Glasgow Warrior Alastair Kellock has vowed Scotland will do all they can to spoil Ireland's party at the last RSB 6 Nations game to be played at Croke Park.
Ireland head into the final game of their three-year stay at the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association aiming to land their fifth Triple Crown in the last seven years.
But lock Kellock says Scotland are eager to upset the odds and claim a victory that could spare them taking home the wooden spoon.
“We're not going over there to take part in any ceremonies, whether it's the Triple Crown or whether it's the last game at Croke Park,” the Glasgow captain said.
“We need to go over there and focus purely on ourselves and playing the best rugby that we can.
“In saying that, it's a fantastic place to play. We play in some of the best arenas in the world in the Six Nations and it's an opportunity to play in front of a huge crowd.
“It's a game that as a player you want to give absolutely everything to be involved in.”
While Ireland still have an outside chance of retaining their Six Nations crown, Scotland go into Saturday's match having failed to win any of their four games so far.
But the 6 ft 9in second row insists Andy Robinson’s men are on the brink of turning their encouraging performances into points.
“We've given absolutely everything we can. We need to find the extras, work on them, and get that cutting edge.
“When we find that cutting edge, I think it'll stay with us. It's not an easy thing to put into a team but, once they've got it, it's a difficult thing to take out a team.”
