Ireland leapfrog England to second place in latest world rankings

Dylan Hartley

"I think that every good team goes through this period, it's actually an essential part of developing a great team", the Australian said.

"I've spoken to players, ex-players, retired players that played there and they've got it".

"They'll have a really resilient resolve to come back, bounce back and beat us".

One more defeat would equal the longest losing run in the Five or Six Nations (France - L17, 1911-1920).

It all started in the most dramatic of circumstances as a 45-metre drop goal from Johnny Sexton with the very last kick of the game - and after 41 phases - ensured Ireland got their Six Nations campaign off to a winning start in France. Stander feels the ruthless streak they have developed in attack has helped them to build this impressive consistency. "A lot of the things we've trained for, or thought would happen have happened", he said. That something was probably in the back of our mind.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the announcement signaled that Solomon would lead the bank after Blankfein's departure. Before his current role, he co-headed the investment banking division and served as the global head of the financing group.

"It's hard to imagine there are many people in the game who watch more rugby than Schmidt and his ability to produce brilliantly clever set-piece moves and power plays [which involve multiple pre-planned phases of attack] is unrivalled". Got lucky as well in a few games. We've got to fix it because that's the sort of rugby we're playing. 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. "They're giving 100 per cent and the breakdown has changed a lot in the last three or four weeks and we haven't adapted at all to that", Jones said. I expect him to be available but we will just have to wait and see. He's a very passionate man.

"I think it's a pretty big challenge", admitted the centre. We've just got to focus now on Ireland.

Joe Schmidt's Ireland benefited from a 2.52 ratings points swing as they climbed into second place courtesy of their 11th Test victory in a row.

"I think I just watched it with my family at the time so it would be wonderful to be part of something like that but there's no point getting too distracted". They're going to be coming home.

"On the other side, there's always something with every team, you never play the flawless game, maybe you're trying to do that so there's always fixes - definitely with this group, with the experience, the new guys coming in, the younger generation that have added so much, there's something there, there's another level that we're striving towards". "They did that job perfectly". One of the casualties of the fall-out from France's humiliating 2015 World Cup quarter-final thrashing by New Zealand, Bastareaud had been deemed surplus to requirements. He's a guy that asks you to pay attention to everything you do and make sure you're fully prepared for the game.
