'England took their chances well, credit to them. A few unforced errors helped them get a cushion. We got ourselves back to six-all, but today we weren't quite on the money.'
IRELAND HEAD COACH DECLAN KIDNEY
'England played a smart game with the conditions. They put us under pressure (in our half) and got a good return from that. It's a tough one to take, there's a lot of lads bruised and battered in the changing room.'
IRELAND CAPTAIN JAMIE HEASLIP
