England beat Ireland 12-6 in a try-less Six Nations match at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Sunday, leaving England as the only unbeaten side in the tournament following their win over Scotland in last weekend's opener.

England won a Six Nations match in Dublin for the first time in ten years on Sunday when Owen Farrell kicked them to a 12-6 victory to become the only team capable of winning a Grand Slam after just two rounds of matches.

Ireland, who lost flyhalf Jonathan Sexton and wing Simon Zebo to injury in a first half in which the host's handling was simply abysmal, trailed 6-0 at the break thanks to the ever-reliable boot of flyhalf Farrell.

England, whose last championship victory in Ireland also coincided with their last Grand Slam win, were pegged back thanks to two penalties from replacement flyhalf Ronan O'Gara, but Farrell restored their six-point lead just after the hour.

Both flyhalves missed a further shot each at goal in the closing minutes as England, who next host a French team already virtually out of the championship following two opening losses, comfortably saw the victory out.
