Former Irish international Tony Ward is delighted that the IRFU have decided to appoint Joe Schmidt as Ireland's new Head Coach. The legendary fly-half believes Joe Schmidt can bring the dramatic success he has enjoyed at Leinster over the past three seasons to the international stage with Ireland. Schmidt replaces 2009 Grand Slam winning coach Declan Kidney whose contract was not renewed following a disappointing Six Nations campaign this year.
