How to watch England v Ireland online: 6 Nations rugby live stream

Today's 6 Nations action continues this afternoon as England play Ireland at Twickenham

With the final round of 6 Nations games all taking place today, this is Ireland's chance to win the tournament and complete a Grand Slam for the first time since 2009.

Joe Schmidt's side have won 11 tests in a row, and make only one change as they look to record their third Grand Slam, with Iain Henderson taking over from Devin Toner at lock.

In contrast, England, who were many pundits' tip for the top prize, could finish fifth in the table with a defeat, making this potentially their worst performance since 2006.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Eddie Jones has run the changes following last weekend's defeat to France. Dylan Hartley returns as captain after missing the match in Paris, with James Haskell and Sam Simmonds coming into the pack. Owen Farrell also returns to number 10, with George Ford dropped, as Ben Te'o moves to inside-centre and Richard Wigglesworth comes in at scrum-half.
