Ruining Ireland's Grand Slam bid won't be England's focus - Moody

Ruining Ireland's Grand Slam bid won't be England's focus - Moody

Maynooth - Joe Schmidt says he is "scared" at the thought he could become only the third coach to lead Ireland to a Grand Slam if they beat England in their final match in the Six Nations on Saturday. But that doesn't mean they won't be out to spoil the Irish party on St Patrick's day of all days.

"The guys owe it to themselves first and foremost, but also to our crowd and our general support. It would be a crushing way for us to finish a year of being unbeaten", he continued. "I felt all along going into this competition we could do well in the Six Nations", Gatland said.

England may have lost their past two matches and seen their hopes of a third successive Six Nations title dashed but they are unbeaten at Twickenham since Eddie Jones took the reins following the 2015 World Cup debacle and would love to do to the Irish what they did to them in Dublin previous year - deny England the Grand Slam.

Tributes were also paid to nine CRPF personnel, who were killed in a IED blast in Chhattisgarh, on March 13. Leader of the Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad said, "No Bill can just be finished in five minutes".


England scrum coach Neal Hatley insists he has been drilling a pack of "angry" forwards this week.

"I'm thankful for the collaboration between the WRU and Ospreys which will look after my best interests and enables me to play the best rugby possible", Jones said in a WRU statement on Friday. "There's obviously a certain bit of anger over what's happened across the last two weeks, which is what you'd expect".

"You learn from losing".

Russian Cargo Plane Spills 172 Gold Bars Onto Yakutsk Runway During Takeoff

"We've tried to rectify the breakdown by working hard in training". There have been big lessons for us to take and we have to make sure that we learn them quickly. We know it's an area we have to improve in. "It's about the way we carry the ball and our speed to the breakdown".

Sinckler is making his first start in 12 Tests and Hatley is confident he is ready for the promotion. "We've got no issue around that", Hatley said.

Jones said: "To be continuing my journey with the Ospreys is probably something I wouldn't have predicted at the start of my career, but having the opportunity to sign a new NDC at this point helps with the quality and quantity of the rugby that I play and hopefully will prolong my playing opportunities". "I think he's coped unbelievably well with the workload".
