Where We Were Today

Murray Kinsella was at Carton House to get the latest from the Ireland squad ahead of this weekend’s trip to Twickenham, Sean Farrell caught up with the U20 squad in Sandymount, Ryan Bailey was with members of the Ireland cricket team in Malahide, and head coach John Kavanagh treated us to a Snapchat tour of Straight Blast Gym.

On The Record

They have played quite well. With Eddie Jones in charge they seem to be a confident group. They are getting a bit of momentum up and they will be fully confident that they can go out and get a victory against us.”

The Fixture List

The last-16 stage of the Champions League continues with two more first-leg ties as Arsenal welcome Barcelona to the Emirates and Juventus play host to Bayern Munich in Turin — both with 7:45pm kick-off times.

Showbiz, baby!

Never change, Dan Carter.
