2014 RBS 6 NATIONS: Saturday, February 22 ENGLAND (3rd) v IRELAND (1st), Twickenham, 4pm (live RTÉ Two/BBC One/RTÉ Radio 1/IRFU Live Blog) Team News: Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt has named an unchanged team for Saturday's RBS 6 Nations showdown with England at Twickenham. Paul O'Connell will lead the side on the occasion of his 90th cap as Ireland seek their first win at Twickenham since 2010. Chris Henry, a try scorer against Wales, retains the number 7 jersey and is joined in the back row by Peter O'Mahony and Jamie Heaslip. Conor Murray and Jonathan Sexton continue as the half-back pairing with Brian O'Driscoll and Gordon D'Arcy lining out in midfield. O'Driscoll's 63rd Championship appearance will see him go level on the Six Nations all-time list with Ronan O'Gara, while his 139th international outing (8 caps with the Lions) equals George Gregan's record as the most-capped player in Test rugby history. There will also be a caps milestone for hooker Rory Best as he overtakes David Humphreys as Ulst ...

Six Nations 2014: Ireland 28-6 Scotland IRELAND (11) 28 Tries: Trimble, Heaslip, R KearneyCons: Sexton 2Pens: Sexton 3 SCOTLAND (3) 6 Pens: Laidlaw 2Ireland recovered from a nervous first-half display to run out comfortable winners against a disappointing Scotland side in the Six Nations clash. = With Paul O'Connell a late withdrawal for the Irish, Scotland bossed early possession but Andrew Trimble's try put the home side 11-3 ahead at the break. Greig Laidlaw's second penalty gave the Scots hope but Jamie Heaslip's try left Ireland in firm control. As the Irish attack improved, Rob Kearney notched a third home touchdown. Scotland's early dominance of possession against a hesitant Irish side suggested an upset could be on the cards, but the visiting attack had little penetration as the home side ran out comfortable winners. Ahead of his first Six Nations match since taking charge, Ireland coach Joe Schmidt looked to have been dealt a major blow when captain O'Connell was ruled out after a chest infection ...
Every day this week we asked our supporters to choose players for different positions on the Irish Rugby team. Here are your final 15; Cian Healy, Rory Best, Martin Moore, Paul O’Connell, Mike McCarthy, Peter O’Mahony, Jordi Murphy, Jamie Heaslip, Johnny Sexton, Conor Murray, Brian O’Driscoll, Luke Fitzgerald Rob Kearney, Simon Zebo and Gordon Darcy. Now.. Who’s your captain?
DUBLIN, 23/01/2014 - The extended brinkmanship between players and the IRFU over contracts drew to a close today when Irish number eight Jamie Heaslip signed a new three-year agreement that will keep him in Ireland until June 2017. It brings to an end a will-he-won’t-he saga that has been running since long before Christmas over the immediate futures of Heaslip, flanker Seán O’Brien, Irish captain Paul O’Connell and wing Keith Earls. All of them have now signed, as has Irish scrumhalf Conor Murray, who did so before the New Year. Given the climate and the reported silly money being offered from French Top 14 clubs, it represents a triumph for the IRFU and is in stark contrast to the fortunes of the Welsh Rugby Union, who today lost Cardiff fullback Leigh Halfpenny to the club purported to have been most interested in O’Brien, reigning Heineken Cup champions Toulon.
Jamie Heaslip has signed a new three-year contract with the Irish Rugby Football Union which will keep him at Leinster until at least June 2017. Heaslip had been strongly linked with a possible move to French club Toulon.

More rumours regarding Irish players in the French media today... Under the headline "Ireland in Danger", Midi Olympique suggests that French clubs will increasingly look to the Irish provinces for new signings. The piece mentions the financial problems the IRFU face due to the recent €26 million loss in projected earnings. Sexton has opened the floodgates for a "mass exodus of star players" like Wales has experienced, the article claims. Sean O'Brien, Jamie Heaslip, Gordon D'Arcy, Keith Earls, Donnacha Ryan, James Downey and Tom Court all mentioned as "targets of choice" for the French clubs with their contracts ending next summer. A genuine possibility or simply transfer hype from the kings of rumour at Midi Olympique?

AUSTRALIA V BRITISH & Irish Lions The British and Irish Lions will pit their vast experience against a Wallaby team featuring three debutants and a rookie flyhalf in their bid to seize the momentum in today’s first Test in Brisbane. The tourists, chasing their first series win in 16 years, go into the opening match of the three-Test series anchored by a powerful set-piece, quality leadership with three Lions captains in their ranks, and the calming experience of centre Brian O’Driscoll and lock Paul O’Connell. The two Irishmen have 222 Test caps between them, with a dozen for the Lions, giving them a decided edge over the Wallabies, who won the last series in Australia in 2001. O’Driscoll and O’Connell are joined by five other survivors from the series against the Springboks in South Africa four years ago in scrum-half Mike Phillips, prop Adam Jones, lock Alun Wyn Jones and back-rowers Tom Croft and Jamie Heaslip. The forward pack alone has played a combined total of 403 Tests, and 17 Lions Test ...
EIGHT NEW TEST LIONS TO FACE AUSTRALIA The British & Irish Lions today announced the team to play the Qantas Wallabies in the 1st Test at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Saturday.

The forward pack contains a wealth of Lions Test experience with Jamie Heaslip, Tom Croft, Paul O’Connell, Alun Wyn Jones and Adam Jones sharing 17 Tests. Loose-head prop Alex Corbisiero, who joined the tour as a replacement, also makes his debut along with Warburton and hooker Tom Youngs. British & Irish Lions Tour Manager Andy Irvine said: "We are now at the business end of the tour. You can feel the excitement and commitment within the squad now that we are back in Brisbane and the 1st Test is just days aw ...

Interestingly, Will Greenwood picks Simon Zebo and leaves out Jamie Heaslip in his test XV:
in my opinion as a avid rugby fan my starting 15 for the lions v australia should be the following: 15: Leigh Halfpenny, 14: Simon Zebo, 13: Brian O' Driscoll, 12: Manu Tuilagi, 11: George North, 10: Johnny Sexton 09: Mike Phillips, 01: Mako Vunipola, 02: Tom Youngs, 03: Adam Jones, 04: Geoff Parling, 05: Paul O'Connell, 06: Tom Croft, 07: Sam Warburton (c) 08: Jamie Heaslip... * This is take into account Jamie Roberts not being fit on saturday and also i think Justin Tipuric should be playing over Sam Warburton but sam is the captain so not going to happen..

.for the second time in six days when they take on a Combined Country selection on Tuesday in Newcastle. The former Ireland skipper is joined by three more Irishmen, including his successor as Irish captain, Jamie Heaslip, Sean O’Brien and Conor Murray. Rory Best will hope to get a chance to prove his worth off the bench. O’Driscoll will, for the first time since 2009, renew his centre partnership with Jamie Roberts in a squad with no recognised experienced out-half. Stuart Hogg starts at number 10 after being designated third choice for that role behind Owen Farrell and Jonathan Sexton. The two leading out-halves have been involved in all three tour matches to date and, during yesterday’s 12-22 win over the Reds, Sexton complained of a tight hamstring. Hogg will be one of four starters who also played a large part in Brisbane. Alex Cuthbert is given another chance on the wing, opposite George North who played over an hour against Queensland following a stinger injury to Manu Tuilagi’s shoulder. L ...
Brian O'Driscoll will captain the British & Irish Lions against Western Force on Wednesday as one of eight Ireland players named in a completely changed starting XV. O’Driscoll, playing in his fourth Lions tour, will lead the side in the continued absence of Wales’ RBS 6 Nations Grand Slam winning captain Sam Warburton, who is recovering from a knee problem. Gatland has made 15 changes to the side that started the 59-8 victory over the Barbarians in Hong Kong on Saturday, ensuring Paul O’Connell, captain that day, is rested. Along with O’Driscoll, Tommy Bowe, Jonny Sexton, Connor Murray, Cian Healy, Rory Best, Sean O’Brien and Jamie Heaslip have all been selected to start. For O’Driscoll it is a return to Perth, the city where he started his first game for the Lions at full-back in 2001. “I am a bit more comfortable playing at 13 this time," he said. "It is very exciting. I haven't lost any of the buzz about being involved with the Lions. It is still a very special place to be. “Now we hav ...
Leinster Rugby have named their sides for the British & Irish Cup final v Newcastle as well as the Amlin Challenge Cup final v Stade. There's no BOD, who hasn't recovered from his injury last weekend as Madigan continues at 12, accommodating Sexton in his penultimate Leinster appearance. 7 of the 8 in the pack are Irish qualified. In the 'A' side, the likes of Bent, Dominic Ryan, and Noel Reid will want to leave an impression going into next season. Both sides are captained from number 8 - Jordi Murphy for the 'A' side and Jamie Heaslip for the firsts. Can they do the double Friday night?

Six Nations 2013 Ireland 13. France 13 Jamie Heaslip try, Paddy Jackson con, two pen a draw for Ireland. I can't say it was a brilliant result they should have beat France. I suppose you would say it was an average result. It was a better result than the England and Scotland game that was played in the same weather as the France game this evening. Ireland should be well used of playing in this sort of weather all it very does is rain so they should be used of it by now. Then there is the ref Steve Walsh he only had an average game today how could he give the France try when you couldn't see it on TV he should have gone to the TMO and then there is the shoulder off the ball on Keith Earls how is that what a penalty instead he gave a 22 drop out. Then there is the commentators saying that could be Brian o Driscoll last game for Ireland he probably will play the Italy game. What ever happens after the Italy game well that will be to be seen. That is up to Brain and he will probably do what is good for him so ...
What a performance from Ireland. Should of won in the end. Fair play to Conor Murray who was man of the match also to Paddy Jackson who played brillant at no 10 and Jamie Heaslip putting in a great captains performance. But when BODgoes where will we be without him.
What do Houston Texans defensive end JJ Watt and Jamie Heaslip have in common? Both prefer the NFL!
Just listening to Jamie Heaslip being interviewed after the debacle in Scotland. What a load of waffle, bring back BOD, Axel Foley bloody anybody as cap'n.
Declan Kidney and Jamie Heaslip should be publicly executed at dawn tomorrow and their heads planted atop the spire in oconnell st.
How can such a group of fantastic individual players consistently fail when put together into an international team? Its mind boggling. Even today in our line up, Seán O'Brien, Brian O'Driscoll, Rob Kearney, Jamie Heaslip - they are all world class and will walk into the lions team this summer. Yet, when they're put together into the Irish team - they are a shambles. Incredibly frustrating team to try to support.
Sorry but Jamie Heaslip and Rob Kearney would not be in my Lions starting XV

England Ashton not expecting Dublin repeat performance 4 February 2013, 10:53 amBy Sportsbeat Wing Chris Ashton insists there will be no repeat performance of England's 24-8 loss to Ireland in 2011 as they prepare to face up to Jamie Heaslip's side in Dublin this weekend. Two years ago Martin Johnson’s England headed to Ireland in the penultimate weekend of the RBS 6 Nations, knowing a win in Dublin would hand them a first Grand Slam since 2003. However, it all went wrong for England as Brian O’Driscoll and Tommy Bowe touched down to seal a comfortable win for the Irish. England have started their 2013 RBS 6 Nations campaign with a 38-18 win against Scotland at Twickenham, with wing Ashton among the try scorers as he took his international total to 17, while Ireland ground out a surprise victory against Wales in Cardiff. And Ashton insists Stuart Lancaster’s England side that head to Dublin this weekend are a completely different beast from two years ago. “We will go there in a completely differen ...

Sweet baby Jesus, Jamie Heaslip is something else.

Jamie Heaslip just said 'Thank You' to the referee after being warned about giving away penalties imagine a footballer doing that.
Is it just me or does anyone else think Jamie Heaslip is a babe?
Jamie Heaslip took a horrible shoeing at the back of a ruck & appeared to deal with it by pursing his lips & looking mildly annoyed.
You will not refer to him as Jamie, you jugheaded French pillock. He's Mr. Heaslip to the likes of you.

World Sports News Champions Leinster face nervous Cup wait Two-time defending champions Leinster defeated Exeter 29-20 on Saturday to stay alive in the European Cup, but they face a nail biting Sunday which could doom their hopes of a fourth title in five years. The Irish side finished second in Pool 5 behind runaway leaders Clermont and can only make the quarter-finals by claiming the remaining best runners-up spot after Montpellier booked their last-eight place earlier in the day. Leinster had trailed Exeter 17-12 at the interval after converted tries from Neil Clark and a penalty try helped edge the visitors' scores from Gordon D'Arcy and Rob Kearney. Brian O'Driscoll then brought Leinster level before Jamie Heaslip's try earned a bonus point victory. Leinster finished their group campaign with 20 points, but Irish rivals Munster can deny them a quarter-final spot if they score four tries and beat Racing Metro on Sunday in Pool 1 where Saracens are also expected to qualify by beating Edinburgh. Clermon ...

EDINBURGH 16 V 31 LEINSTER Leinster scored four converted tries as they saw off Edinburgh in convincing fashion in Friday's RaboDirect PRO12 clash at Murrayfield...Joe Schmidt post-match reaction... Joe Schmidt's men struck for two well-worked tries just before the break, with Gordon D'Arcy's 38th-minute score moving them 14 points clear. Greig Laidlaw landed a late penalty to make it 17-6 at the interval, but Leinster pushed on with replacement Shane Jennings teeing up the province's third try for Jonathan Sexton. Sexton converted his own effort and also turned Ian Madigan's bonus point try into a seven-pointer. Madigan, another player to make an impact off the bench, took a Leo Cullen pass to dive in by the posts for his fifth try of the league campaign. With Leinster losing Jamie Heaslip to the sin-bin, Edingburgh prop Willem Nel bounded over for a late consolation try. The five-point return and improved all-round display, allied to the successful returns of Rob Kearney, Brian O'Driscoll and Luke Fitzg ...
Very good looking Leinster Team tonight,reckon they'll find it tough to start but run a muck late on. Jamie Heaslip due a try so at 16/1 it's worth a fiver!
LEINSTER TEAM TO FACE EDINBURGH...The Leinster team to face Edinburgh in Friday night's RaboDirect PRO12 clash in Murrayfield (KO: 7.35pm) has been named...The province have been boosted by the return from injury of Lions trio Luke Fitzgerald, Rob Kearney and Brian O'Driscoll ahead of the trip to the Scottish capital. Kearney - who will make his 122nd appearance for the province - is named in a pacy-looking back three alongside Fitzgerald and Fionn Carr, with O'Driscoll linking up in midfield with Gordon D'Arcy. Eoin Reddan, who is set to make his 75th Leinster appearance, partners Jonathan Sexton at half back. Leo Cullen leads an all Ireland qualified starting XV which includes the likes of Cian Healy, Jamie Heaslip and Sean O'Brien in the pack. Shane Jennings has recovered from illness to take his place on the replacements bench alongside fellow Ireland internationals Michael Bent and Isaac Boss. In addition to TG4 who will show the game live on Friday, the Official Leinster Supporters Club (OLSC) can c ...

Top 10 crimes against McCaw 23 September, 2012 1 August 19, 2006 New Zealand 34 Australia 27, Auckland A free-flowing game was bringing out the best in both sides at Eden Park until Wallaby wing Lote Tuqiri lifted McCaw in a tackle and speared him into the turf just after halftime. It was ugly and needless, with the skipper lucky not to have been seriously injured. "It was a tactic to take McCaw out of the game," said All Blacks coach Graham Henry. "But that's part of rugby and you live with that. If they've got a great player, you want to nullify him as well." Tuqiri was banned for 11 weeks. 2 June 12, 2010 New Zealand 66 Ireland 28, New Plymouth The Irish pack had control of the ball a few metres out just a few minutes into the game. McCaw had appeared on the wrong side but was trying to get out the way. The ball was clear, the Irish halfback wanted to get his hands on it, but No 8 Jamie Heaslip dropped his knee into McCaw's head in full view of the referee. Heaslip, on his return to New Zealand this ye ...
