Off the Ball
Off the Ball: Irish depth has fans dreaming
The night before we had our Off the Ball roadshow at the '3' Arena during the Rugby World Cup, we got a bunch of tweets to @offtheball wondering where everyone was and why it was so quiet. Some listeners had shown up to the party a night early. There's a bad metaphor there for just how brilliantly the team are currently playing a year on from the big dance. Timing is everything, right? Is it trite to wonder why we couldn't have been this good 12 months ago?
