Funny Geography

A country you think about so little…



A calendar year rather than a season but either way a good year for Irish rugby. The Six Nations (and the Grand Slam), the scalp of the World & Tri-Nation Champions and the Churchill Cup.

In real terms that means we finished last season with only one loss (New Zealand) and as the top ranked Northern Hemisphere team. We’re currently just below France (by thousands of a point) so if the Kiwis win we move back up to be the top ranked Northern Hemisphere side, and depending what happens in Cardiff we could finish the day as high as third.

Now by my reckoning there’s just one more thing to win this year.
