Rugby World Cup 2019
Eamonn Sweeney: 'Ireland's year from hell might be the most dramatic decline in Irish sporting history'
What else did you expect? Ireland's terrible year which led to a terrible Rugby World Cup campaign culminated in a terrible defeat. So 2019 has done for Irish rugby what 2008 did for the Irish economy. A team which lost to Wales by 18 points and England by 42 finished 32 adrift of the All Blacks. Quelle surprise.
