The sharp end of the season

So, there will be no all Ireland final in Bilbao after this weekend’s semi finals of the European Champions Cup with the two favourites through at the expense of Munster. As much as the ticketing honchos are probably disappointed given the hordes that would have descended on the port city -   for th...

The Linen Blazer Edit

It's never too early to start prepping for summer. As soon as the temperature gets into double figures, it has us all thinking about all things sunshine. With BBQ's, parties and summer weddings well on their way, you won't be too late to the party with this edit. 

THE SCRAMBLE FOR TOP SIX

Calculators at the ready for the final three rounds of what has been a hugely competitive season of Premiership rugby.  Rugby Directors will feel they are now planning for quarter finals and knock out rugby as the implications of winning and losing these last few games are huge.

On Friday night up ...

The Premiership - tighter than a boa constrictor…

With all the chat about tired and exhausted England players you might have expected to see a few more with their feet up for round 18 of the Aviva Premiership - but that was not to be.  From the fifteen England starters at Twickenham thirteen were on duty with two out with injuries.  You cannot blam...

ENGLAND CRISIS OR BUMP IN THE ROAD?

Irish eyes were certainly smiling on Saturday as Joe Schmidt’s men got their hands on the Holy Grail of every Six Nations.  And didn’t they deserve it!  I have been so impressed by how clinical and smart this team is and how they use their rugby nous to manage and control a game -  winning all the l...

SIX NATIONS CRANKS UP, THE MURRAYFIELD MAULING AND IRISH MARCH ON

SIX NATIONS CRANKS UP

THE MURRAYFIELD MAULING AND IRISH MARCH ON  

The Six Nations is a special tournament because of the intensity it throws up and the completely bonkers, passionate rivalry on display.  There is no-one you want to beat more than your neighbour and on Saturday up in Edinburgh tha...

Champs slip up and Falcons flying

Champs slip up and Falcons flying

It’s always a tricky time during the Six Nations with some teams proffering up more players to the national cause than others.  Here’s where the fixture list can also be friend or foe as this block of 4 games can sometimes fall in a way that you get your hardest ga...

Home teams take the spoils. Redemption for Scotland and heartbreak for Wales.

The 6 Nations is the gift that keeps on giving. Whilst most of us may have predicted the winners this weekend I am not too sure anyone would have foreseen just how well France played at Murrayfield, quite how poor Italy would be in Dublin and just how tight it would be at Twickenham.

The big game f...
