Ireland had high hopes going into the 2007 Rugby World Cup, but the tournament ultimately ended in disappointment for the men in green.
Eddie O’Sullivan’s men always had their work cut out for them after being placed in the pool of death with hosts France and eventual bronze medallists Argentina, but a Triple Crown in that year’s Six Nations meant Ireland were expected to advance to the quarter-finals.
Losses to France and Argentina meant Ireland went home early, as the team that were thought to be the country’s golden generation failed to perform on the biggest stage.
