THE LOWDOWN

IRELAND

  • Andrew Conway scored a hat-trick to help Ireland demolish USA 57-14 in Dublin and extend their home win streak to 12 matches

ENGLAND

  • England claimed a sixth consecutive victory over Australia as they put in an impressive display to beat them 37-18 at Twickenham in November
  • England's Owen Farrell is expected to recover from minor surgery on his thumb and captain the side in Dublin on Saturday

THE PREDICTION
