Ireland captain Rory Best says after their last friendly test match against Wales, he is ready to release a ferocious Irish side in their Rugby World Cup opener against Scotland.
The side have arrived in Japan.
Best says he saw a 2018 version of his team in their game against Wales.
On November 2018, Ireland beat New Zealand16-9 to record their first ever home win against the All Blacks.
Best signed off in Dublin in style helping steer Ireland to No1 in the world rankings with a 19-10 victory over Wales in his final Test match on home soil.
The 37-year-old will hang up his boots after the World Cup with Coach Joe Schmidt.
