Worrying Scenes For Ireland As Two Players Limp Off & England Sink Them For 50

Battered.

Ireland’s World Cup preparations were dealt an absolute hammer blow this afternoon as England made light work of them in a 57-15 defeat at Twickenham Stadium.

Joe Schmidt’s men took an early lead through Jordan Larmour in the eight minute after Owen Farrell had scored a penalty. But after that it was one way traffic.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

And to make matters even worse Conor Murray and Cian Healy both picked up worrying injuries in the first half leaving Ireland absolutely battered and bruised on top of a humiliating defeat at the hands of their old rivals.

Up next for Ireland it’s Wales home and away – and if it’s anything like today, the men in green will be seriously worried.
