It’s kicking off right now and is the most anticipated, talked about match of the six nations but Irish rugby player Tommy Bowe spoke on Friday about how the squad understand the intensity of this match but are not allowing their personal emotions overwhelm the preparations.
Bowe, who is the starting winger of the Irish squad talked about the pressure but is keen to look at the bigger picture and focusing on the game:
“We obviously know what a massive game it is, Ireland against England at home is always an enormous match.”
“For us, the last week, and even in Galway (the squad held their training camp in Galway) – everything has been focused towards this game,” he said.
“We’re not really getting carried away in the emotional side of things, looking at the bigger picture.”
Ireland have won their first two matches of the six nations and Bowe ended the conference with nothing but utmost confidence:
”We’re very excited as a team about it, we’re high on confidence,” he said. “I think we’ve played some decent rugby in the last couple of games and I think two top teams coming up against each other is going to be a massive challenge.
“As a player and as a squad I think we’re very excited and we’re looking forward to it.
“Hopefully it’ll be a good spectacle.”
We here at the Liberal send the best of luck to the men in green!!
