England hope Maro Itoje will return for the end of their Six Nations campaign after he suffered a knee injury in his side's dramatic opening victory against Ireland.

"That's the exciting thing, I think".

The visitors imposed themselves on the game from the outset with Jonny May scoring a try after just two minutes and they dominated their opponents for the remainder of the match going in 17-10 ahead at half time before adding two more tries in the second period through Henry Slade.

"I never use the status of being underdogs, it's never been one of the tricks of the trade because we never think we're not better than the opposition".

With Italy away to come next the game with England in Cardiff is not surprisingly the hottest ticket in town right now and Wales shouldn't be underestimated as they look to upset the odds and topple a much fancied England side.

"We couldn't assume we could rock up and just deliver a performance that they would accept". "They are a top team who are well drilled by an outstanding coach". I thought our intensity, particularly in the first part of the game, was outstanding.

"I suppose it was the first time I stayed on injured and tried to run it off because I'm usually quite good at knowing my body and when to come off, so from that aspect I probably should have come off earlier". We'll go through it and find out why that was. We're nowhere near our best.

Sala disappeared on January 21 en route to Cardiff from Nantes after finalising a transfer deal to join the Premier League club. Dorset Police said they would continue to support the coroner's investigation into the circumstances of the crash.

"We'll have a hard look at ourselves".

"He's in your face, he's someone teams do not want to play against".

After a week on a Portuguese training field, here was the Jones blueprint in full flow on the biggest occasion, against the No2 side in the world and in a game which could set the tone not only for the Six Nations, but the entire World Cup year.

Ireland hang onto second place in the World Rugby Rankings and England move up to third. "They've been consistently good".

Joe Schmidt, Ireland head coach: "I don't think for a moment that it's going to be boring".

Ireland winger Keith Earls will be hurting more than most after Saturday's Six Nations loss to England at the Aviva Stadium - both physically and mentally.
