21 years in Japan and the first sporting fixture between Japan and Ireland. Can't wait. Gutted I couldn't get a ticket. But on the upside as a result of the exposure finally Japanese people will realise I'm not from Iceland.

Here's to a good game, with shared beers and a win for the boys in green.

Low lie the fields of Athenry!!!!

Logic of benching Leitch is kind of sound but I still have the feeling they are saving him for Scotland. This isn't really the must win game.

What you on about?! Ireland smashed Scotland just the other day!
