"I'm really proud of the players" says Greg McWilliams, who is the head coach of IRFU, as Ireland's rugby team prepares for their much-anticipated summer tour of Japan.  

McWilliams shares insight on the intensive training the players are going through to adapt to the new climate and prepare for what will be a very challenging, yet exciting, season ahead. He says “their work rate has been amazing... we get better every time we're together” and seems optimistic that the team is well prepared for their match against Japan this Saturday.

She explains “it's going to be tough, its really hot, its really heavy” but believes that this tour has made the team stronger and brought them closer together. She states that she is “buzzing” about the game ahead.
