Huw Jones eyes Scotland Triple Crown to deny England world-record winning streak

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.

'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.

"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..."

It is also expected to be the penultimate season, with the final, Season 8, being even shorter still with six episodes. But we will not make you work so hard and in case you didn't know already, Game of Thrones season 7 is out July 16 .

"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.
