#O2BehindTheGreen: Tailgating In The USA And About Schmidt

Our exclusive tour diary #O2BehindTheGreen takes you to the heart of the action from the USA v Ireland game and we talk to Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt in Toronto.

Ireland earned a hard-fought 15-12 win over the USA last Saturday and our behind the scenes camera gives you a flavour of the day.

First up was the traditional USA tailgating party in the parking lot at the stadium with music, food and plenty of fans partying. Then we take you inside the stadium for a different view of the game. Check out the action on youtube.com/O2Rugby.

After a weather-delayed flight to Toronto, the Ireland squad are settling in well and incoming head coach Joe Schmidt took time to talk to us about his ‘observational’ role on this tour and how it is a great chance to get to know the players and backroom staff alike.

Watch Joe’s interview on youtube.com/O2Rugby.
