Exclusive match highlights, the biggest names, the best analysis: Your Rugby World Cup starts here
The World Cup is finally here and for rugby’s biggest tournament, we at Independent.ie will bring you the biggest names and best coverage over the next seven weeks.
Between now and October 31, we will bring you multimedia content that, quite simply, cannot be beaten.
From the biggest names and columnists to exclusive in-match highlights, video content and a detailed stats centre, we have it all.
Independent.ie is the only digital platform in Ireland where you can access tries and match action as they happen. Relive the moments when Ireland cross that white line or when tears fill the eyes of our heroes during Amhran na Bhfiann, just like the Bull Hayes against England in 2007.
Many more memories will be created in the coming weeks so when your fingers go into overdrive searching for the magical clips to get the heart racing again, remember that Independent.ie is the ONLY place you can view them.
We will also bring you a complete highlights package of each match minutes after the final whistle so you can digest the 80 minutes’ action over a pint or cup of tea.
Now here is a line-up that is as exciting as the team that will don the green jersey in England and Wales over the next 49 days: Isa Nacewa, Alan Quinlan, Neil Francis, George Hook, Tony Ward, Conor O’Shea, Brendan Fanning, Keith Wood, Brent Pope, Mick Galwey, Sinead Kissane, Billy Keane, Vincent Hogan, Paul Kimmage, Ruaidhri O’Connor and Cian Tracey.
Enjoy their expert opinion and analysis right here.
Our tech team have also been putting in the long hours ahead of the big kick off. If you are a rugby fan and you have our app, we will deliver push notifications straight to your phone when the big news breaks so you will be first with all the hot stories.
They have also built new, slick widgets for our desktop and mobile site that, we hope, will give our readers a better and more user friendly experience.
