Leicester Tigers fly-half Toby Flood urging caution to his England team-mates
TOBY Flood is urging caution to his England team-mates about the challenge they face attempting to beat Ireland in Dublin on Sunday.
The Leicester Tigers fly-half, who appeared from the bench for the Red Rose in the opening Six Nations victory over Scotland last week, has acknowledged England's poor record against Declan Kidney's men.
Many see this as a potential Grand Slam decider, with Ireland having beaten reigning champions Wales in Cardiff and Italy shocking France. And Flood, who has been named as a replacement, is under no illusions as to how tough it will be.
"Historically we have not gone very well over there, the last result was a win just before the World Cup in 2011 but that doesn't really count for a huge amount," he said.

"They are an impressive side, the way they dismantled Wales last weekend and how they produced that result is impressive, especially at the Millennium Stadium.
"They have an incredibly strong, mobile game and the way they play allows them to cause damage in different areas.
"They have huge, huge positives from their game and it is something we have to be very wary of come the weekend."
