Wales fly-half Gareth Anscombe said: “We set ourselves the goal of the Grand Slam at the start of the campaign after a successful autumn. We knew we were capable of getting to this point and we are desperate to finish it off seeing how much it means to people here. We will soak up the atmosphere but it is important we do not get caught up in the occasion or the emotional side of things. We have to remember we are there to do a job and be clinical. It is trying to get that balance right, enjoying the start of the week and tuning in come Friday.”
