Ireland's Devin Toner is looking forward to facing England at Twickenham

British Lions lock Iain Henderson was picked to start in the only change by Ireland for their Grand Slam bid against England at Twickenham on Saturday (Sunday NZ Time) in Six Nations rugby.

Ireland are seeking to emulate the teams of 1948 and 2009 by achieving just their third Grand Slam success.

"The only thing I'm anxious about at the moment is the game".

Worst-case scenario is that England hit the ground running and they actually win with a bit to spare. "I have said on a couple of occasions that if he gets the opportunity he will do a good job", Gatland said.

"I'd probably be lying to myself if I said I saw this coming but I've prided myself on not giving up and making sure I always give myself a chance with the way I work and the way I trained".

Ireland spoiled England's grand slam bid at the same stage a year ago, ending a disappointing championship with a 13-9 win that began a record Irish run of 11 consecutive victories.

"For us, we were lucky a year ago, because it was three-all, we went up 10-3 and that first try that got scored was the only try of the match in the end".

"They will be looking forward to putting in a good performance".

England have lost three of their last five games in the competition, stretching back to the final game of last season, after defeats in Scotland and France over the last month.

After an outstanding record over his first two years in charge, Eddie Jones faces his first major test as England boss after successive defeats.

"You should be asking World Rugby, we went through World Rugby and asked for a southern hemisphere referee to try and help us with our breakdown and that's what they offered".

"We have seen in every game the physical contest has been quite enormous so we have to meet that physical challenge and then play smart tactically, ".
