Gardai were called to the scene of a collision on Landsdowne road after a chariot carrying a visiting English rugby team collided with an Irish wall. Thankfully there were no serious injuries apart from the pride and embarrassment of the visitors. Another tactical masterclass from Irish head coach Joe Schmidt whose biggest task now will be to keep supporters from running away with themselves after that 19-9 Six Nations victory. It was one of those wins that makes us love twitter and social media for liking and sharing covers like this.

Robbie Henshaw and Jonathan Sexton vying for the title of heros of the weekend. From the accuracy of Sexton's kicking to the high fielding of the Athlone starlet it was a match to savour.
When Ireland centre Henshaw brilliantly collected a high kick ahead in goal to touch down for a super try and Sexton made it 19-3 it was hard to believe the scoreboard.
Patrickswell native Conor Murray and the Westmeath man must have been studying plays from the bould ROG and Shane Horgan in the past as the try rekindled memories of this great touchdown at Croke Park in 2007.
It's looking like a great rugby year!
