O'Donnell: Ireland must improve
05 Mar 2015 17:05
Able deputy Tommy O’Donnell thinks Ireland must improve if they are to beat Wales next weekend in the RBS 6 Nations.

The Munster flanker stood in for Sean O’Brien for the Italy tie when the Carlow man was injured in the warm-up, and replaced the same player when he had to be withdrawn midway through the first half against England with suspected concussion.
-
The 27-year-old duly impressed in both games as well as scoring a try in the first.
-
Joe Schmidt’s men now head to Cardiff knowing victory would leave them just one win away from a Grand Slam.
-
Speaking to RTÉ Sport after the team trained in Belfast this morning, O’Donnell said: “We just need to keep getting better, we can’t hype ourselves up.
-
“We can’t fall into the hype and listen to what people are saying.
-
“We know we could have played better [against England]. We know we could have probably scored one or two more tries and we have to be critical of ourselves like that.
-
“We’ve already gone over our defence – yeah, we were good but we can be better.”
