    Chance to make some memories

    Ireland go into the final game of the Guinness Six Nations calendar today with their eyes firmly set on a Grand Slam.

    Having never won one in front of their own fans, this could be something Irish fans talk about for years to come.

    The Aviva Stadium looks tranquil as we edge towards kick-off.

    Welcome to Ireland vs England

    Andy Farrell’s side have the chance to clinch a Grand Slam at home for the first time in their history against England, a side who have caused heartbreak for Irish fans over the years.

    Johnny Sexton has a new partner in the half-backs today with Jamison Gibson-Park coming into the side ahead of Conor Murray who will have to settle for a place on the bench today.

    The injury Garry Ringrose suffered last week means he will miss the game so Robbie Henshaw comes into the centre, while Ryan Baird will come in to replace Henderson in the second row.

    Good news for Ireland came in the form of Doris and Sheehan passing fitness tests for this crunch game.

    Rob Herring comes into the squad on the bench with Kelleher injured, while Kieran Treadwell and Jimmy O’Brien both come into the matchday squad.

    For England, Owen Farrell returns to the starting XV after missing the drubbing by France at Twickenham, with Marcus Smith returning to the bench.

    Manu Tuilagi is recalled and will make his first appearance of this year’s tournament at number 12 in place of the injured Ollie Lawrence.

    Henry Arundell comes in on the left wing, replacing Max Malins, while Ollie Chessum misses out through injury and is replaced by David Ribbans.

    Dan Cole is on the bench today but if he were to come on, he would join Jason Leonard, Ben Youngs and Owen Farrell in the England 100-cap club.

    Joe Marchant and Nick Isiekwe come into the matchday squad with Malins dropping out of the squad entirely.
