  • CJ Stander charges forwards against Wales in last year's Six Nations

Schmidt revealed Wales asked Six Nations chiefs for the roof to be closed due to poor weather forecasts, leaving the Ireland head coach mildly vexed but pledging to adapt either way.

"There's been a request go in [by Wales] to the Six Nations that it be closed" he said. I am sure the crowd will help Wales overcome that tiredness, but it's going to be a great game.

Ireland boss Schmidt fears closing the roof could make precious little difference in any case, recalling how he believes Wales over-watered the pitch back in 2017, when the hosts prevailed 22-9. There's a great deal of urgency about what we want to do and the point we want to prove. If you look at the stats, England have made a hell of a lot more tackles than us in this tournament. Is it gonna be closed and wet?

Jones said on Thursday that Wales were "starting to look a bit tired" after making "more tackles than anyone else in the tournament", and were facing an Ireland side "that seems to be peaking at the right time".

"So we will probably be happy enough if it's open anyway". And if the Six Nations decide it's going to be closed - it'll be closed and we'll play in those conditions. It was quite evident in the last game that their relationship was stronger than it has been for a while. If they decide that it's open, we'll play in those conditions.

"We've got to put him under pressure, but in saying that Ireland have world-class players all over the place and they can keep the ball for long phases".

"So that probably enters into our minds about which closed is it going to be?" Or is it gonna be closed and dry?

Gatland says Wales have a habit of delivering on the big occasion.

Jones also believes the Irish are "peaking" at the right time and says Scotland can expect "a bit of an explosion" from an England team still hoping to claim the title.

"My only concern is that if it is pouring down with rain, then we do have a responsibility to the game for a spectacle". Both teams have to agree to the roof being closed, so that means basically the away team decides what happens in our stadium. "We've got an opportunity to show we're the best team in the Six Nations and approaching the best team in the world, and we're not going to miss that opportunity". "It's our stadium and we should be able to do what we want with it".
