Stuart McCloskey crossed for a stunning try against Japan

Anyone watching Japan’s thrilling style of play last weekend couldn’t but be impressed, and for Mike Catt sitting in the opposition coaching box, he too admired the daring approach of the Brave Blossoms.

It is far too simplistic, and indeed naive, to expect Ireland to suddenly start adopting a similar mentality because if that was ever to happen, then a shift in culture would be needed from the top-down of Irish rugby.
