In a game that pitches professionals against amateurs, the home side are plotting a path towards ending England’s long-standing domination of the championship. 

Ruaidhri O'Connor - Irish Independent

"We’ve been best friends for the last 10 weeks and as soon as you put on a different colour jumper, all of that’s left at the door and the rivalry begins."

Eoin Harte - Pundit Arena

"I think both teams will play positive rugby, both are also the best defensively in Europe, conceding something around 1.4 tries per game."

John Fallon -

"A letter from the president is going to both Bill Beaumont and World Rugby in the next 10 days or so committed to full support of the event from the federal government."

NZ Herald

"For us to go to Leinster and only lose 21-13 gave us come back to SA, and say: ‘Listen here, that game we played was flippin’ hard, but we just didn’t finish our opportunities’"
