Schmidt versus the English

How has Joe Schmidt fared when taking on English clubs since becoming head coach with Leinster?

Pretty well, it turns out. The New Zealander never tasted defeat to an English team when he was in charge of the Irish province - last year's 13-10 loss in Twickenham is the only time he has gone down against English opposition.
