England rugby coach Eddie Jones told to solve THIS Six Nations problem

Ireland's title hopes were derailed by a 27-22 defeat by Scotland at Murrayfield last year

Jones suggested England's breakdown woes were a deep-rooted problem within the English game, although refused to blame the Premiership, but conceded it may take until next year's World Cup at the earliest before there is tangible improvement.

England lost consecutive matches under Jones for the first time after defeats by Scotland and France, with Saturday's 22-16 loss in Paris leading to Ireland being crowned as the new Six Nations champions. "I am not a punter but I had a small punt on them for the Slam". Joe Schmidt's team are now chasing what would be only their third Grand Slam following clean sweeps in 1948 and 2009. I think Andy Farrell gives us all the tools during the week, and we just need to go out there and perform for him.

"For any competition that is a good starting point".

"They will push England bloody close", he said.

Should they lose to Ireland next weekend it will be their worst performance in the Six Nations since 2006, which is the most recent occasion they won only two games.

Eddie Jones believes despite two "very painful" defeats which ended England's two year Six Nations reign they can learn from the experience and bounce back. "The game is changing a little bit, and we are probably slow to adapt to it".

O'Driscoll insisted the Irish won't ease to victory, though.

"I've spoken to players, ex-players, retired players that played there and they've got it". Jordi Murphy later made a significant impact during his 25-minute cameo off the bench, while try scorer Sean Cronin and Jack McGrath also added to Ireland's forward play in the latter stages.

Thankfully, despite all of their best intentions - and to be fair, they did play a HELL of a game - the Scots simply couldn't penetrate the Irish defence for the majority of the game, and when all was said and done, the Irish sailed passed them on the scoreboard, to the tune of 28-8.

"The players constantly churn out "next game, next game" to the media and you have to pay respect to Scotland and not look beyond that if you're a player but the Grand Slam is definitely in the back of your mind".

"Logic would dictate that you bring Brown back, but I don't think Watson did much wrong yesterday".

"Three (Six Nations titles) in five years, there are some very consistent personnel during that period".

"They're wounded, but they're far from dead and buried".
