- Ireland beat England 13-9 to deny the visitors a record-breaking Grand Slam victory in Dublin. Had England, who'd already won a second straight Six Nations title, come out on top they would have surpassed the record of 18 consecutive Test wins they share with world champions New Zealand and become the first side in the Six Nations era to complete back-to-back Grand Slams. But Ireland, who ended the All Blacks' winning streak with a 40-29 win in Chicago in November, proved too strong. Lock Iain Henderson went over in the 24th minute, with the rest of Ireland's points kicked by fly-half Jonathan Sexton. All England, who ran in seven tries during last week's 61-21 rout of Scotland, had to show for their efforts were three Owen Farrell penalties as they suffered their first defeat under Australian coach Eddie Jones.
