The Irish Rugby Team Had A Very Special Guest Speaker This Week

Yesterday's result might not have gone the way we wanted it to, but that doesn't mean we can't hope for a huge world cup performance over the next couple of months.

To give us every chance, the Irish management team brought in World and Olympic champion Usain Bolt to talk to them about preparation and performing on the biggest stage.

While Bolt will have no doubt dispensed a wealth of tips to our speedsters, we just hope that Joe Schmidt finds him an Irish Granny so he can actually start for us on the wing in the later stages of the tournament.

Some coup to get him speaking to our boys and am sure they learned a lot from it!

Great to see Bolt has recovered from his own rugby tackle style incident
