Irish Rugby has arguably never been in a better position than it is right now. Since Joe Schmidt’s appointment in 2013, Ireland have picked up three Six Nation’s Championships with a Grand Slam in 2018.

With the World Cup taking place in Japan next year, expectations are at an all-time high in the country with an extremely deep squad at Schmidt’s disposal.
