Jamie Heaslip’s Reaction To Ireland’s World Cup Draw Is Not Going Down Well In All Quarters

Ireland

Ireland were this morning drawn with Japan and Scotland in Pool A of the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Joe Schmidt’s side avoided Argentina in Band 3, as well as Wales, South Africa and France in Band 2.

All in all, it was as good a result as could have been hoped for from an Irish perspective, even though there could be a mammoth task ahead in a potential quarter-final.

Jamie Heaslip was one member of the Irish team that was delighted with the news.

Of course, this can understandably frustrate any Scotland fans, who were quick to point out the recent Six Nations meeting between the two sides.

In Heaslip’s defence, it was a private reaction, and the draw could have been far worse for the Irish.

However, they will face menacing tasks in the form of host nation Japan as well as an improving Scotland side who will be under the stewardship of Gregor Townsend.
