England currently lead the Six Nations table on points difference after their 30 point win over Italy on Saturday, Ireland also secured their second victory of the campaign by defeating France 18-11 at the Aviva Stadium.
Johnny Sexton was the only Irish player included in the BBC’s Six Nations team of the week after a defensively resolute Ireland failed to hit top form. England’s Dan Cole and Jonathan Joseph were included after their 47-17 defeat of Italy.
Sexton provided Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt with an injury boost as he didn’t suffer a concussion after a vicious clash of heads with France’s Centre Mathieu Bastareaud.
The Irish fly-half had only returned to action against the French after a medical ban due to suffering four concussions in the past year while playing for club Racing Metro.
However the IRFU have announced Jamie Heaslip has been ruled out after being on the end of a knee into the back from France’s Pascal Pape. The Leinster number 8 will miss the England match but could be in contention to return to action against Wales.
England have their own injury concerns after full back Mike Brown was knocked unconscious after a collision with Italy’s Andrea Masi, England head coach Stuart Lancaster has said he will monitor Brown’s fitness over the two week break.
That certainly helps the fact that it is two weeks and a day,” said Lancaster. “But we will take him through the return to play protocol.”
Ireland are slight favourites going into the clash due to having home advantage, however the team that performs best on the day is likely to win a tightly contested encounter.
The Irish have won their past nine test matches, dating back to the 2014 loss to the Red Roses. Methodical and determined has marked the Irish style of play that succeeded producing wins against Australia and South Africa during this past autumn’s test series. England lost to the All-Blacks in the same fall tour.
