TRIUMPH. DISASTER. AT this time of year — before a ball has been kicked or ruck has been formed — we can treat those two imposters just the same.

But no matter how full your glass is at this moment, you’re probably starting to form an opinion as to how well — or not — Ireland will do in this year’s Six Nations campaign.

Joe Schmidt’s men are, of course, aiming to become the first team to win back-to-back-to-back Five/Six Nations and just the third Irish side to win the Grand Slam.

Or are you worried Ireland are set to suffer a World Cup hangover having to settle for mid-table mediocrity or, worse still, could they even pick up the wooden spoon?
