Joe Schmidt takes over as Ireland Head Coach

The IRFU have confirmed what seemed to be common knowledge, that Joe Schmidt is the new Head Coach of Ireland.

Joe Schmidt

The Leinster coach has won plenty of plaudits for guiding his side to Heineken Cup glory, and is credited for getting the best out of Jonny Sexton and the talented Leinster backline – it will be interesting to see if he can work the same magic for Ireland.

What are your thoughts on the appointment?

  1. great news. leinster were supurb against biarritz. nacewa’s try link up with sexton was one of the best worked moves u could ever see in any hemisphere and it wasnt even a defensive lapse. he may have slightly less firepower at his disposal with ireland but i think he can get the most out of them.
