Sir Ian McGeechan selects his England XV to face Ireland

Telegraph columnist and respected rugby legend Sir Ian McGeechan took on the task of creating a game plan for England to use in the Six Nations against Ireland.

“It is important England do not panic now, that they do not throw out their game plan just because it has not yet clicked,” wrote McGeechan.

“It is fair to say England have not yet hit the heights in this Six Nations. You can see what they are trying to do. They want to accelerate the ball in phase play and get on the front foot.

“They want to play fast, dynamic rugby. Jones is setting up his team to play that way.”
