Ryan Jones says Ireland will be billed as 'favourites' in Saturday's RBS Six Nations decider
. Declan Kidney's men are just 80 minutes away from recording their first Grand Slam in 61 years after recording four wins on the bounce in this season's competition.
Jones, 27, said: "Ireland will come here with the favourites tag and with that, there is a pressure and burden to bear.
"But with the experience of the players they have got at both club and international level, they should be able to deal with it.
"I don't think that should be an issue for them. I'm sure the likes of the Munster boys will treat this game as just another game.
"We will both try to win the game but it's just about who gets it right on the day."
Wales are also in the hunt for the Triple Crown and can add back-to-back championships for the first time in 30 years should the defending champions win by 13 points.
But Jones has warned there will not be attractive rugby on show. He said: "The game won't be pretty because there's too much at stake. It will be extremely physical and the kicking game is going to be massive.
"You only have to look at Ronan O'Gara who controls the game for Munster week in, week out. We've got to make sure we win that area.
"He's a world-class number ten and we all know his strengths and weaknesses. It's up to us to see if we can exploit his defence. We haven't said it's a weakness but we will try to use it to our advantage.
"Defences are so strong today that there won't be many tries but if we play rugby in the right areas and win the territorial battle, we can win the match."
