This weekend on Virgin Media will be dedicated to Ireland’s greatest rugby moments

James Fenton

Virgin Media have been pulling it out of the bag in recent weeks with their themed weekends dedicated to one aspect of sports programming.

First, Virgin Media treated Liverpool fans to three whole days of their greatest European moments, before Easter Weekend saw Manchester United’s finest hours brought back for their army of Irish supporters.

This weekend sees a similar idea but with the round ball replaced by the oval one as viewers relive the greatest moments of Irish rugby. Across the weekend, Virgin Media will air every game from Ireland’s 2018 Grand Slam victory as well as the iconic game against Wales which sealed the same crown nine years previously.

Among other memorable classics will be the historic day in 2007 when England came to Croke Park and got rightly mauled by a fired-up Irish side. It’s this game that kicks things off tonight on Virgin Media Two at 10.30pm before Virgin Media Sport hosts the rest of the epic encounters on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Another lockdown weekend very much sorted.
