Six Nations 2018: Scotland 'must win away to prove O'Driscoll wrong' - Barclay
He says dreams of the Grand Slam had been shunted aside although the Irish could assure themselves of the Six Nations title - their third under Schmidt - with a week to spare if they secure a bonus-point win and England fail to match that against France in Paris.
The 109-cap front-rower conceded blaming their late arrival for last year's Scotland defeat was merely an excuse, and admitted that had proved a steep learning curve. Best said it was a costly lesson for the team to learn how to handle unexpected setbacks.
"You get into this environment and everything is put on perfectly; you get a police escort to the game so you don't expect traffic to be an issue", added Best.
"We must make sure we don't let any distractions catch us", Best said after the captain's run at Lansdowne Road on Friday. Past year we got caught cold.
After the bus was late, the warm-up also didn't go so well.
Johnny Sexton's conversion handed Ireland the 14-3 half-time lead, and the hosts wasted little time extending that margin after the break.
"There's so much still to play for and we know how hard it is going to be against England".
"Good sides like Scotland will capitalize".
"We are a rugby team and no rugby team has an aura of invincibility about them".
"We were delighted with the result against England and backing up our win against France with an improved performance", said the former Glasgow Warriors coach.
What could fall in Ireland's favour, is Scotland's poor away form.
A lot has changed in the last 20 years or so, but probably nothing more than Ireland's physicality.
But Barclay is confident the Scots can bring the same intensity they showed in beating England 25-13 last time out at Murrayfield. "The record speaks for itself.Ultimately the teams that do well in this competition have to do well away from home".
Scotland managed to get hands on the ball and looked threatening until Peter Horne threw a wayward pass between center partner Huw Jones and Stuart Hogg straight to Stockdale.
Here, Starsport take a look at what could happen this weekend. "Due to a few unforeseen circumstances it hasn't been as quickly through as we would like but hopefully we will have news on that - good, bad or indifferent - in the future, the very near future".
Lies spread faster on social media than truth does
MIT researchers looked at roughly 126,000 stories shared by around 3 million people on Twitter from 2006 to 2017. Not surprisingly, the number of people touched by false news far exceeded the number who read true stories.
