England take on Ireland this evening as the third round of matches of Six Nations 2016 reaches a conclusion at Twickenham, a venue at which Ireland are aiming to win for the first time since 2010.
This is the first home fixture for new England head coach Eddie Jones after away clashes with Scotland and Italy, and victory would enhance the team’s chances of winning the Triple Crown and Grand Slam.
Despite Ireland’s recent successes in this championship, their recent record against England is poor, losing five of the last six meetings, including a friendly international on this ground in September.
Coverage starts at 4.25pm on ITV and ITV HD, where Mark Pougatch is joined in the studio by Jonny Wilkinson, Brian O’Driscoll and Clive Woodward.
Commentary comes from Nick Mullins, Gordon D’Arcy and Lawrence Dallaglio with reports from Martin Bayfield and Jason Robinson.
