A collection of Irish tries from over the years

A collection of Irish tries from over the years

The RBS Six nations 2009 kicks off this weekend as we see England play Italy, Scotland take on champions Wales, and Ireland host France.

We came across this nice collection of Irish tries from over the years that we thought would be a nice way to get you in the mood for what is probably the biggest clash of the weekend.

Dublin will be the venue as the hosts look to end their run of seven straight defeats to the French, following on from their disappointing fourth place finish in 2008 which saw the end of coach Eddie OSullivan.

Now, under Declan Kidney, theyre hoping for a turnaround.

Former Ireland captain Keith Wood believes Ireland's Six Nations title ambitions hinge on Saturday's opening match.

"It's all about momentum and we have the hardest game first, against France," he said. "If we lose it we have no momentum. If we win it then we're in a very good place.

"I had no expectations for Ireland up until three weeks ago, but they do have a chance. They have a settled look about them."

Time will tell if Ireland can produce the type of tries we see in this video. But regardless of the result, the match should be a humdinger as the home crowd will be out in full force, both in the streets of Dublin, and at Croke Park.
