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.

Can England stop scoring tries please, it's bad manners#IREvENG— Mike Ross (@MikeRoss03) February 2, 2019
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

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.
We might need some sort of a backstop arrangement...#IREvENG— Brendan McFlute (@BrendanMcFlute) February 2, 2019
Hard luck, lads.
