Ireland's Six Nations campaign got off to a bad start in the Aviva today with a 32-20 loss to visitors, England.
Viewers on this side of the pond weren't pleased by how well the England team was performing throughout the game.
Hi Ireland, I am in England watching this in a pub so if you could cop on and start winning in the next half so that English people would stop singing Sweet Chariot right in my face that would be fab xo #IREvENG— Nicola Bardon (@NicolaBardon) February 2, 2019
I blame the Paddy Power ads.— ⭐ amy o'connor ⭐ (@amyohconnor) February 2, 2019
But we can all agree it was a nail-biter of a game.
Thankfully the Ireland fans found some comic relief.
Of course, there were lots of jokes about Brexit thrown in for good measure.
If you were hoping to escape #Brexit and immerse yourself in the #SixNationsRugby just for a day don’t look at the ads up around Dublin. #IREvENG pic.twitter.com/BCLxbFrYT1— Andrea Catherwood (@acatherwoodnews) February 2, 2019
Hard luck, lads.
