Saturday may have represented a poor performance on the rugby field for Ireland but one Wicklow town youngster still managed to wow TV audiences tuned into coverage of the Six Nations clash with Scotland.

Vickers (8) was selected as one of the lucky child pundits forming the hotly contested Aldi Kids Rugby Panel. Dylan beat off competition from all over the country to join three other youngsters on the panel anchored by comedian Barry Murphy of 'Après Match' fame.

On Saturday, during half-time and after Ireland's defeat to the Scots, Dylan and his three associates put their punditry skills to the test, offering their views and match analysis.

Joining Dylan on the expert panel were Charlie Geelon of Shankill, Dublin, Donncha Flannery from Tramore, Waterford and Charlotte De Chellance from Kildare.

They will continue to analyse all of Ireland's remaining games in the Six Nations and can also be watched on the Aldi Ireland Facebook page.

Wicklow People Comments Facility

INM has taken the decision to remove the commenting facility on its online platform to minimise the legal risk to our business that arises from Ireland's draconian libel awards system.

We continue to look forward to receiving comments through direct email contact or via social media, some of which may still be featured on the website
