Joe Schmidt's home burgled day after England victory

Joe Schmidt's home burgled day after England victory

Joe Schmidt’s home was broken into on Monday afternoon, 24 hours after Schmidt led Ireland to Six Nations victory against England in the Aviva Stadium.

The The Sun reports that Rathfarnham Gardaí are investigating a break-in at Schmidt’s home in the southside of Dublin.

The thieves are believed to have gone through the house and left with a sum of foreign money. Schmidt was not at home at the time.

It is not the first time the New Zealander has been burgled while living in Ireland. In 2012, his house was robbed while he was abroad at a rugby game and the thieves made off with the Heineken Cup medal he won with Leinster in 2011.

The medal was later recovered.
