WATCH: Irish duo nail how the Irish feel about English rugby

Anyone who was in a pub in Ireland watching Wales beat England in the Rugby World Cup will know that we Irish still have a complicated relationship with English sports teams.

Despite ever-closer ties between our two countries, once the Welsh began to claw their way back from a losing position on Saturday night, most Irish fans found themselves roaring them on.

Comedy duo Peter and Chris of Epic News decided to investigate why this was so, with a little help from a fictional English rugby commentator.

Cruel but very funny.

While also taking an accurate shot at all those merrily jumping on the rugby bandwagon.
