SCHMIDT TASKS IRELAND TO WRESTLE TITLE FROM ENGLAND

After making history following their thrilling win over Australia last weekend, Joe Schmidt has tasked his men to set their sights on ensuring that they wrestle the Six Nations title from current holders, England in 2017.

Since England’s World Cup win in 2003, Ireland has become the first side to defeat the “big three” of the Southern Hemisphere, thus handing Rory Best, Ireland’s captain a fairy tale ending to his 100th cap so far for his country.
