It's probably the most appropriate point for a mid-term report in these mad-hatter times. So where stands Andy Farrell and Ireland as the Test game moves out of shot and European and interprovincial rugby takes centre stage?

There's much done in terms of transition post-Japan and Joe Schmidt, but so much more to do for Farrell and Ireland now. We are officially the best of the rest behind England and France in this part of the world and in truth I think that is a fair analysis at the end of this strange but, we all hope, 'once-off' Nations Cup campaign.
