Irish Rugby coach Andy Farrell has given his first press conference on New Zealand soil ahed of their eagerly anticipated Summer tour. The touring party arrived on three different flights but have trained together since the earlier part of this week.
“We’re here, we’re glad to be here,” Farrell said. “We’ve had a few days’ training and we’re up and running.
“It’s huge. We’ve missed it. This group, we should have gone to Australia and Fiji in the last few years and we’ve some guys that are on 20 or so caps that have never toured before.
“So it’s pretty important that we get away together and enjoy each other’s company but also test ourselves against the best team in the world.”
