A first cap is always special. We caught up with Fineen Wycherley and Nick Timoney after the match on Saturday to hear what it meant to them and their families.
Wycherley, dubbed part of the ‘West Cork mafia’ of players from Munster, was delighted to have his family at the Aviva Stadium to share the day.

Timoney was one of four Ulster players who made their debuts on Saturday. We spoke to him pitchside after the game.
