After the endless hours of preparatory work done behind the scenes, Irish women Kathryn Dane was delighted when everything came together last weekend in Donnybrook at the opening game of the Six Nations against Scotland.
Pivac, whose first game in charge was an entertaining 43-33 victory over the Barbarians last November, was renowned when in charge of Welsh region Scarlets for encouraging free-flowing, attacking rugby.
"It (Saturday's game) is a little bit early for Liam".
"I don't think their egos are bruised. We have to be aware of all that".
"What is important for us is we have started the campaign really well result-wise and it is about building on that momentum".
It was a big win at home to start off and we nilled them which was a great positive for us as well.
"In the first 20 minutes of the second half we were flat if we are honest, but we finished the way we want to", Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones said at the post-match presentation. The try he got, we were seeing that at training with his footwork and acceleration.
Much like Ireland, Wales are under the charge of a new coach having waved goodbye to a New Zealander who drove them to Grand Slam glory. "Obviously, had a bit of upset during the week and had their backs against the walls". The team shows two changes from the side selected to start against Scotland weekend.
"It's 11-8 for them to win the Grand Slam, comfortably the most likely candidates for the unbeaten tournament with Ireland back at 9-1 and Wales 14-1 to repeat their 2019 success", added Aitkenhead.
Coach Andy Farrell's other change sees Robbie Henshaw replacing the injured Garry Ringrose at outside centre.
Back-row Doris is subject to return-to-play protocols after being forced off inside five minutes of his global debut during Saturday's win over Scotland.
"Yeah, I thought they looked great", he said.
"He was bleeding a lot".
Farrell has had to reshuffle his back row after losing Caelan Doris to injury. "We're ready for what is going to be a really, really tough game".
Biggar added: "It (Aviva Stadium) is a very hard place to play".
