Explainer: Can England win the Six Nations if Wales beat Ireland?

Johnny Sexton 'I don't know if Wales feel like they are invincible'

The New Zealander, who is set to take charge of his final Guinness Six Nations match at the helm of Ireland, has some interesting selection decisions, including at full-back - where Jordan Larmour will challenge Rob Kearney for the starting jersey after impressing against France.

"The others were wins but this was a performance", Conan stated in relation to Ireland's earlier defeats of Scotland and Italy.

"There was so much good in it".

Schmidt will be mindful too his side will not be able to afford the luxury of letting slip three golden try opportunities which they did against the French.

'My dad rang me after the (Scotland) game when we were having a drink in the hotel and we were both thinking the same thing, ' said Anscombe.

If Wales beat Ireland at the Principality Stadium, Gatland will have masterminded a Five or Six Nations record third clean sweep by one coach.

The disappointment of Ireland's World Cup quarter-final defeat by Argentina carried over into the 2016 Six Nations as Schmidt began the process of expanding his squad but the side showed some signs of what was to come with this gritty victory in Dublin to deny England a second consecutive Grand Slam.

Wales are on course for a Six Nations Grand Slam - won by Ireland a year ago - and will secure that superb triumph by beating Sexton's men this weekend.

Trump 2020 budget projects big deficits despite spending cuts
Maryland Democrat Steny Hoyer, a House rep since 1981, said the budget reflected the administration's "separation from reality". Lawmakers from both parties oppose the emergency declaration, but Congress appears to lack a veto-proof margin to block Trump.

"He has got to go down as Wales" best coach, ' said the playmaker. He has changed the psychology of the Welsh team and public.

Even more so than the comprehensive win against Scotland the previous week, this victory over defending champions Wales confirmed that Ireland would be a force to be reckoned with under Schmidt. Both have been mentioned as possible coaches of the British & Irish Lions in South Africa in 2021, while Gatland has, somewhat mischievously, played along with suggestions that he might succeed Eddie Jones at England.

"Plus, Joe said he didn't want me to keep going without him".

"It's going to be a humdinger of a game because Ireland have not been at their best", said the 2003 World Cup victor.

"We have to extend that high performance period right through the game".

"He has an exceptional ability to get the boys up for what we are doing".

Here we take a look back at some of Ireland's stand-out Six Nations matches of the Schmidt era. "I don't think Wales have played well this year but what they are is big, physical and fit and it will be a tough one." . I am sure he will know the buttons to push this week.

"We know that's something we'll have to manage". But, our expectation is that he will be training fully on Tuesday and, if he is, he is another guy who will be back in the mix for this weekend'.
