An emotional Jonathan Sexton and Andy Farrell spoke to the media in the aftermath of Ireland’s Rugby World Cup Quarter Final defeat.
The Head Coach spoke about his pride in the work done by the team and the end of an era for some of the players, “I’m immensely proud of absolutely everyone connected to Irish rugby to be fair. The staff have been immense over the last four years. The players, not just in this squad but the players we’ve used in the four year cycle have been a joy to work with. And not just that, the connection with the fans, it seems like it’s all one big family.
“A lot of our group are still learning. I’ve just said to the group in the changing room that the reason I know they are going to keep on learning is because of this guy sat beside me. The impact he has had on the rest of the team the last four years has been amazing.
