WATCH: Neil Cronin on family World Cup disappointment and taking his chances

Neil Cronin had more than a passing eye on Ireland’s progress in the Word Cup. Not only was he keeping track of his Munster teammates, Cronin had a vested interest with older brother Sean part of the travelling party.

Ultimately the World Cup was a disappointment for all and the Munster scrum half admits that support and distance is a tough balancing act when it comes to such heartache.

“After these kind of situations you kind of give them as much space as you can. I dropped him a text to make sure he was still alright.

“For a lot of the lads you make contact just to make sure that lads at home are thinking about ye, but you don’t want to go too much into it either because they are hurting.

“I don’t think that talking to the lads at home quite so soon would be the best thing.”
