All the Ireland matches have been highlighted for your pleasure and ease.
We start off this weekend in Croke Park for a fabulous start to our 6 Nations hopes and dreams. Paul O Connell was seen on the Late Late Show last Friday night and has been quoted as saying this year won't be easy. Not that we think last years Grand Slam win was easy Paul..Ireland will play France and England away this year, with home games against Italy, Wales and Scotland. O'Connell expects that schedule to make a repeat Grand Slam a very difficult proposition.He said:'It's a very tough year for us this year with England and France away. Grand Slam expectations have probably been dampened by that fixture list. But we have a great chance in the Championship and we'll give it a good run again.' We know you will Paul! The big question now is will Rory Best and Marcus Horan be ready for Italy on Saturday? Best has been out of action for almost a year with a neck injury and Horan has been out since early December with a minor heart issue. Can we expect them to play on Saturday? 'It's very important for Irish rugby that both Rory and Marcus are available for Declan Kidney and the upcoming Six Nations. They are not quite there yet and may not be considered for the Italy game next Saturday. But there are four mighty games after that and the more games they get, the better.' We'll cross our fingers for Saturday and all want to see them back on form for this years 6 Nations. Bring it on boys!
