Stockdale is like one of NZ wingers who comes out of no where and has as many tries as caps... #finisher— Aidan O'Shea (@AIDOXI) March 17, 2018
It's always nice when the Irish get Twickenham to themselves. A slam with wins in Paris and London. It doesn't get better than that! pic.twitter.com/vBVGlH4191— Gerry Thornley (@gerrythornley) March 17, 2018
Joe Schmidt’s side beat England 24-15, adding a Triple Crown and Grand Slam to the Six Nations title they won last week against Scotland at the Aviva.
A third Championship in five years for this remarkable team.
