jones following England’s 21-10 victory over Ireland and he is right. Over the opening three RBS 6 Nations matches we’ve seen England grow in stature each time that they’ve taken to the field and on home soil they moved up another notch on the performance ladder.
