There were fascinating duels across the board at Twickenham, but Owen Farrell v Johnny Sexton was the box office clash. England and Ireland’s prize fighters faced each other with the weight of their respective nations on their shoulders. No change there, then. They joined forces to guide the Lions to a drawn series in New Zealand as a 10-12 axis for the ages last summer.
Jacob Stockdale scored two tries to help Ireland to a comfortable 28-8 win over Scotland in a crucial Six Nations encounter in Dublin. Stockdale, along with tries from Conor Murray and Sean Cronin, ensured Joe Schmidt's side remained on course for a Grand Slam and, importantly, heaped significant pressure on England ahead of their match with France. Blair Kinghorn went over for the visitors but Ireland were simply too strong on the day and bagged a bonus point in victory.
International scandal, last-gasp losses, bans, recalls, a revolving-door selection policy and a first visit to Marseille in the Six Nations. February was quite the month for Jacques Brunel. France’s new head coach knew he had a big job on his hands when he succeeded the sacked Guy Noves, but the 64-year-old has been plagued by fiasco after fiasco since his appointment in late December. A calamitous championship campaign came to a head after France’s 32-26 defeat by Scotland at Murrayfield.
Ireland seal only third Grand Slam in history.

A first win at Twickenham for Ireland since 2010 and England's first home loss since the 2015 Word Cup.
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".
