On this day in 2017: Ireland ended England’s world record-winning run

England’s world record winning streak of 18 came to an end on this day in 2017 with a 13-9 loss to Ireland.

The Dublin defeat ended England’s bid for a second successive Grand Slam in the Six Nations.

Ireland overwhelmed England with their intensity and physicality as Ian Henderson’s first half try proved decisive.

England manager Eddie Jones said: “Everything was wrong in the preparation because we played that way.

“I take full responsibility, I did not prepare the team well and we will respond in the future.

“It was a tight old match. A thing or two that go your way and turn the game around, they didn’t pull in our way today.

“We didn’t work hard enough to get these opportunities and that’s what happens.”

Henderson’s try and eight points from the boot of Johnny Sexton put Ireland in command in front of a raucous crowd.

Owen Farrell kicked three penalties for the England side who were given a consolation to retain the Six Nations title.

Ireland’s victory moved them to second place in the table, ahead of France and Scotland on points difference.

England’s 18 Test success matched the world record held by New Zealand.
