Ireland rugby team wrecked England's Grand Slam dream and ended their world record run of victories with a dramatic 13-9 win at a rejoicing Aviva Stadium.

The home side overwhelmed the Six Nations champions with their intensity and physicality, just as they had in Slam deciders here in 2011 and 2001.

The victory ensured Ireland finished second in the table, ahead of France and Scotland on points difference.

In two other Six Nations matches, France beat Wales 20-18 while Scotland thumped Italy 29-nil.
