Warren Gatland snaps back at Eddie Jones ahead of Six Nations finale

"There is a bit of history (Gatland and Ireland) and if there is a grudge match in the Six Nations then this is it", Horgan told AFP.

The Wales team to face Ireland in the final round of the Guinness Six Nations on Saturday has been named.

If Wales slip up, Ireland will win the Six Nations with victory if Scotland beat England at Twickenham on Saturday. Or will Ireland finally put together a performance more like themselves in this championship?

"It will be the same approach we had with England", he said. 'If it was me, I'd be concentrating on playing Scotland.

Vietnam asks Malaysia to free girl accused of Kim Jong Nam's poisoning
Vietnamese ambassador to Malaysia, Le Quy Quynh, told AFP at the court: "I'm very disappointed that the court did not free Doan". The decision means that Doan Thi Huong of Vietnam will remain as the only suspect in the case still behind bars, CNN reported.

"That's what I want to see, and for us it's about trying to stay level-headed over the next couple of days and be concise in what we deliver to the players so we are not too emotional".

"For a number of us as coaches this is our last Six Nations game and the fact that it is in Cardiff is extra special".

Trump, Pelosi agree on one thing: No impeachment, but for different reasons
He declined to say when he plans to take action, saying, "The acid test is one that does not carry with it a specific date". President Donald Trump and Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (puh-LOH'-see) agree: He shouldn't be impeached.

This all adds more fuel to the fire - in a match where the Irish could deny the Welsh the Grand Slam and keep alive hopes of the title - of what is seen to be more of a grudge match for the Irish than the games with England despite the latter being the former colonial power. "They are definitely going in the right direction", said a deadpan Gatland, with tongue in cheek after the game.

World Rugby said Thursday the new annual tournament, which from 2022 would see the winners of the Six Nations playing the top team from an expanded, six-team southern hemisphere Rugby Championship in a final, could earn the sport 5 billion pound ($6.6 billion) in 12 years.

It would also leave them in great shape six months before their World Cup challenge in Japan.

"I know he was thinking potentially about when he was going to call time on the game, but he is feeling pretty good at the moment so Wales might get a few more years out of him".
