IRISH fans travelling to the World Cup in Brazil could be in for a surprise in the stands when they spot a lineout of familiar sports faces – members of the Six Nations-winning Irish rugby team.

It won't exactly be a busman's holiday, but after a tough season of playing ball, the players chosen for the IRFU summer tour to Argentina are talking about making the trip to Brazil to see the football championship.

Speaking to 'Lineout' magazine (left), which is published tomorrow with the Irish Independent, Munster scrum-half Conor Murray said: "If we are in Argentina, all going well, the soccer World Cup is on in Rio, and I think Jamie Heaslip is trying to organise a few tickets to attend a game, which would be quite special."

Murray hopes to be chosen for the summer tour, which will be part of the IRFU's build-up campaign to the Rugby World Cup 2015 in England.

He is one of eight players from the victorious Six Nations team interviewed by 'Lineout', the men's sports and lifestyle magazine, published twice a year.

However, in contrast to other glossy magazines, this 40-page publication is also a digital iMag and you can view all the articles, along with 12 specially commissioned videos, on your phone, tablet or laptop.

'Lineout's' cover story, meanwhile, looks at the young guns coming through in Irish rugby – exciting talents like Jordi Murphy, Jack McGrath and Marty Moore.
