Martin Johnson's England needed to succeed in Ireland to claim a Grand Slam in 2011 but fluffed their lines and slumped to a 24-8 defeat. The players have experienced that the year before so I'm sure they will cope with that. I thought we were always going to play well against Scotland - and I think we'll play better this week.
