THERE WILL BE one key element missing when the Six Nations kicks off next week — the fans. 

A big part of what so many of us love about international rugby is being able to support your team in person, at home and abroad, when the tournament comes around each year.   

The global pandemic that led to the postponement of matches during the latter stages of the 2020 competition has forced organisers to schedule the upcoming games to be played behind closed doors. 

It’s an unfortunate reality and we can only hope that the situation improves enough for full crowds to return to stadia in time for 2022. 

Until then, The42 wants Ireland supporters to share their memories of the unique atmosphere, the unrivalled excitement and the sheer drama you have experienced at Six Nations matches in the past.

Over the coming weeks, we will be running ‘Hear The Roar’, a series of articles in partnership with our Six Nations coverage sponsor William Hill.

Do you have an unforgettable story about attending an Ireland Six Nations game? Did you lose your ticket but still manage to witness O’Gara’s drop-goal at the Millennium Stadium? Were you in the stands of the Stade de France for O’Driscoll’s hat-trick? Did you paint London green when Joe Schmidt’s men won the Grand Slam on St Patrick’s Day in 2018?
