Watch: Bus Carrying Irish Rugby Team Gets Bonkers Italian Job Police Escort
By Gary Connaughton Updated

The 2019 Guinness Six Nations hopes of the Irish Rugby team were given a boost today, with Wales' win over England handing Joe Schmidt's side a slim chance of retaining their crown. To have any hope of doing so, they will need to produce a big win over Italy tomorrow.

The Italians only have one win over Ireland since joining the Six Nations in 2000, in 2013 defeating an depleted Irish team in what would prove to be Declan Kidney's final game in charge. A repeat result tomorrow seems unlikely, but you can never tell in this championship.

Judging by a video doing the rounds on social media tonight, things are certainly not being made easy for Ireland over in Rome. The video shows a bus, believed to be occupied by the Ireland rugby team, receiving one of the wildest police escorts you are likely to see.

When you see this video, all you can do is laugh at the effort of the police car.

This Instagram video actually comes from the story of Ireland player Dave Kilcoyne:

They definitely had a bit of urgency about them. Someone also seems to be waving a small pink mirror for some reason. Fair enough.

Seeing a police car of that size is strange enough, but when we see it zip in and out between the Rome traffic, you start to get the idea of where it might come in handy. The lads in the bus are definitely getting a kick out of their efforts, and I'm sure they appreciate the work that they are putting in. That doesn't make it any less mad though.
