England failed to record back-to-back grand slams in the six nations tournament and saw their record-breaking run of wins ended by Ireland, as the reigning champions saw errors creep into every aspect of their game, losing 13 -9.

Eighteen wins in a row will take some repeating, however, and England are champions again even if defeat at the hands of the Irish was not supposed to be in the script.

In the other matches France secured third spot by grasping a last-second try against Wales in the 100th minute of play after an extraordinary period of added time as France retained possession in a push for the Welsh line and the Welsh defended like tigers.

Scotland put Italy to the sword 29-0 to protect their world number five ranking ahead of the 2019 World Cup draw.
