How social media reacted to Ireland v Italy being postponed

Ireland’s Six Nations fixture against Italy in Dublin has been postponed until further notice due to the coronavirus outbreak in northern Italy, the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) has announced.

The match at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin — originally scheduled for March 7 — has been postponed, and the IRFU has said an announcement over further arrangements will be made in the next few days.

Here, RUCK looks at the reaction from social media.

Winger: SHANE WILLIAMS (Wales) – 12,374


Centre: Brian O’Driscoll (Ireland) – 21,392


Centre: Will Greenwood (England) – 10,697

Greenwood followed his father Dick into an England shirt. While his father was a prickly back row player, the younger Greenwood was one of the finest centres to grace the England midfield.


Winger: Tommy Bowe (Ireland) – 5,793
