RECAP: Ireland v England
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our live coverage of the Six Nations Round Five match between Ireland and England in Dublin.
Both sides are hoping to end on a high note after mixed campaigns.
Ireland’s last Stander, Christiaan Stander, was born in South Africa but has given his heart and soul in the green jersey of Ireland after qualifying through residency rules.
The 30-year-old will end his career with Ireland with his 51st cap following his shock announcement this week that he would be retiring at the end of the season.
