It's been something of a mixed 2021 Six Nations campaign for both these sides, but this final day clash in Dublin gives both teams a chance of potentially finishing second. Read on for your full guide to getting an Ireland vs England live stream, and watch Six Nations rugby online from anywhere.

With two wins and two defeats apiece, both teams earned a creditable victory last time out.

Ireland battled past Scotland at Murrayfield last weekend via a late Johnny Sexton penalty, while England put in their best performance of the tournament so far to claim a victory against then-unbeaten France.

Eddie Jones' men will be looking to make it four wins in a row over the Irish, having beaten the Boys In Green back-to-back in the last two editions of the Six Nations Championship and in last November's Autumn Nations Cup.

The home side will be up for revenge and will also be keen to give CJ Stander a send-off to remember in what will be his last Six Nation's appearance, following the number 8's shock retirement announcement earlier this week.
