Last Updated: 18/03/17 2:25pm
England's Under-20 team secured the Grand Slam with a tense 14-10 victory over their Ireland counterparts in Dublin.
The visitors netted all their points before the break, before holding off a spirited second-half fightback by the Irish at Donnybrook.
Forwards Jack Nay and Henry Walker were England's try-scorers while Max Malins kicked two conversions.
Nay went over on the back of a diving maul, while hooker Walker burst clear across the line to give the English a 14-3 advantage at the interval.
And another forward, second-rower Gavin Coombes, grabbed Ireland's sole try after coming on as a replacement.
However, England held on during the closing 10 minutes, forcing back a number of Irish attacks to seal the slam.
In other U20s matches, Scotland beat Italy 38-17 while France overcame Wales 40-20 - having led by only a single point at half-time (14-13).
