Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones hailed Ireland as the best team in the northern hemisphere in Cardiff on Friday, ahead of his side's clash with the men in green.
Jones, who will be leading his side out on Saturday with hopes of winning the Six Nations Grand Slam, said the Irish had 'the most consistent team, we're well aware of the individuals but also the calibre and previous results.'
Ireland skipper Rory Best, who will be play in his final ever Six Nations game, said there is no place, apart from his own ground, he'd rather battle it out than the Millennium Stadium.
"This place whenever it's full, which it will be tomorrow and with something on the line which there will be tomorrow, it's just an incredibly special place to play," he said.
Wales will host Ireland in their last Six Nations game at 15:45 GMT on Saturday.
