Wales take pride in meanest defence of Six Nations

Wales take pride in meanest defence of Six Nations”

Head coach Eddie Jones insists a second successive Grand Slam would bestow "greatness" upon England's players, something which Hartley expects his team-mates to relish seizing.

England go into the match having already been crowned Six Nations champions courtesy of a 61-21 trouncing of Scotland last weekend, and victory over Ireland would seal a second consecutive Grand Slam for the team.

Only Ireland can prevent England from becoming the sixth team in the history of the Championship to defend a Grand Slam when the rivals collide in Dublin. Jones, however, suspects Hansen of trying to lull his squad - and, potentially, the British & Irish Lions - into a false sense of security. That's the reality - we're not.

"We expect Ireland to be like that". It is a big occasion. I think that is the only way you can really play this game, to be honest with the team and your mates around you.

"Every year winning is hard". "There is failure on the one side or we can kick on, get better and hit those lofty heights that he [Jones] is talking about".

"Some guys carry a few scars from that and the scars always help because you don't want them again".

"Ireland are an extremely well-coached side, and they'll be grossly disappointed by their performance on Friday", he said.

I've just been reading all the predictions at the start of the tournament and a number of people tipped them to win the competition.

Vunipola believes they are closer than ever to achieving their target of overhauling New Zealand, whose record of 18 straight wins they matched on Saturday, at the top of the World Rugby rankings. The more exact preparation and knowledge of what exactly Ireland are likely to do, the more knowledge we have of what we've got to do. "It's the day after St Patrick's Day, it is going to be very, very emotional so we are going to have to turn up with the right mindset to try to negate everything Ireland are going to bring on the mental side of things". "Our training work has been very good and we will need to focus this week".
