It seems unlikely given he was speaking after his side's 61-21 success over Scotland, a record-equalling 18th consecutive Test win that saw them win the Six Nations again, but his famous mind-games are clearly underway already. "There is failure on the one side or we can kick on, get better and hit those lofty heights that he [Jones] is talking about".
After the November internationals, Irish fans were in buoyant mood, with many tipping Ireland as pre-tournament favourites and potential Grand Slam contenders.

"We know Ireland are going to be fired up for it and we're hugely motivated to do it".
