John Mitchell: Ireland will bore the s**t out of us

  • Acting RFU chief executive Nigel Melville will depart for Los Angeles on Sunday to attend talks about a potential World League

The Six Nations are upon us and there are all manner of questions just waiting to be answered such as: Can Ireland do the double Grand Slam?

Meanwhile, Mitchell says he is excited by the challenge awaiting England on Saturday, as they come up against the side he believes are now the best in the world, and he has urged the squad to embrace that test.

"To win the Grand Slam past year was massive, we knew how hard it was and what we had to do but I think we're just going again now". I know it is a short career, but enjoy it when you can and then move on to the next job and enjoy them all when you've retired.

"You want to be that starting hooker, you feel it is so close and you are not distant from it, which is probably what I felt a little bit in '09".

Indeed since its inaugural edition in 1987, the game's ultimate competition has grown in such stature that it seems to tower over all other events in the four years between each global summit.

"Everyone wants to beat you because you will more than likely go in as favourites". England played four games, scored 11 tries.

"We kind of let in two or three silly tries when we shouldn't have let in any".

"Whether it's England or "God save the Queen", I'm just going to go out and do my best when in an Ireland jersey, no matter what it takes".

'Jack took a knock to the head so what we've made a decision to do is to manage him, ' said Mitchell on Monday. "I know it has happened to us a couple of times - but I don't think you get distracted by it", he told the Sunday Telegraph. "We're both in Portugal so I'm going to the airport now and buying a pair of binoculars". On the Scottish side of the border Sean Lamont is brimming with optimism for his former side's ambitions with the full back saying you have to be on top of your game to win, but he thinks Scotland can finish top of the table.

"Ulster haven't pushed me to do anything and the IRFU haven't pushed me towards anything but I will make a decision sooner rather than later".

But before that decision day arrives, there is still unfinished business before he contemplates retiring to the farm: "The last two things would be to captain Ireland at a World Cup and then to win a quarter-final, they are the two big things that I have never done before".

"At the minute I'm just in a rare position where I can just see what happens as I go along". I'd obviously expect a game like that to be brutal, brutally physical.

"It's just about improving all aspects of our game".
