Can the Irish get back to winning ways without Joe Schmidt at the helm?

Ireland Six Nations Fixtures 2020

The 2020 Six Nations fixtures have been unveiled, giving rugby supporters the chance to get super excited about the tournament.

Ireland are once again coming off the back of a poor Rugby World Cup in which they lost to Japan and got totally smoked by the All Blacks in the quarter-finals. Add to that Joe Schmidt’s departure and the retirement of Rory Best, then it could be trying times before they are back to their best.
