Conor Murray thinks Ireland need to reach "another level" to beat England

Ireland are now on 87.85 points - over six behind the world's number one team New Zealand, and 0.35 in front of England, who they face at Twickenham this weekend as they go in pursuit of only their third Grand Slam.

"We know how tough it is over there, we know all the things that'll be coming into this game".

"But I think this team has it in them, there is a depth to them both of quality and personality".

"Every game is different, every game we've learned something about ourselves; we've addressed it in the meeting room, we've ironed it out in training, and it's got better", he said. We played well in the last few games.

Woodward followed Jones and former captain Lawrence Dallaglio in criticising England's inability to maintain their discipline as they conceded 16 penalties to France, especially after making similar mistakes against Scotland. Yet, Stander has total faith in the structures employed by defence coach Andy Farrell, which ensured that the Scots only had a single five-pointer courtesy of winger Blair Kinghorn. He's a very passionate man. We've got to pick them up to play well against Ireland. Today we just wanted to go out there and show that we can defend how we want to. They were important scores, too, at a time when Scotland were well in the game.

"It will be last minute stuff, it will be all hands to the pump", he said.

The importance of the matchday 23 in the modern game can not be underestimated, with Stander acknowledging: "I think (the replacements) have got a job to do as they get on".

They like to have the ball and their game plan revolves around moving the opposition around the pitch, varying the point of attack to inevitably tire the opposition out which will increase the likelihood of scoring points, either through opposition indiscipline or poor defending. I think they always want to see what's going on and fit in, and get on from there.

"France are a side, that we all know, can either turn up of turn off and when they turn up they're extremely hard to play". "They did that job perfectly".

"I've only been under him, but he's one of the best I've worked with".

"People say: "you must want to do this, you must want to do that", it's not really about that, it's about winning in the shirt". He's a guy that asks you to pay attention to everything you do and make sure you're fully prepared for the game.
