Try deluge not enough for England

England scored seven tries in beating France 55-35 in a phenomenal contest at Twickenham, but fell agonisingly short of winning the Six Nations as Ireland retained their title

Match Commentary

81'In summary....

IRELAND ARE SIX NATIONS CHAMPIONS, 2015

Tom Hamilton: "In the end it was just too big a margin. England can feel hugely proud of their efforts. Ben Youngs was superb. They will go into the World Cup a wounded beast. It may yet be the making of this team."

Thank you for your company throughout this match, this afternoon and throughout the Six Nations championship. It's been a thrilling end to the tournament and sets rugby up beautifully for the Rugby World Cup. Roll on September 18, and the curtain-raiser: England v Fiji at Twickenham.

We'll be there - you should be too!
