  • The Irish are riding high after their victory over Scotland clinched a Six Nations title and the world's No 2 ranking

Jones, who made the incendiary remarks at a leadership talk in Japan past year, has admitted he is "not the reservoir of wisdom" as he contemplated his most testing period yet, as England prepare for the finale against newly crowned champions Ireland, who are chasing a grand slam.

Following their Grand Slam triumph Ireland have replaced England as the number two side in the world.

Only two players remain from the 2009 Grand Slam side, skipper Rory Best and full-back Rob Kearney. Unless you fix them they catch up with you when you get to the big tournaments, such as the World Cup.

"Of course we are a good team".

"The guys owe it to themselves first and foremost, but also to our crowd and our general support".

"It would be massive for us [to finish second]".

Schmidt added: "There's more relief than anything else, there always is in these moments because you're willing it to happen so much, you're wanting players to go out and deliver what they are capable of".

"We followed the World Rugby protocol there and we try to get in as many different referees as we can so we are adapting".

In the video, Jones said: "We've played 23 Tests and have only lost one Test to the scummy Irish".

"The team have been regressing during the Championship in their performances".

Overshadowing the build-up to the 133rd meeting between rivals has been the emergence of offensive comments made by Jones in Japan past year.

England head coach Eddie Jones has apologised for comments which he made about Ireland last summer.

The England head coach also said after England's 24-15 defeat by Ireland that some of the squad that finished fifth in the NatWest Six Nations "may struggle to participate in the future".

"It's irrelevant really", said Hatley of what England expect from Gardner. "I felt all along going into this competition we could do well in the Six Nations", Gatland said. "Three million people. Three million".

"You learn from losing".

"Every setback, every disappointment, everything's just learning for us and it's part of our journey". "We've worked hard in training and for us there's been no change in his demeanour, he's getting on with his job".
