SIX NATIONS SPOTLIGHT: Ireland legend Brian O’Driscoll revealed that  he is not ready to totally respect Scotland...not just yet anyway.

Scotland play Ireland in the Aviva Stadium in the fourth round of the Six Nations on March 10, but O’Driscoll told Off the Ball that he’s not ready to fully respect Scotland.

"You have to give respect to Scotland, because of the way they played against England last weekend, but the big question about Scotland is can they do it away from home.

"Which is something that has proved elusive to them the last number of years. Great performance against England, no massive shock. It was always going to be a tough game.

"But now they’ve got to get on the road and prove they can perform like that against a good Irish team in the Aviva and if they do beat Ireland then we’ll start properly respecting them, but until they do that they’ll be seen as a home team,"

O’Driscoll also said that Ireland will be thinking ‘Grand Slam’ and not Championship in camp.
