ESPN's Six Nations review: Player of the weekend, flop and more

Six Nations Grand Slam winners Ireland have been forced to cancel their homecoming party in Dublin due to bad weather.

Rory Best has declared captaining Ireland to just their third-ever Grand Slam as a dream come true.

Two of those tries suspiciously involved knock-ons but there was no doubt that Ireland deserved a victory built on a decisive attack in the first half and defense in the second as England rallied amid snow flurries.

A planned homecoming celebration for the Irish rugby team on Sunday afternoon has been cancelled due to poor weather conditions in the east of the country.

"It's up there as the biggest highlight of my career".

Jones, 58, won 24 of his first 25 Tests after replacing Stuart Lancaster in the wake of England's disastrous 2015 World Cup, landing back-to-back Six Nations titles. At the minute that's New Zealand.

"We weren't happy being the team we were... we knew we weren't good enough to get where we wanted to get".

Remarks against Jaya Bachchan shameful: Harsimrat Kaur Badal
Just because she could dance and act in films , my candidature (to Rajya Sabha) has been sacrificed for her. In his 38-Years political career, Naresh Agarwal has changed the party six times.

"To show the steel that they did, the commitment and just plain, ordinary rugby ability to keep the ball", recalled Schmidt.

Eddie Jones made light of being booed by disgruntled supporters after England's defeat at Twickenham that saw Ireland crowned Grand Slam champions.

Gael Fickou scored a try for France, with Maxime Machenaud kicking a conversion and penalty and Francois Trinh-Duc adding a drop-goal. We owed (defence coach) Andy Farrell one.

12 straight Test victories now, unbeaten in a year. I can't control what you say, what the crowd does.

Schmidt's side have been ruthless and utterly clinical in everything they have done during this championship, and enormity of the achievement is magnified when you consider only twice before have Ireland come back from Paris and London with victories in the same season.

"We have an opportunity to re-focus and learn and get better. It's not often that happens in the Six Nations".
