- Ireland are unbeaten in their last 14 home games in the Six Nations (W12, D2), before that run they had never gone more than seven such matches in the Five or Six Nations without defeat.

But after missing France's first two Six Nations matches this year - both lost - due to a ban for uttering a homophobic slur in a club game, his return has given the team a huge boost.

Given the level of attrition that we have suffered in three tough games so far, this week will be about fine-tuning an already immaculate game-plan and getting bodies recovered.

"We're going to have to save the best for last, and that's what it's going to take to win everything next week", said Best. "They'll be gunning for us".

Having rued an inspired Scottish display at Murrayfield last weekend, English fans will have been praying for a second-half recovery but had to watch through their fingers as Murray was dragged over the line to edge Ireland closer to the all-important bonus point.

With a championship in sight and several years' experience of challenging at the business end of the competition, the Irish pulled away to a 20-point victory which ended any hopes of a Scottish title charge. Just last month they had gone eight matches without a win.

Ireland now seems to have the ability to turn games around directly prior to half time as they did against Wales a fortnight ago at the same venue.

"That's how you build a team - with a defence, because you can see that every player fights for the other".

Although the infraction appeared accidental, with Fall diving low for the line, referee Jaco Peyper appeared to have little option but to sin-bin the England full-back.

They then watched England's attempt to stay in the race collapse with a second straight loss, to France 22-16 in Paris.

Woodward was clear over England's greatest failing at the Stade de France, where the French scored a penalty try and five penalty goals.

But England gave away yet another penalty and Beauxis kicked it. Beauxis failed to find touch in injury time to extend some suspense.

As the Aviva Stadium crowd became more and more frustrated with the lack of Irish progress, Bundee Aki nearly claimed his third try in the green jersey of Ireland, but was unfortunately held up as he attempted to cross the line at what must be his favourite spot at the ground, just left of the left hand post where he had scored his two previous Ireland tries. "We haven't been quick enough to adjust to that", Haskell said.

Joe Schmidt has warned England "history doesn't protect you from the future" as NatWest 6 Nations champions Ireland chase the Grand Slam at Twickenham next weekend.

France travels to Wales for the final round.
