Campbell or Ward? Drico or Mullin? Which rugby greats will make our Irish XV? Find out in our fantastic magazine

Published 21/02/2013 | 13:52

It promises to be the biggest and most controversial debate in Irish rugby – and it all kicks off in the Irish Independent’s exclusive and unique First XV only in today's paper.

While the Irish Independent have already selected their best Irish Five/Six Nations team of the past 50 years, now you too can get involved by having your say on social media and by post. Pick up a copy of tomorrow's paper in your newsagent and you can also enjoy our interactive magazine online.

With your help, we will seek to answer once and for all the question that has gripped Irish rugby for over 30 years. Who was better - Campbell or Ward?

And the debate will rage on. Could it be possible to leave Brian O’Driscoll out?

How did the Triple Crown winners of the 1980s fare when matched against their successors from the 2000s? Will there be more players on our team from the amateur era or would professionalism hog the spotlight?

Our brilliant interactive iMagazine will allow you to watch specially constructed video and audio content, not to mention exclusively commissioned articles and photo galleries, celebrating some of the golden moments and glorious heroes of the last 50 years of Irish rugby.

You can watch the passionate debate among our experts as they agonise over the final selection – then you too can get involved via a wide variety of social media forum from your computer, smart phone or tablet.
