SOB: No revenge mission

Flanker Sean O'Brien finally made his first Test appearance for Ireland since November 2013 and after two ensuing shoulder reconstruction operations.

After the match, the 27-year-old Leinster star has warned Ireland not to view their pivotal clash with England in two weeks as a revenge mission.

Ireland's last defeat came at Twickenham in a 13-10 loss in last year's Six Nations, and O'Brien (right) admitted a bid to settle the scores would only end one way.

"It's not a case of revenge: if you go out looking for revenge, you get bit on the arse.

"It's a case of being composed, measured and making sure we have all our detail in place, and that we're singing off the same hymn-sheet.

"We certainly won't be building the England game up. They had a big win and we know all about them from last year and what they bring to the table."
