Legendary scenes as Ireland storm teammate’s house in Grand Slam celebrations
Ireland took the mantra ‘no man left behind’ to a new level this week, by storming the house of teammate Garry Ringrose on day four of their Grand Slam celebrations.
According to reports online, the centre did not want to go out for the fourth day of drinking after the team secured the Grand Slam in Dublin on Saturday, so the Ireland squad decided to crash his house instead. A video has surfaced online of almost the entire squad crammed in his kitchen.
Take a look at the video shared by RugbyLad on Twitter:

This is perhaps a glimpse of the tight-knit squad that Andy Farrell has assembled, and it shows on the pitch as the entire squad appear to be on the same wave length. This squad not only have a Grand Slam to their name, but are also ranked number one in the world heading into the World Cup.
As a result of this success, Farrell has been linked with the British & Irish Lions job for the tour of Australia in 2025. Former Lion and Irish Grand Slam winner Tommy Bowe has recently tipped Farrell for the job.
“I think he would be a fantastic Lions coach,” Bowe told the PA news agency. “He gets the ethos of it.
“He loves everything about the Lions and to have toured with him in 2013, he epitomises what’s great about it.
“He’s very much about working extremely hard on the pitch but also being able to have a laugh off the pitch and I think that’s what the Lions is. The last tour (to South Africa in 2021), I think unfortunately got away from that.
“I think the next Lions tour, it’s about bringing back the ethos of what’s special about the Lions and making sure that the players really enjoy every minute of it, and the supporters too.
“I think Andy Farrell would be the perfect guy to do that.”
