The Best Thing We Shared

A look inside the new state-of-the-art National Indoor Arena at the National Sports Campus.

On The Record

“The last three years I kind of had to put the pin in the wall and make a marker and I think I said in the first two years that a top-two finish would be something I would be really happy with.

“Last year, just on the back of losing so much experience and so much ability through injury, it was a bit of a rebuilding time for us. I think we built not too badly.

“I think it is going to be more competitive than ever [this year], but again it would be great if we could get a top-two finish.”

Joe Schmidt has always been keen to manage expectations and he has largely set realistic Six Nations targets for his team this year.
