Ireland captain Johnny Sexton says there’s plenty to improve on ahead of next weekend’s final Six Nations game against England.
Andy Farrell’s side got their second win of the campaign yesterday with a 27-24 win over Scotland at Murrayfield.
Sexton sealed the win with a late penalty to move Ireland up to second in the table but he says there are a number of areas to work on for next Saturday.
“The forwards have been outstanding over the last four games, and they did a great job tonight,” said Sexton.
“I think what we did with that ball at times wasn’t good enough, some of the turnover balls, you want to make that your best form of possession and we turned the ball over straight away at times, which is frustrating because it’s something we have been working on really hard, so we’ll look at that, look at the video and like I said there’s plenty to get better at” he added.
James Ryan is the main injury concern for Ireland head coach Andy Farrell.
The Leinster second row came off for a head injury assessment in the final 10 minutes of the game.
Meanwhile, former Ireland international Alan Quinlan expects Andy Farrell to make changes for next Saturday’s Six Nations clash with England.
Quinlan says Farrell has a call to make on whether to start James Lowe on the wing.
