We have the best backs in the world, says Heaslip

We’ll come up with plans, says the Leinster man ahead of tomorrow’s clash at Lansdowne Road.

IRELAND HOST SCOTLAND in their penultimate Six Nations clash at the Aviva Stadium tomorrow (ko 5pm, we’ll liveblog from Lansdowne Rd throughout).

And Ireland No 8 Jamie Heaslip reckons Ireland, ‘ can come up with a game plan and ways of breaking down their ball and also securing a lot of clean ball for ourselves’.

“We can bring a lot to the breakdown and create a lot of momentum,” he says. “We have some of the best backs in the world and I believe we can cut them up.”
