Back in the side and showed his ability to find a way through opposition defences. Edged his battle in Rome with Scotland’s Stuart Hogg, who also stood out. Credit to Keith Earls for his excellent tap tackle on Elliot Daly, but Fickou’s try against Wales was a moment of individual brilliance and he was industrious throughout coming off his wing.
Fifth is England’s worst NatWest Six Nations finish since the tournament started and the three losses brings their record under coach, Eddie Jones, to Played 28, Won 24, Lost 4 – which doesn’t really fit together, does it? That England have not played well in the Six Nations is axiomatic. Their deficiencies in certain units of the team and their technical problems are well known and have been the subject of endless comment, not least in this column.
Ireland’s coronation on Saturday at Twickenham encapsulated their NatWest 6 Nations campaign. Joe Schmidt’s team rode to a Grand Slam with a performance that combined intelligence with measured intensity. In many ways, the game also provided a microcosm of England’s tournament. The hosts appeared mentally and physically fatigued. Here is a run-down of the moments that highlighted the gap between the sides.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
