These photos, as compiled by Irish photo agency Sportsfile, document the past 33 years of clashes between the Six Nations’ greatest rivalry.

They show the controversial 2003 clash at Landsdowne Park where the England team refused to move from the traditional left side of the pitch while singing the anthems, leaving the Ireland team standing further up the pitch.

It also shows the progression of the now retired Captain Fantastic Brian O’Driscoll, as he beams ecstatically at the Triple Crown in 2006.
