Ireland U20s Bid For Grand Slam Glory Tonight

CJ Stander charges forwards against Wales in last year's Six Nations

Warren Gatland admits "the prize is massive" when Wales go for Six Nations title and Grand Slam glory against Ireland in Cardiff on Saturday.

The Ireland backline includes in-form winger Keith Earls who will win his 77th cap in this game, while scrum-half Conor Murray again partners Jonathan Sexton at half-back.

Jones, a coaching consultant to eventual champions South Africa, had been expecting to face Wales in the quarter-finals. "I see a team that's looking exhausted and I see an Ireland team that's peaking", said Jones.

"Since then he's resurrected Welsh rugby and it's so important for world rugby to have a strong Welsh team".

But change of some kind looks to be coming, with World Rugby outlining its plan for a new, unified, Nations Championship at a meeting of the global governing body this week.

"I pride myself on the record I've had in big matches when it has really mattered", added Gatland, ahead of his final Six Nations game as Wales head coach before he steps down later this year. It's our last game of the Six Nations, our last game in front of our home crowd and we want to put on a good performance. But things are a little more complicated in terms of a successive Championship.

"I'm just saying what I see and I see a team that's looking exhausted".

Vietnamese woman loses bid for release
The Indonesian embassy reportedly said that Siti Aisyah's release on Monday was the result of Jakarta's lobbying efforts. Four North Koreans who fled Malaysia shortly after the murder were identified by police as suspects.

"He has been very important to us, he is a player who does not pick up many injuries and he has been a constant".

"In the early years he was a bit hot-headed and temperamental, and he was the one starting the fights in training and stuff, and that is what a competitor he is".

But when asked if he had any figures to back up that assertion, the 59-year-old Jones replied: "No figures for it, just fading eyesight".

"What the hell is Eddie doing talking about our game?"

Although England ran in 57 points last weekend I don't feel Jones will have learnt much about the Te'o-Manu Tuilagi partnership because Italy weren't much of a test.

"If you look at the stats, England have made a hell of a lot more tackles than us in this tournament".
