An exclusive look at the legendary moments of Irish rugby union’s historic 70-21 victory over England in Dublin’s iconic Lansdowne Road on Saturday night.
The match, known as The Dublin Stakes, was won by the hosts with the Irish at half-time having led by a touchdown.RTE’s Irish Rugby Football Channel is the most comprehensive archive of the game in the world.
The first official video from the game, a clip of an Ireland tackle, was shown on the BBC’s Live at Six programme, and has become one of the most widely shared clips from the match.
This clip, with the official caption “This is what happens when you win a big game”, captures the intensity and determination of the Irish players.
It also captures their determination to win the game against England, and their determination not to give up, the same determination which would eventually lead to the game’s final score of 70-19.
The second official clip, taken from a live broadcast of the match by the Irish broadcaster RTÉ, shows the Irish defence, with Ireland players taking on England players.
This is the moment when Ireland take the field, the final whistle blows and Ireland’s players go on to win it.RTÉ’s footage from the historic match, as well as the official match commentary, is available on the RTÉ website.
