Irish management on 'oldest starting team'

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt and forwards coach Simon Easterby reflect on their selection of the oldest starting XV in World Cup history for Sunday's World Cup Pool D game against Romania.

"We have a lot of experience in the team as regards what players have achieved in their careers and hopefully that will stand us in good stead come Sunday," observed Easterby.

"Hopefully the team won't show its age, but a little energy and enthusiasm because I think we'll need it," added Schmidt.
