KEVIN Morgan insists he will be ready for everything Ireland and outside half Ronan O'Gara in particular throw at him in Saturday's Grand Slam showdown at the Millennium Stadium.

If there is one predictability about any Irish team of any generation it is that they will kick, and O'Gara is one of the best whether it's high, diagonally, across field for an alert winger or at goal.

But Morgan is prepared and he shrugs off 'diddymen' claims about a small, slight Wales back three of himself, Rhys Williams and Shane Williams.

"O'Gara does put in a high ball, but Rhys and I have both played full back so we're used to it," said Morgan.

"They do kick the ball a lot in the air and across the floor," he added.

"But we've been watching the video and working out their game plan, so we're ready for it "People say we're small, but the Irish back three are not much bigger than us. I've played full back all my life, only moving to the wing with the Dragons this season, so it's natural to me.

"I've had no worries about going back to full back, I knew I could slot straight back in.

"It's obviously good to be playing such nice rugby, but I think the Welsh public would take any victory, though it does make it more gratifying when you play such good rugby."

Morgan warns against taking things for granted against Ireland, with such an air of expectancy after the dazzling first half against Scotland last Sunday.

"They are the reigning Triple Crown champions and Wales haven't beaten them at home since 1983 so they've got the bogy sign on us," he said.

"We've got to try to get rid of that if we are going to progress as a World Cup side because Ireland are in the top three or four sides in the world.

"And Brian O'Driscoll is a great player, their talisman, but they've got all-round qualities, a great pack as well which is where they will try to target us, but we have improved a lot there as well.

"Ireland could be smarting from losing to France last week and they could be despondent, but knowing the Irish they will want to put that to bed.

"They're still going for the Triple Crown and I can't see them anything less than 100 per cent."

And Morgan joins the club by damping down all talk of the Grand Slam. "We'll try not to think about it," he said.

"The pressure's on us to win the Grand Slam, but we've got to take it as any other game and just play as well as we have done.
