Ross Moriarty is hoping to keep the home fans quiet when Wales take on Ireland at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday in round two of the Guinness Six Nations.

Wayne Pivac's team will arrive in Dublin hoping to claim a Welsh record ninth successive Six Nations victory if they beat Ireland.

But Ireland were the last team to defeat them in the tournament, winning 37-27 two years ago at a ground where Wales have not won in the Six Nations since 2012.

They got off to a winning start against Italy but Dragons back row Moriarty is under no illusion about the challenge Wales face against an Irish side with home advantage but, like the Welsh, also under a new head coach in the shape of Andy Farrell.

"We had a good start, but there are a lot of things that we've got to work on in quite a few areas of the game," he said.

"The result [against Italy] was good, but we can't let that get to us and we know that we've got to put a big, big performance in against Ireland.

"You know what it's like when you go to Ireland or Scotland. The fans are on you, one good thing happens for the team and their tails are up, the same as when people come to the Principality Stadium.

"It's the same sort of atmosphere. We know what we have got to do to keep the crowd quiet and keep their team quiet.

"Ireland have a big bag of tricks, and we did great against them last year in the Six Nations on a pretty poor day with the rain.

"Hopefully the weather is better this weekend and we can show what we can do with ball in hand.

"We are here to win the championship again and win the Grand Slam again.

"We aren't looking at past games because we have new coaches, some new philosophies and we are concentrating on the now rather than worrying about what has happened in the past."
