IT’S NOT QUITE the game fans would have hoped for before last Friday, but Ireland take on England at the Aviva on Saturday with a chance to bring their 18-match winning streak to an end. And, thanks to our friends at Guinness, we have two pairs of tickets to give away.

However, to be in with a chance of winning, you’ll need to take our three quizzes over the next 12 hours, with each one focusing on a different decade up to the present day.

Each time you score 10/10 in a quiz, you’ll be given a clue to the identity of an Irish player.

Once you identify the player, tweet his name, alongside the hashtag #fearofgod, to @The42_ie account up until 2pm on Friday 17 March.

Readers without a Twitter account can email competitions@the42.ie during the same time period. Both winners will be drawn at random from all correct entries.

Good luck!
