Six Nations Rugby
While all the indications are that Jamie Heaslip won’t be available for the start of the Six Nations as he nurses a badly bruised ankle, Declan Kidney has refused to rule the number eight out of contention for the time being at least.
Heaslip, who is understood to be in London today, was deemed to be unavailable for selection at a press conference held by members of Kidney’s backroom team in Limerick yesterday afternoon.
But, speaking at the Six Nations launch this morning, the Ireland coach revealed he has yet to give up the ghost on either Heaslip or Tommy Bowe. According to Kidney, both players were due to have further tests on their respective injuries and a final call on their involvement has yet to be made.
Heineken Cup Rugby Ireland
Brian O Driscoll Rugby Ireland
Birthday boy Brian O Driscoll took the honours in Paris last night as Leinster collected a bonus point after defeating Racing Metro. This magnificent win will now see Aviva fever as the Heineken Cup quarter final will most certainly be played at the world class stadium.
Aviva fever will see large crowds and a much needed cash injection for the capital city. O Driscoll and the final 36-11 score line brought a much needed lift to Irish spirits. O Driscol did not show any signs of aging on the pitch as he turned 32 years old yesterday, rather O Driscol played with the fitness and agility of a 20 year old. Brian had enough energy left to Tweet fans and say:
“An average day that got considerably better with the result tonight. Feed up now til Monday”.
It is now expected that the quarter final will be played at the Aviva and will net 910,000 Euro for the Club.
Aviva Fever will also see Hotels Dublin booked out quickly so for Best Rates Guaranteed
