Test Match: England v Ireland

England v Ireland

Dear old England travel to Croke Park to encounter an Irish with as much to win and as much to lose from this game.

Both teams are a tick off the pace behind Wales. Another loss would almost certainly place either of these teams out of the 6 Nations race for 2009.

Last Five Encounters
15.03.2008 England 33-10 at Twickenham (6 Nations)
14.02.2007 Ireland 43-13 in Dublin (6 Nations)
18.03.2006 Ireland 28-24 at Twickenham (6 Nations)
27.02.2005 Ireland 19-13 in Dublin (6 Nations)

GWC Rugby Rankings: World Table-England 5th, Ireland 8th
Europe Table-England 2nd, Ireland 4th

Prediction: Ireland to give out some more Croke Park medicine to England, Ireland by 9 points.
