Rugby Ireland will be better against Wales, promises Schmidt

Rugby I be crazy about items, because they are interesting!!

Joe Schmidt claims he has seen evidence that the “malaise” that affected Ireland last week is gone but admitted that the team that played against England had their minds “on the plane” to Japan.

The head coach was tasked with lifting the spirits of a squad, all fighting for World Cup selection, in the aftermath of a chastening record defeat to England last Saturday.

“I have seen it lift,” he told RTE Sport as he named the team to face Wales in Cardiff.

“We are in a better place to actually play rugby now rather than prepare to play rugby.

“I think there will be evidence of that but the confirmation of that doesn’t come through until the final whistle and we see how players have performed.”
