Ireland ended a 61-year wait for Grand Slam glory with an epic win over Wales at the Millenium Stadium back in 2009.
Outhalf Ronan O’Gara’s drop-goal won the game for Ireland after Wales led 15-14, but it was captain Brian O’Driscoll who fittingly set the ball rolling with an excellent try. O’Driscoll touched down for Ireland’s second-half opener, before wing Tommy Bowe added a second try just two minutes later.
It’s a day that will live long in the memory for Irish Rugby. But can you name the six players that were in the squad for the Welsh game that are still playing professional rugby?
You have 5 minutes. Can you get all six?
