'The Travelling Support Is Incredible' – Herring

Ireland ended the opening weekend of Rugby World Cup 2023 exactly where they want to be – sitting at the top of Pool B with five points and a very healthy points difference of +74.

They had some setbacks along the way, with Robbie Henshaw's pre-match withdrawal for a hamstring issue followed by Gabriel Rupanu's early try for Romania, but Andy Farrell's men went on to score seven unanswered second-half tries.
