Whatever happens at the weekend, Ireland are guaranteed their best ever JWC finish. The 2012 side were fifth overall and overcame England 27-12 in the play-offs that year, while twelve months ago England beat Ireland to a semi-final spot on scoring difference.
Ruddock's current crop will be hoping to avenge a 30-9 loss to England from this year's Six Nations, the final scoreline at Franklin's Gardens not giving a true reflection of how tight a contest it was for long spells.
Speaking to RTÉ earlier today, Ruddock said: "We're not getting carried away. It's a really good achievement to reach the semi-finals but we know there's a lot of work to be done yet.
"We're really thankful that people like Joe Schmidt helped us before we came away, Greg Feek and Les Kiss too - guys like that came down to our Under-20 sessions and did a bit of work with the guys.
"It's been a real team effort all the way through, 'team Ireland'. Jack O'Donoghue, I think, deserves a special mention as captain. He's led from the front and has rallied his troops superbly.
"Look, let's see what happens. If we can make a final then we might start talking about being a bit more of a special group. If we can win the World Cup then definitely they can talk about being a special group. But at the moment it's just another game and we've got to front up and continue to improve."
