Six Nations: Ireland v Scotland: Best hopes Ireland will learn from mistakes

Six Nations: Ireland v Scotland: Best hopes Ireland will learn from mistakes

While that will be the focus of the players, coaches, and supporters in the coming week, the performances so far do mean that Ireland have most likely already won the Six Nations title this year, meaning it'll be a fourth title in the last 10 years, and a fourth winner's medal for four members of the current squad - captain Rory Best, Cian Healy, Keith Earls, and Rob Kearney.

Joe Schmidt's men dominated the Scots on Saturday afternoon with a bonus point 28-8 victory.

"You can't afford to do that and we paid heavily for it".

Scotland matched their hosts for much of the first half, but Ulster flyer Stockdale went over twice, the second on the stroke of halftime as Ireland went in 14-3 ahead.

Ireland blamed the bus arriving at Murrayfield 15 minutes late on their 27-22 loss to Scotland past year - and captain Best insisted his side have learned the hard way how to clear unforeseen hurdles.

"If the game loves us then we might have won against France, but we didn't get bounce of ball, we didn't get the 50/50 decisions and we are in the losers' chair and it is not a very happy place".

"He gives me opinions of things we want to try, he's somebody to bounce ideas off, he's somebody who approaches me with ideas".

Best, along with Ulster team-mate Iain Henderson, has no contract in place for next season, having previously stated he wanted a deal that would likely take him through to the 2019 World Cup sorted before the Six Nations began.

"If one or two guys are maybe a little bit off it can flow through the team so that's the challenge this week", Te'o said. "I would be here for hours if I listed them all", he said.

Ireland have been crowned Six Nations champions with a match to spare after England's hopes of retaining the title ended with their 22-16 loss to France. But the back row added that if his team were to repeat that success they must "be better in Dublin than we were against England at BT Murrayfield".
