Welsh prop Adam Jones has admitted he's looking forward to taking on his opposite number Cian Healy when Wales take on Ireland tomorrow.
Their scrum battle looks to be one of a number of key individual encounters in what will be a fascinating encounter at the Aviva Stadium:
"I was sad to see him get injured (during the Lions tour). We've seen how good he is. He's come back stronger and he's probably one of the best, if not the best, loosehead in the world at the moment. I will look forward to playing against him." - Adam Jones
Welsh hopes of achieving an unprecedented Six Nations title hat-trick took a beating in Dublin, as Ireland romped to a 26-3 victory.
Warren Gatland's Wales team will take on an Ireland side, who prop Adam Jones says will be "revved up" come kick-off.
With a squad that has now seen success in the Six Nations and Lions tour, Howley believes there is no game they can't deliver in.
