Fitzgerald insists his Ireland side haven't given up hope of winning the RBS 6 Nations title
Luke Fitzgerald insists Ireland's best form is around the corner ahead of their crucial RBS 6 Nations clash with Wales.
Declan Kidney’s side have limped past Italy and Scotland either side of a home defeat to reigning champions France.
But with Ireland still in the mix to land the Six Nations title Fitzgerald, who has stood in for the injured Rob Kearney at full-back throughout this year’s tournament, believes they can end on a high.
The trip to Cardiff is followed by the visit of current table-toppers England to Dublin and Fitzgerald, 23, said: “We’d obviously like to be three from three results so we’re behind where we wanted to be.
“But we’re on the cusp of where we want to be playing. We’ve talked about getting control of the penalty count and that's something we can definitely improve.
“In terms of attack, we look very, very dangerous. We’ve scored a lot of tries in the competition and we’ll continue to do that.
“There’s areas we’re looking to be a little more accurate, maybe holding on to the ball for longer, creating a little more pressure on teams like France did to us.
“We look very dangerous in attack and defensively, we just need to work on the small things in the two games to go and hopefully we can put ourselves in a good position going to the last weekend.”
