"We've got to go into the game knowing our roles inside out, getting the physicality right", he told ITV. "We played some outstanding rugby today, just disappointed we didn't have one more two more three more tries on the scoreboard which would have made it a very interesting game in the last 10 minutes". Jonny likes to attack on any front foot ball, those little wraparound plays.
There was a stramash last season about Glasgow players targeting Murray's standing leg when the Irish scrummy was in Munster colours but if he is looking for protection he'll be disappointed. "They are a fantastic side and we knew when we got chances we had to take them especially against a defence as good as theirs". We feel that we're in the hunt, and we understand that we need to win if we want to win the Championship.
"The way England attack, and Ireland as well, is geared to getting into our half through their kicking game so if you can take their strength and turn it into nearly a weakness it's a huge tipping point in the game".
Scotland could argue that they deserved better than a 20-point defeat but handling errors let them down at crucial times as three scores were left on the Dublin turf.
'It is brilliant to play alongside him.
'Ireland will run a couple of times but with the pair of them in their team, if their path shuts up they will look to kick and get into our half that way. He has a lot of tricks up his sleeve and he is a very skilful player.
"But look, we're going to go into this weekend with the same approach that we did against England".
Ever since the fixture list for the 2018 edition of the Six Nations was first announced back in January, many seemed to take for granted that a second successive final day showdown between England and Ireland - this time at Twickenham - would stand as a potentially mouth-watering Grand Slam decider. "We play Ireland next year in the Six Nations and we will play them in 18 months at the World Cup and we need to make sure we are a better team when we play them". But, he added, they have been better for it. But whether Laidlaw would resort to his shirt-ripping antics of before, well, perhaps not.
Having bounced back with an assured display against England, Russell will have brushed away any doubts and will head to Dublin ready to impress alongside the ever-steady Greig Laidlaw.
'Yes, I have recovered from that night!' said a smiling Laidlaw.
Jones said that "some teams are outplaying us in certain areas".
"It's an important game for us to see how we respond from the loss against Scotland".
The captain's armband has been given to centre Owen Farrell, who was England's most aggressive player against the triumphant Scots.
With Ireland likely, on paper, to enjoy superiority in the set piece and forwards battle, the half-backs will be tasked with controlling the bruising chess match and keeping their opponents guessing, all the while keeping the scoreboard ticking over.
