RBS 6 Nations Champions 2014

End of an Era

Fittingly the last ever rugby match at the old Lansdowne Road will take place on the last day of the year between Leinster and Ulster - the descendants, if you will, of the founders of the IRFU - but from an international perspective, Ireland have played their last game at the old stadium.
