Assuming we have to play them in the Quarters, which is certainly not a foregone conclusion, we have a good shot at taking the ABs. A few weeks ago after the drubbing by England, Ireland looked like a good QF opponent.
Not so much after last two weekends, especially Saturday when the Irish scrum and their 3/4s asserted themselves. We are probably at parity in the pack......but the Irish have the better backline, particularly in the centres.
Not having played the Irish much and not having beaten them since 2016 it's all a bit opaque.
