England vs Ireland player ratings: 2022 Six Nations

England vs Ireland player ratings as Andy Farrell’s men kept their title chances alive with a bonus-point win following Charlie Ewels red card .

Following the forwards dismissal after just 58 seconds, the visitors raced into an eight point lead through a Johnny Sexton penalty and James Lowe try.

Hugo Keenan got a second score for the Irish before the break, however, three penalties from Marcus Smith ensured the 14 men of England remained in the game, 9-15.

Two more penalties from Smith after the break levelled the scores before Sexton’s boot edged the visitors back ahead.

Despite England’s spirited defence and a bubblin atmosphere, Ireland took advantage of tiring legs to secure the bonus-point through late tries from Jack Conan and Finlay Bealham.
