Ireland ended the Six Nations campaign with a 13-9 win over England.

In a physical match, Ireland never trailed against the back-to-back champions with Iain Henderson scoring the game's only try.

Johnny Sexton and Owen Farrell traded penalty kicks, but England's quest for a World Record 19th win in a row was denied on Saturday evening.

Ireland's win also confirmed the team's place as top seeds for the 2019 Rugby World Cup draw, which will take place in May.
