No team has ever won the title after drawing a game, but that is the task now awaiting Wales and Ireland following Sunday's 16-16 draw in Dublin.

Starting next Saturday when Scotland arrive in Cardiff, Wales must realistically win three homes games - France and Italy are also due at the Principality Stadium - and topple England at Twickenham to maintain hopes of finishing top.

We saw last year how close this tournament has been over the last few years. Unfortunately, there is no Grand Slam or Triple Crown to go for now, but we have to knuckle down and get four wins from four.

I saw a bit of the (Scotland versus England) game, and they (Scotland) looked good.

It was a physical game against England - both packs went at it - and they will be a challenge, especially with us having one day less recovery, so we will have to look after ourselves.

Wales wait on Dan Biggar's injury

Wales could know more in the next 24 hours or so about fly-half Dan Biggar's prospects of facing RBS 6 Nations opponents Scotland next Saturday.

Biggar went off just 22 minutes into Wales' 16-16 draw with reigning Six Nations champions Ireland in Dublin.

He was replaced by Rhys Priestland, whose goalkicking helped haul Wales back into the contest from 13-0 adrift.

Dan has a high ankle sprain, so we will know more on that in the next 24 to 48 hours.

Whether he has got to be scanned or not, I don't know. It's difficult to make assessments so soon after the game.

I thought Rhys Priestland played well when he came on, and we were happy with his performance.
