The Grand Slam may no longer be available but Ireland head coach Declan Kidney believes the RBS 6 Nations crown is still a realistic aim after seeing his side lose 21-23 against Wales at the Aviva Stadium.
Kidney said: "Three teams have had their Grand Slams ended this weekend, and three teams are still in. That is the nature of it, but there is a championship still to be won.
"We will take a good look at what we can solve ourselves. We gave Wales some easy field position, and they made inroads.
