England legend makes bold prediction for todays match at Twickenham

It’s been a week to forget for Eddie Jones and England and if Ireland win on Saturday the knives will sharpen after a dismal Six Nations.

Following losses to Scotland and France in their recent outings, England did not need off-field matters to then dominate media headlines.

But England legend and 2003 Rugby World Cup-winner Jason Robinson is still backing the men in white to snatch a narrow victory.



Who are you backing today?!
