  • Ryan Hall try (England 24-0 Ireland) Hall has a 22-minute hat-trick. That is five tries already for England's wingers. England are keeping the ball alive at every opportunity and there are holes everywhere in Ireland's defence. Looked like a forward pass from Kallum Watkins to Kevin Sinfield in the build-up but wasn't spotted. Cudjoe again delivered Hall with the scoring pass.
