St Patrick’s Day Sporting feast…

Tomorrow could provide a big boost for Irish sport, or just leave us nursing a Triple Crown… The cricketers appear to be hatching some mad scheme to overturn Pakistan (aye, right). It starts at 14.00GMT. Whilst the rugby team will have to set the pace and not only have to beat a formidable Italian side, but put enough points on the board to get well beyond the French, who play Scotland at home, and stay well clear of the English, who play last and will have to thump Wales in Cardiff if either of the others win. Ireland start at 13.30GMT.

That’s one big ask and a pipe dream. Or is it?
