England wing Jonny May described England's 32-20 victory over Ireland as the best display he has been a part of.
May crossed inside two minutes for England as they scored four tries to seal a bonus-point win in Dublin.
It was also a first victory at the Aviva Stadium since 2013 as England opened their 2019 Guinness Six Nations in the perfect way.
"That’s the best England performance I’ve been involved in, I'm just pleased to play my role and pleased for the boys," said the 28-year-old.
On their blistering start, he added: "It’s part of how we prepare, to start fast we wanted to fly into them and ride through the rough patches and I think we executed that today."
Further tries from Elliot Daly and a brace from Henry Slade sealed victory and May urged his team mates to build on the performance.
"We need to keep working hard and getting better, but this group is maturing and we’re learning how to win tight matches," he said. "This is a tough place to come and it looks like we’re learning and improving.
"I think our defence was brilliant but what we saw there was a result of the scoreboard and Ireland having to force the game."
England fans' man of the match Slade also paid tribute to England's defence as they now move on to Sunday's clash against France at Twickenham Stadium.
"It's a great feeling to come over here and get a win," said Slade.
"We had a lot of defending to do but credit to the boys as we put in a big shift over the last couple of weeks in camp.
"We knew exactly how we wanted to play and we executed it perfectly. The boys from 1-23 put their bodies on the line and it was just really enjoyable to play in."
