The clock turns red as it passes the 40-minute park, the Irish are parked on the French five-metre line, their defence looks in disarray, it looks as if we're about to open up a sizeable gap in the scoreline just on the stroke of half-time, and right across the Aviva stadium, minds are focused collectively on one thing.

Should I risk leaving now to beat the bar queues at half-time?

Let's not pretend we haven't been that soldier, pitting our thirst for beer against our thirst for national glory. But now, this conflict is no more, thanks to Rapid Q – a super-handy app that allows you to order right from the comfort of your seat.

The app allows you to select what you want from a food and drink menu, then collect your order by showing the vendor a code on your smartphone screen. Better still, you can pay using card – so there's no dawning moment of realisation as you pass through the turnstile that you forgot to stop at the ATM in Ballsbridge.

Sounds like a win to us. Now if only the boys in green manage to serve up a win on the pitch, we'll all be happy...
