The Aviva Stadium is renowned for its atmosphere, especially when the English are in town. With 51,700 spectators it is built on the site of the former Lansdowne Road stadium, which was demolished in 2007, and replacing it as home to its chief tenants: the Irish rugby union team and the Republic of Ireland football team.
Ireland v England: Last time these two teams met in Ireland England pulled off arguably the most impressive victory of the Eddie Jones era as they ran in four tries to inflict Ireland’s first Six Nations defeat in Dublin in six years. England had led 17-10 at half-time with tries from Jonny May and the impressive Elliot Daly separated by Cian Healy’s burrowing score from close in, and could have been further ahead, with their defence outstanding, their tactical kicking precise and the back three rock-solid under the high ball, they added two more opportunistic tries in the second period through the live wire Henry Slade. Ireland had seen off world champions New Zealand in an unbeaten autumn but their dream of consecutive Grand Slams came crashing down under a thunderous English assault.
It will be an opportunity for a new look Ireland under new head coach Andy Farrell to set down a marker to the rest of World Rugby. Teams will be approaching the mid way point in the 4 year World Cup cycle and Ireland after missing out once again on an opportunity to reach the semis will be desperate to right the wrongs of 2019.
