- Ben Youngs hopes the bitter experience of England's last attempt to win a Grand Slam in Ireland will help prevent another Dublin debacle this weekend. Victory for England over Ireland would see them complete back-to-back Grand Slams and mean they had set a new record of 19 consecutive Test victories by a leading rugby union nation. But six years ago they arrived at Lansdowne Road just 80 minutes away from a Six Nations clean sweep only to suffer a chastening 24-8 defeat. "I remember I think (Ireland's) Tommy Bowe scored with a quick tap. I don’t know what the score was at half-time (17-3 to Ireland) but it was probably chasing it in wet weather," Youngs said. "You don’t want to put yourself in a position where you’re chasing the game as early on as we were in 2011."
