What Andy Farrell said today

Speaking today Farrell said that Ireland needed to get better despite beating the All Blacks in Dublin in November.

He said, 

“This is a new competition, the Six Nations is like no other, the autumn has gone.

“Yes, there were some decent performances but we want to be better, we want to kick on, we want to see who is hungry enough to be in that frame of mind.

“We want to deliver a trophy every single time we enter a competition and this year is certainly no different.

“But ultimately we want to kick on as a group, we want to kick on with how we want to play the game, we want to push new boundaries for ourselves.

“There is a good foundation that’s been built and there is a real belief in how we’re trying to play the game.

“It came together in parts pretty well in the autumn and the aim is 100 per cent to kick on.”
