The Ireland management and players fulfilled their media obligations on team announcement day at the Killiney Castle Hotel. IrishRugby.ie caught up with Rob Kearney, Tommy Bowe and David Wallace to get their thoughts on Sunday’s RBS 6 Nations clash with Italy.
Ireland full-back Rob Kearney chats about trying to secure win number 2 in the RBS 6 Nations Championship against Italy, playing in an unchanged team, trying to keep momentum going, aspects of defence and attack and the importance of a good start in Rome.
IrishRugby.ie got the thoughts of Ireland winger Tommy Bowe on the approach the squad will adopt for Sunday’s RBS 6 Nations clash with Italy, what he expects from the Italians and the battle of the back-lines.
“It’s going to be difficult. They’re obviously a very physical team and playing at home, they usually take a couple of scalps every season or two. Their back row are world class and they have so much experience in the pack.” David Wallace discusses Ireland’s RBS 6 Nations showdown with Italy.
