Rory Best said It was important Ireland improved again as they preapred to head for Cardiff in two weeks time.

Back to back wins in the RBS Six Nations Championship sent Ireland top of the table, although defending champions England will return there after a win in Italy on Sunday.

Ireland got through a tricky test against the French in Dublin on Saturday, a try from Conor Murray and two penalties, a drop goal, and a conversion from Jonathan Sexton and a penalty from replacement outhalf Paddy Jackson gave Joe Schmidt’s side a 19-9 victory.

As it stands the Irish are a point ahead of Scotland and two ahead of unbeaten England ahead of Sunday’s game at Twickenham.

Ireland captain Best said: “We’ll take a bit of a break tonight, enjoy the victory and enjoy each other’s company.

“We’ll sit down and look at what we did well, and what we didn’t do well. I’m sure Joe will pull some stuff out that we thought was alright and he thought we should do better.

We’ll look at Wales and see what we have to improve.

“You have to get better every week in this championship because the other teams will. We have to improve again.

“It’ll be very tough but we’ve two weeks to prepare and we know the preparation is key for us.

“We’ll turn the page as quickly.”
