Warren Gatland: 'One of our most disappointing performances'

Warren Gatland demands his Wales players to take a "long, hard look at themselves" after a heavy defeat to Ireland in the Six Nations.

Wales coach Warren Gatland has demanded that his players take a "long, hard look at themselves" following their 26-3 defeat against Ireland.

The visitors conceded 15 penalties at the Aviva Stadium in what was their first away defeat in the Six Nations since 2011.

"We weren't good enough today," Gatland told reporters. "We weren't at the races. We will take a long, hard look at oursleves.

"This was probably one of the most disappointing performances I've been involved with as Welsh coach.

"We won't be looking forward at whether we can win the Six Nations, we'll be making sure the performance improves against France."

Defeat leaves Wales fourth in the table after two games.
