Having disposed of Scotland at the weekend Stephen Ferris and the Ireland team now have England firmly in their sights ahead of the final Six Nations game at Twickenham this weekend.

The giant Ulsterman knows just how hard it will be next weekend having watched Stuart Lancaster’s side beat France 24-22 at the weekend.

“I’ve been fortunate to win with Ireland at Twickenham and I know that you have to be on top of your game to get a result,” Ferris said.

“We are improving week on week and are happy with our set-piece, but we know England are strong there.

“They won’t concede any soft tries, like Scotland did, either.

“We have to chase the box-kicks down hard and get behind them. Rob Kearney is going to be busy in the air again.”
