Six Nations

Warburton: Draw not good for anyone

Wales captain Sam Warburton says a draw is not good for Wales or Ireland following their Six Nations stalemate.

Warren Gatland's men fought back from 13-0 down after 27 minutes to draw 16-16 with the defending champions in Dublin on Sunday.

The result represented the first draw between the sides since 1991 and maintained their equal head-to-head record, having won 28 meetings a piece and tied five.

"I was disappointed with first 20 minutes, we talked before the game about having to start well because Ireland always come flying out of the blocks," Warburton told ITV. 

"We're pleased that we weathered the storm and managed to fight back.

"A draw is not a good result for anyone. It takes away the possibility of a Grand Slam or Triple Crown and it means we have got to take another big scalp down the line to win the championship.

"But we have got three home games now so that's the positive."

Wales face Scotland in Cardiff on Saturday.
