Rewind a year and Wales - fresh from nearly reaching the World Cup final - took a dramatic first step towards a memorable third Grand Slam in eight years with a last-gasp win in Dublin. Ireland struggled to recover all year from stand-in kicker Leigh Halfpenny's penalty 13 seconds from time, and will be desperate to inflict revenge.
But since their blossoming in the spring of 2012, Wales have crumbled and, in a sense, both nations are hurting badly. Ireland may have ended their worse run since 1998 with an impressive year-ending win over Argentina, but they still walk a self-esteem tightrope.
