Ireland Dominate England in Six Nations

Ireland march on towards a possible Grand Slam after inflicting a thumping defeat on a misfiring England reports BBC Sport

Four penalties from Jonathan Sexton and a second-half try from centre Robbie Henshaw opened up an unbridgeable gap which accurately reflected the one-sided nature of what was expected to be a tight contest.

England were outplayed in all departments, starting slowly, consistently second-best at the breakdown and all too fallible under the high ball until a late rally.

Ireland make Cricket World Cup rivals nervous

Ireland’s World Cup win over West Indies surpassed their toppling of England four years ago and will make their Pool B rivals “very nervous”, says Graeme Swann BBC Sport

Ireland chased 305 to beat the Windies by four wickets with 25 balls left in their opening match in Nelson.

“This is a better victory than the one against England four years ago,” said former England spinner Swann.
“That was a one-man show from Kevin O’Brien. This was a team effort.”

Australia thrash England again

England were outclassed by an impressive Australia in a 111-run defeat on the opening day of the World Cup in Melbourne reports BBC Sport

Aaron Finch, dropped on nought by Chris Woakes in the first over, hammered 135 and Glenn Maxwell a 40-ball 66 to propel the co-hosts to 342-9.
Chasing the biggest score they had ever conceded in a one-day international against Australia never seemed likely for England and a top-order collapse further demonstrated the gulf in class.
