RTÉ’s coverage of Ireland first game against Sweden is dividing opinion before a ball has been kicked.
The national broadcaster aired a promo by MMA star Conor McGregor in the build-up to the game.
Check it out here if you missed it.
The UFC star praised the experience of the Ireland team, saying: “These young pups you are going up against were still in nappies when you were knee-deep in the trenches”.
It was meant to stir the blood before kick-off and did exactly that for many, many viewers.
