“A Tough Day Today” – Ireland Congratulate Wales & Thank Fans Following Horrible Loss
Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
Ireland’s Six Nations ended in the worst possible way this afternoon with a simply disastrous performance against Wales in a 25-7 loss.
Warren Gatland’s men were impressive at times on the day, shutting Ireland down in defence. But there wasn’t much to shut down in the end as Joe Schmidt’s men rarely threatened.
A last minute try from Jordan Larmour spared some blushes for Ireland who probably deserved to finish scoreless. In truth they were beaten in pretty much every facet of the game.
But while Ireland enjoyed an incredible campaign last year – they’ve had some bad ones over the years and this is certainly one of them. After the game Irish Rugby tweeted to congratulate their opponents Wales, but also the fans who are with them “through the good days and the tough ones.”
Congratulations @WelshRugbyUnion on a fantastic performance and Grand Slam.
Thank you to all our supporters who are with us through the good days and the tough ones.
