It was the fourth time in succession that the team finished as runners up in the competition.
They fell just short of Ireland after beating France 55-35 in the final game, with the Irish winning overall by a points difference of just five.
“We are playing very well at home and have built a lot of momentum now and if you look at where our World Cup games are, they are back here. We are building something together, both the team and the fans and we have got to keep on doing that. We need them and hopefully they will really get behind us if continue to play like that. I think the World Cup is going to be phenomenal.”
The World Cup takes place in England later in the year, and the home side will be hoping that their great form at Twickenham continues in to the tournament.
They didn’t lose at the ground for the whole of the Six Nations tournament.
