This is it

INSPIRATIONAL Irish captain Brian O'Driscoll has called on his team to produce their best or fly back home haunted by regrets.

O'Driscoll made the comments today in New Zealand as Ireland named an unchanged team. There is still a doubt over Rory Best's participation, although he did train with the squad today.

"You have to make sure that you produce on every occasion you pull on a jersey in this competition. Otherwise it will be someone else in the next round and you'll go home," he said.

"You don't win this weekend and you are on the plane home. We've got way too much respect for Wales to be looking beyond them and I can guarantee that 100 per cent of our focus is on them.

"This game is huge because of the stage we are at, it's knockout football and personally, it will be the last quarter-final I'll be in. So you treat it as proper cup football now, it's win or go home."
