Irish fans won't like this Welsh journalist's comments about 'lump it in the air' Ireland
Ireland play Wales in two weeks time and already opinions are flying around.

IRELAND AND WALES have had an intense rivalry over the last few years after their various Six Nations clashes, their World Cup meeting and that time Warren Gatland dropped Brian O’Driscoll.

All that sets it up perfectly in two weeks time as Ireland visit Cardiff looking to complete the fourth leg of a Grand Slam. But Wales’ win in Paris yesterday keeps them in the championship hunt and one Welsh journalist expects the home side to deny Ireland at the Millennium Stadium.

Not only that but Andy Howell of Wales Online – who annoyed many Irish supporters by saying Gatland’s Lions team should have had more Welsh players in it – also thinks not many Irishmen would make it into a composite Ireland/Wales selection.




There are so many hot takes in there that I burnt my fingers just compiling them.

What do you all make of Howell’s comments?
