Click on the links below to listen to audio interviews with scrum half Peter Stringer, hooker Rory Best and number 8 Denis Leamy, three of the four players who have been recalled to the Ireland starting line-up for Saturday’s meeting with Scotland.
Restored to the scrum half berth for the Scotland game, Ireland’s Peter Stringer talks about his battle to get back into the starting line-up. He said: “It was great to get three wins under our belt. Just being able to get off the bench and be part of it was special. It was a privilege to be out there playing with the lads that have done well.”
Having won his place back in the Ireland team to take on Scotland, hooker Rory Best talks about his delight at securing the number 2 jersey for the Murrayfield game, Ireland’s strength in depth, the quality of the Scottish pack and his in-form Ulster team-mate Simon Danielli.
Denis Leamy has been recalled to the Ireland team for Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations showdown with Scotland at Murrayfield. The Munster back rower said: “It’s great to be back. The last six or nine months have been pretty difficult with injuries. To be here is a bit of a bonus, to get a start is great and I’m really looking forward to it.”
