1/1 The Republic of Ireland’s players have to be aware of the importance of making sure they are in the right place at the right time at training when they travel to their opponents next World Rugby Champions Wales.
The Ireland squad are in London ahead of the Rugby World Cup, and the players are under pressure to put on a show for the players and the fans.
There are also some players who will be playing for the first time in front of the home fans, who will see them in their most familiar surroundings for the very first time.
The players will be hoping that the fans will be able to see them and react accordingly to their behaviour.
The focus will also be on the Irish defence, with the likes of Eoin Reddan, Joe Schmidt, Liam Williams and Joe Schmidt-Kensington all playing their part.
It’s also important that the Irish players do not get distracted by the media attention that will be the focus of most fans when they play their first game of the tournament, so they focus on their own game.
