Jacob Stockdale became the first player to score seven tries in a Six Nations campaign as Ireland closed in on a Grand Slam at Twickenham.
The Ulster man crossed in first-half stoppage time against England on Saturday, ensuring Ireland – chasing a fifth win out of five – took a commanding 21-5 lead into the break.
That try was a record seventh for Stockdale, who had scored six times in his previous three matches.
Stockdale scored braces against Italy, Wales and Scotland and had the chance to target a fourth double in a row in the second half against England.
