We are underway at the Aviva Stadium

England have lost six of their past seven Six Nations matches in Dublin.

Their last win came in 2013 when they triumphed 12-6.

Eddie Jones is hoping his side can cause an upset.

“Everyone is writing them up and they have got to carry that expectation round,” he said.

“We’re excited about playing there. Praise can make you weak.

“You want to play the best in the world away from home and Ireland are the best at the moment.

“I never use the status of being underdogs, it’s never been one of the tricks of the trade because we never think we’re not better than the opposition.”
