England is back and its reputation restored after upending Ireland 32-20 in the Six Nations defending champion's Lansdowne Road stronghold on Saturday.

The triumph for England was their first win on Irish soil since February 2013, with Jonny May's opening try their first scored in Dublin since 2011.

"And, against a side of England's quality, you're always going to be struggling when you do that". Ireland settled down, but England finished the first half stronger and continued to stress Ireland to the point where it earned a bonus-point four tries.

"I know the players are disappointed that we probably didn't have the same physical edge that they did". Credit to the boys.

Instead, Schmidt found himself being reminded of another match against New Zealand at the same stadium when the All Blacks had taken revenge for their defeat in Chicago when they ripped through Ireland just two weeks later.

"We've talked a lot about the character of the squad and that sort of character has come off the back of putting wins together", added Best. "We executed it perfectly, the boys, one through to 23, put their bodies on the line defensively and it was a really enjoyable game to play in". 'It was the first time I've ever had to play with Manu [Tuilagi].

The Hurricanes entered averaging 74.4 points per game, and, Bennett said, "missed an very bad lot of wide-open looks". Miami got eight points from Lykes including a 3-pointer to end the half and cut the deficit to seven.

Slade also stated he hopes to continue his partnership with Manu Tuilagi in the future. "Who knows, maybe it can carry on".

The England manager backed Slade's comments, stating the work put in on the training pitch made the difference.

'We had a good preparation, ' Jones said. "But we've got good depth". We obviously pleased with our performance.

"I think it's important that you spend this little bit of time reflecting on what was a disappointing and uncharacteristic performance from us and you've got to digest that and you've got to use it in the right way".

'We want to play good England rugby and good England rugby involves attacking kicks'.

Rory Best has challenged
Ireland to reassert their class when they face Scotland in round two of the Six Nations at BT Murrayfield on Saturday.
