Video: RTÉ Release Barnstorming Promo For Ireland Vs England

For many in Ireland, the count for the general election is the highlight of the day. For the rugby fans amongst us, it is different. Ireland travel to Twickenham to take on England in the Six Nations Championship, hoping to stop the Red Rose on their quest for the Grand Slam, as well as breathe fire into their own campaign.

Joe Schmidt’s side have failed to register a win this year, after a home draw with Wales and a narrow defeat to France in Paris.

However, if they are to plunder the ‘Old Enemy’ in their own back yard, this will soon be forgotten about.

Despite getting two wins on the board, England were not overly impressive in either tie, and had their work cut out for most of their trip to Rome before a late surge saw them over the line.

It is only a few hours to go in Twickenham, and if we weren’t excited enough, we certainly are now after RTÉ released this promo.

Strap in.
