This New Irish Rugby Video Will Make The Hairs On The Back Of Your Neck Stand Up


Get ready to feel that hefty swell of patriotism in your chest: a new ad for the Irish Rugby team has just dropped and it’s seriously moving.

“Who we are is how we play” is the latest phase of Vodafone’s Team of Us sponsorship of the Irish rugby, and their new ad campaign gives a rare glimpse into the childhoods and upbringings of Rory Best, Tadhg Furlong, Conor Murray and Tiernan O’Halloran, showing how like all of us their surroundings have defined who they are as people – and who we are is how we play. 

We see scenes that are familiar to all of us growing up and scenes that show their paths to becoming Irish rugby players. And it’s moving AF.

From newborns to professional athletes, the ad shows real-life scenes from the lives of the team.

Looks like Irish Rugby has always been in their blood. Fair play Vodafone, fair play.
