Few would have predicted the English to be in this position following their World Cup exit in 2015, but under the tutelage of Eddie Jones and a new coaching team they have grown into a dangerous animal that also is one victory away from a Tier 1 record of 19 successive wins.
Reaching that number at the Aviva Stadium will be no mean feat, however, especially against an Ireland side hurting after losing to Wales.
Yes they are missing scrum-half Conor Murray and full-back Rob Kearney due to injury, but write off Joe Schmidt’s charges at your peril as whether they deny it or not, they will be determined to spoil the English party on Saturday.
England meanwhile will be desperate to avoid another 2001 scenario when they lifted the Six Nations silverware at Lansdowne Road but missed out on the Grand Slam after a 20-14 defeat.
They look the real deal at the moment and slack Scottish midfield defence or not, the English threw down a marker at Twickenham last week. The George Ford-Owen Farrell partnership came of age while Jonathan Joseph looked almost embarrassed at how easily he claimed a hat-trick.
In Dublin they have the boost of naming Billy Vunipola in their starting XV for the first time this year while from 1 to 23 it is fair to say that none of their players are struggling for form.
That is where England have the edge as confidence in their game appears sky high.
For Ireland they enter on the back of that poor performance in Cardiff, which was a game not dissimilar to this as now it will be them who are under pressure to shine after a loss.
If they are to hit back and end on a high they must concentrate their frustrations on upsetting the English fluidity whilst imposing their own high-paced physical style on their rival. Keeping their discipline in check is also vital.
England though should possess a touch more in their arsenal and even in what promises to be a hostile environment, it’s looking like being more 2003 than 2001 for this Six Nations finale. That would mean all smiles with the silverware, something Ireland will be eager to avoid.
