Six Nations, Two Stories Peter O'Reilly & Kate Rowan read online review & book description:

A celebration of Ireland’s greatest rugby year

Relive, game by game, the key moments in Ireland’s historic 2015 Six Nations campaign, which culminated in a nerve-shredding final weekend when both the women’s and men’s titles were still up for grabs.

Through interviews with players like Sean O’Brien, Niamh Briggs, Nora Stapleton and Robbie Henshaw – as well as members of the backroom staff – journalists Kate Rowan and Peter O’Reilly provide a unique glimpse into the mindset of the two camps. Kate looks at recent advances in the Irish women’s game, while Peter outlines the transformation in the men’s fortunes under Joe Schmidt, ‘the best coach in the world’. They highlight the contrasts between the amateur women’s and professional men’s set-ups and the lifestyles of the players on each team.

Six Nations, Two Stories offers unrivalled depth of coverage of a breakthrough Six Nations season: the first time that Ireland won both senior tournaments in one year, renewing optimism in the future of Irish rugby.
