England prop Joe Marler has revealed that he is looking forward to Sunday's Six Nations clash against Ireland in Dublin.

The 22-year-old, who will win his seventh cap this weekend if selected, has also claimed that he is ready for the "challenge".

"It is the same with any front row or any scrum. Any front row or scrum can have a good day at the office, so it will be another challenge up front - as it always is each week," he told Sky Sports News.

"It is us boys who have to graft it and hopefully break them down and then see what opens up for the rest of them. We will look forward to it. They have some decent props in Mike Ross and Cian Healy so it should be another exciting game.

"We have quite a bit of footage on them from their club games and previous Ireland games so we will have a good look at them."

England opened their Six Nations campaign with a 38-18 win over Scotland.
