Sports247.ng gathered that another Nigerian-born player, Nick Isiekwe has been called up instead, after Itoje was declared unavailable.

"I suppose in the warm-up, if you look at our back line, we are a bunch of quiet lads anyway".

"I am frustrated that we do tend to start slow and we can't afford to".

"I think we're a very realistic group, we don't get ahead of ourselves".

Itoje sustained the injury to his right knee in the second half of England's win at the Aviva Stadium when being cleared out of a ruck by Ireland flanker Peter O'Mahony.

After a week on a Portuguese training field, here was the Jones blueprint in full flow on the biggest occasion, against the No2 side in the world and in a game which could set the tone not only for the Six Nations, but the entire World Cup year.

Eagles inform Foles they'll pick up $20M option
Earlier Monday ESPN's Tim McManus reported the Eagles informed Foles they will exercise his option for the 2019 season. But when Wentz went down with another late-year injury, Foles again sparkled and led the Eagles back to the playoffs.

Ireland were heralded by Jones as the strongest team in the world leading into the Dublin collision, but having dispatched them with a near-faultless display he refused to make any bold predictions for Japan 2019.

"Physically we know we can be up at that level, but we were just off and we've got to sort that out".

"It's something that happened to us two years ago against the All Blacks - we got bullied here".

"As far as England are concerned, we will take a quick look back at them but for us now, it is all about Scotland and we will try to springboard our way in from there".

To give England their credit, they much deserved their victory, they bettered Ireland all over the pitch and according to Conor Murray they were "more pumped" for the occasion.

Some have wondered if Ireland, who have never before got past the World Cup quarterfinals, had peaked too soon, while others have questioned if they can cope with the pressure of the huge expectation they find themselves under.

These two sides have dominated the competition since 2013, with the Irish looking to secure back-to-back Championship's under Joe Schmidt.

"We couldn't assume we could rock up and just deliver a performance that they would accept".

"It was actually the first kick-off, I think it was Itoje twice, the first kick-off and then the one in the air", Earls explained.

"But we were off physically to start things off".
