The England team of 1995 was one of the finest teams to wear the famous Red Rose. The squad included the nucleus of the successful 1991 and 1992 Grand Slam teams with Rob Andrew, Jerry Guscott, Rory Underwood, Brian Moore, Jason Leonard, Tim Rodber and Dean Richards. But, they’d added fresh blood to the line-ups with the likes of Mike Catt, Tony Underwood, Kyran Bracken, Victor Ubogu, Martin Johnson and Ben Clarke. All led superbly by Will Carling.
A trip to Dublin to play Ireland in their first outing of the new campaign. Although the Irish led by Brendan Mullin and including Conor O’Shea and Keith Wood competed well. England took a half time lead of 12-3 and were never troubled in the second half. The finished winners by 20 points to 8. Will Carling, Ben Clarke and Tony Underwood all crossed for tries and Rob Andrew slotted a conversion and a drop goal. For Ireland Anthony Foley scored a lone try and Paul Burke kicked a penalty goal.
It was the unpredictable French at Twickenham Stadium in front of a sell-out crowd on the 4th February 1995. Once again as they’d done a few weeks earlier in Dublin – England totally controlled the game. Tony Underwood scored a brace of tries and Jerry Guscott added the third. Fly Half Rob Andrew had a good game with the boot adding two conversions and four penalties to extend England’s victory to 31 points to 10. The French scorers were replacement Sebastien Viars who scored a try. Thierry Lacroix playing in the Centres added a conversion and an additional penalty goal.
