Off the Ball: Past deeds should set rugby standard
The Off The Ball Roadshow came to Dublin's RDS last night with a rugby special featuring an all-star line-up including Brian O'Driscoll, Sean O'Brien, Luke Fitzgerald and Ciaran Fitzgerald.
Being honest, I have to admit that Ireland's start to the Six Nations didn't fill us with much excitement for this show in the run-up. How interested were people going to be in a two-hour rugby special that could turn into a post-mortem on Joe Schmidt and the Irish team?
The green shoots of the Italy performance last Saturday certainly helped, but in many ways it was irrelevant.
