TeamOfUs start their campaign in Japan

Since earlier this morning, Irish time the Rugby World Cup in Japan is under way. The hosts beat Russia in the first match 30:10. The other two teams from group A will face off Sunday morning: Ireland versus Scotland.

Joe Schmidt’s team go into the tournament as no.1 according to world rankings, despite the heavy loss they suffered during the Guinness series against England.  

The Sunday game KO is 8.45am. Rugby themed breakfast options are available at several pub or restaurant locations from Ballsbridge to Sandymount.  

Let’s hope Ireland can put a winning stamp on the game on Sunday

If you happen to pass by Lansdowne Road, An Post have done their bit to literally dress up for the occasion.
