Jones on 6N title: We haven't got anything to celebrate yet

Vern Cotter

As a result there will be a Grand Slam decider at Donnybrook on Friday as Ireland maintained their flawless record with a narrow victory over Wales, while France picked up a bonus-point win in Italy.

"We didn't celebrate. We haven't got anything to celebrate yet", he said. There's a perception that this year has been better and it probably has been, but you've still got to win and to win it you've got to stay undefeated.

Former England global Clive Woodward claimed that only a Grand Slam win would stop this season being a "failure", a notion Jones has rubbished.

"The performance against Scotland was pretty ruthless so it was a good progression for the team, but we've only equalled New Zealand's record". It will be a massive occasion and we know Ireland will want to spoil the party but we went to Paris to win the Grand Slam last season and then won in Australia in three Tests. That is something we want to do to teams - try and take them to a different level and hopefully we can do that. We're preparing for the World Cup and this is a World Cup final.

The Blue Devils will play Troy Friday in Greenville, South Carolina. In Brooklyn, however, Duke played the best basketball and beat UNC.

"We have got to be more aggressive, more emotional in the right way, more committed, as well as smart and skilful. A lot of our boys have been down there so we have some experience".

Martin Johnson's England needed to succeed in Ireland to claim a Grand Slam in 2011 but fluffed their lines and slumped to a 24-8 defeat.

'To bounce back from [losing to Wales] is hard but I know this group of players are incredibly good to work with, are incredibly resilient and they have demonstrated that before.

It was Vunipola's first global appearance of this Six Nations after he suffered a knee ligament injury back in November. Last year we were nervous and I expect us to be nervous this year.

"This is great for us".

"We are positive Elliot is going to be ok".

Ireland was knocked out of the title chase when it lost to Wales 22-9 on Friday in Cardiff, but Jones didn't think the Irish were any less unsafe.

"It's a big motivation for us in..."

South Korea deeply divided over impeachment
In 2004, South Korea's parliament impeached another president, Roh Moo-hyun, but the Constitutional Court later reinstated him. The court sided with lawmakers who impeached Park in December over allegations of corruption and influence-peddling.

"We'll be disappointed if we didn't win the Grand Slam because we've got a once in a lifetime opportunity", he told Sky Sports.
