Best said his team is focused on making a good start in the opening game away to Scotland on February 4.

"The big thing for us is that we keep moving forward, keep trying to build on what we did in November with a couple of good results and a couple of good performances," the Ulster hooker said.

"We know that's in the past and we've seen what the Scottish boys have done, not only in November but also with their clubs in Europe.

"For us, we know it's going to be a massive challenge to go to Murrayfield next week. It's a very, very tough place to go and perform and to go and win. That's really all we're concentrating on. We're trying to keep moving forward and keep improving."

So as both the fans and players gear up for next week, here's a look back at some of the tournament's greatest moments.

Ireland Rugby at its best...
