Wales take pride in meanest defence of Six Nations

Wales take pride in meanest defence of Six Nations

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're ready to go to another level against Ireland this week. "We have worked too hard to want to be failures". Every week you get that win and the team grows and hopefully we can use all of that to our advantage. That's the reality - we're not.

But in the age of professionalism, everything is about the next game - which is perfectly understandable when that game is a grand slam decider.

Sara Connor jailed in Bali, Turnbull's Victorian headache
David Taylor , a dreadlocked DJ who adopted a more sober appearance for the trial, said he accepted the judge's decision. The time Connor has already served will be subtracted from her four-year sentence, a judge said on Monday night.

Rob Howley's side will close their Six Nations account by taking on France in Paris on Saturday, with Edwards demanding more of the same without the ball against Les Bleus. "They have been averaging 30-odd points a game recently and I didn't think it was possible to keep a top-four-ranked team to single-digit points".

'I know there was a lot of talk about next weekend and I knew we were capable of getting ourselves to that place [to be still in the title hunt], so it's incredibly disappointing we are not there'.

Wales denied Ireland any tries in a defensive shut-out Edwards branded the best rearguard performance in his coaching tenure dating back to 2008. "It's the day after St Patrick's Day, it is going to be very, very emotional so we are going to have to turn up with the right mindset to try to negate everything Ireland are going to bring on the mental side of things". "We know Ireland are going to be fired up for it and we're hugely motivated to do it".

AR Unemployment Rate Declines to 3.8 Percent
Employment in other service, including repair-maintenance services and membership organizations, rose by 1,900. Ten major industry sectors posted job losses, the majority of which experienced typical seasonal fluctuations.

"We'll be disappointed if we didn't win the Grand Slam because we've got a once in a lifetime opportunity", he told Sky Sports.

Wasps utility back Elliot Daly, meanwhile, has been included in England's initial 31-man training squad for the Ireland clash despite being forced off after only 16 minutes on Saturday.

The Health of Great Barrier Reef Is Jeopardized by Bleaching
Coral is composed of thousands of small creatures called polyps that can only thrive in a very narrow range of temperatures. Without the algae in the corals, they can no longer get sufficient food source, so they essentially starve to death.
