Ireland’s Six Nations defence began with a surprise defeat to England, as Joe Schmidt’s side fell to a thrilling 32-20 loss at the Aviva Stadium.

Schmidt tasted defeat at home in the Six Nations for the first time since taking over in February 2013, and Saturday’s loss was only his fifth defeat in 29 matches in charge of Ireland.

England began much the quicker side in a fiercely contested encounter, scoring after just 90 seconds as Elliot Daly finished a well-worked move to put Eddie Jones’ side ahead.

Ireland replied well and scored through Cian Healey after 25 minutes, but went into half time trailing 17-10 after Daly capitalised on Jacob Stockdale’s fumble for England’s second try of the game.

Johnny Sexton converted a penalty early in the second half to reduce England’s lead to just four points before Henry Slade scored two tries to put the game beyond doubt.

Ireland did manage to grab a consolation try through John Cooney but couldn’t secure a losing bonus point, as England secured their first victory in Dublin for six years.
