Eddie Jones has released the side he has chosen to face Ireland this weekend.
Although England have to beat Ireland to break the 18 game unbeaten record, Joe Marler has insisted that they feel under less pressure than they did at this point in last years tournament. Ireland have said that they are not focusing on breaking the streak, which may seem odd considering the rivalry between the two home nations.
If Eddie’s side win themselves another grand slam, will they be better than the All Blacks? Or will it have to wait until the two top sides meet to decide who is truly the best side in the world? The two were set to be facing each other in the November of next year, but it is now possible that they will come head to head in this years Autumn Internationals instead, after the RFU’s bid to play the All Blacks sooner.
