AS rugby fever is about to sweep the nation, you'll find everything you need to know in this week's Irish Post Rugby World Cup special souvenir edition - complete with a team poster and free tournament wall chart.

With England hosting the tournament this month and next, we have a talented crop of our own in Joe Schmidt’s Ireland.

The competition will be on your terrestrial screens from September 18 to October 31, so get ready to embrace it and get behind our boys in green.

There’s no doubt this squad is the best Ireland have had since 2007’s underachievers, and there’s genuine belief that a mark can be left this time around.

You don’t have to have tickets to the games to become engrossed in the event either.


From New Zealand’s pre-game ritual the haka to the drama of the television match official overruling the referee on the pitch, there’s a lot to admire about rugby from the comfort of your own home.
