In all honesty, it was a nervous performance but I hope that we have now got rid of our nerves. There was huge pressure on us in Cardiff because of the fact that a win would set up the Grand Slam decider with England, and it did seem to affect the players slightly. Now that we're through to the England game, I don't think there's any reason for us to lack confidence.
We're in a fantastic situation, and the sort of situation which the supporters, players, coaches and sponsors would have wanted prior to the tournament. I actually believe we will benefit from our tough test in Cardiff - it showed the squad that they have the mental strength to come from behind with less than a minute to go and produce a victory from a game which they could have lost.
This Sunday is going to be an unbelievable afternoon. I don't think there's any doubt that it's an advantage to be playing at Lansdowne Road because England are almost unbeatable at Twickenham. I also think we have to be pretty confident that we can rise to the occasion. There is no longer any need for the players to try and hold back or save themselves - they can give everything knowing that the winner will take everything.
