Ireland 32 – 18 England
A vastly improved Ireland finished their Guinness Six Nations campaign on a high after beating England at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.
Although Ireland’s win moves them up to second in the table their final standing will not be decided until France and Scotland meet next week in their re-arranged fixture that will end this season’s competition.
Eddie Jones’ side are now set for a fifth-place finish.
