“It’s not something that I take lightly...I’ve got to try and be myself and just learn from past experiences of doing it.”

Gerry Thornley - Irish Times

There is a lot of exciting potential in the starting XV as captain David McCann leads a side that includes five players who featured last year.

Cian Tracey - Irish Independent

"...he’s a quality player and one that we are going to have to be fully switched on for because he has a full bag of tricks that he can pull out."

Nick Purewal - The Scotsman

...the move...represents World Rugby’s ambition to bridge the gap between developing and elite sides in the international game.

"Obviously we have to go out and do it still, but yeah I’d disagree because I can’t see what it’s based on."
