  • [substitution] A change of hooker for England as Youngs replaces Hartley
    2/1/2014 6:24:46 PM
  • 61 - A beautifully dummy sends Farrell clear. He is crying out for some support but there is no-one up with him and France get bodies back. England asking plenty of questions of the France defence
    2/1/2014 6:28:12 PM
  • [substitution] The changes continue as Dickson comes on for Care, who had a fantastic game for England at No.9
    2/1/2014 6:29:58 PM
  • We're reached hour mark, with ENG now in control after 18 unanswered points. Pack has wrested momentum, with B. Vunipola supreme. 16-21.
  • 64 - England turn defence into attack through Nowell who so nearly breaks clear on his own. The attack is still on but Farrell goes for a grubber kick instead of keeping the ball in hand and the move breaks down
    2/1/2014 6:32:54 PM
  • England seemed to have just gone up a gear! Showing awesome character after a shaky start! Sooooo happy for the big man @lutherburrell #Eng
  • [substitution] Vunipola comes off for Morgan. Barritt is also on for Nowell
    2/1/2014 6:37:59 PM
  • 68 - England just need to keep their composure here. A couple of handling errors in their own half gives France a scrum on the England 22
    2/1/2014 6:38:28 PM
  • FRA's scrum looks like their best route back into the game; they've got one just outside ENG 22. Front row deliver a pen in-front of posts.
  • [penalty-rugby] England have been out-scrummaged today with Cole finding the set-piece particularly tough. A penalty is awarded and sub Machenaud slots it over from under the posts. England 21-19 France

  • [penalty-rugby] An instant response from England brings them a penalty but Farrell is injured and won't be able to take it. Goode steps up and plants it perfectly down the middle. England 24-19 France
    2/1/2014 6:43:47 PM
  • 75 - Another strong break from Vunipola (Mako) takes England into the France 22 but he can't quite get the pass away. England still pressing and looking for the killer score

  • Preview: Ireland will be hoping to enjoy some home comforts against Scotland - a side that beat them in last year's competition. Despite some improved performances in the autumn internationals, including coming incredibly close to ending New Zealand's perfect record in 2013, the Irish have now won just one of their last five matches at the Aviva Stadium. They have also lost four straight in the Six Nations, but have been beaten just once since 2004 on the opening weekend of the tournament. The match this weekend will provide a landmark moment for Brian O'Driscoll; the centre will win his 129th international cap, taking him past former team-mate Ronan O'Gara's Irish record of 128. The former captain will be joined in midfield by Luke Marshall, the in-form Ulster player getting the chance to start due to Gordon D'Arcy suffering with a stomach bug.
    Scotland have triumphed just once in Dublin since 1998 and will field four Six Nations debutants; lock Tim Swinson, centres Alex Dunbar and Duncan Taylor and flanker Ryan Wilson will all get their first taste of the event.

  • Ireland coach Joe Schmidt reacts to the absence of Paul O'Connell:
    Paul is obviously important. He's the captain, a key decision-maker and adds confidence to the group. We've got to roll our sleeves up and get on with it. I was looking forward to it (First Six Nations match in charge) more last night than today when I heard the news but it's all part of the challenge and we've got to put together the best performance we can.

  • The atmosphere is building inside the Aviva Stadium. Tweet me your predictions to @SkySportsDrabs. I fancy Scotland to spring a surprise here...
    2/2/2014 2:48:46 PM
  • Here come the players. Scotland form a huddle out on the pitch and captain Kelly Brown is very animated in his pre-match team-talk. National anthems on their way...

  • Will Irish eyes be smiling at full-time?
