Tadhg Furlong knows what it is like to beat the All Blacks, the Wallabies and the Springboks. Now he is aiming to add England to that impressive list.
The Leinster prop is gearing up for his first Six Nations clash against the 'auld enemy', although he did play a 10 minute cameo on the wrong side of the scrum in a 2015 World Cup warm up match at Twickenham.
The Wexford man's first experience of the Millennium Stadium didn't go to plan last week.
He missed a crucial chance to score during Ireland's 22-9 defeat to Wales, dropping the ball just three metres from the Welsh try line.
Furlong admits he should have done better in what was a frustrating encounter.
He is confident, though, that home advantage will help Ireland return to winning ways and overcome the challenge of this Grand Slam and record chasing England team.
