Injured Irish Players Lead Tribute To Grand Slam Win

Injured Irish Players Lead Tribute To Grand Slam Win

The Irish rugby team achieved something that had never been done before today, they won the Grand Slam in Twickenham. Only Ireland's third Grand Slam of all time, none will have ever been sweeter than winning it in London on St. Patrick's Day.

The whole country has been rocking since the final whistle, and tributes have been paid from all quarters, including the president.

It's a sense of the unity and spirit of this team though that the tributes were being lead by those who are part of this team but couldn't be there because of injury. Sean O'Brien missed the entire tournament through injury, while Chris Farrell and Josh Van der Flier both played huge parts in the early stages before their Championships were cut short.

And something from a player who maybe should have been there...


Niamh Briggs, a Grand Slam winner herself, was also paying tribute to this team.

As were some former players.

Another Irish sportsman was also incredibly proud this afternoon.

What a day.
