Triple Crown & Shane Byrne

Friday, 22 February 2008

Ireland has won the Triple Crown (you have to beat England, Scotland and Wales) for the last three years and have come agonizingly close to winning the Six Nations outright in those three years. Last year we lost because France scored 4 more points than Ireland in the whole Tournament. Tomorrow's game against Scotland kicks off the Triple Crown.

Shane Byrne is the ex Ireland Hooker, a great player but generally referred to as the one with 'the mullet'. He is in studio today with the Triple Crown Trophy!

Please see competition section for details on how to win 4 tickets to see Ireland V Scotland in Croke Park tomorrow!
