Tullow man Sean O Brien says the new players in the Irish set are blending in well as the squad continue their training ahead of the Six Nations opener against Wales this Sunday.
The side is being put through their paces in Carton House this week and are adjusting to life without Paul O Connell who retired after the World Cup.
It was confirmed yesterday that Luke Fitzgerald will miss the tournament after injuring his knee in training.
Sean says despite the disappointment of the World Cup, the squad are looking forward to Sunday….
Yeah I think its very good (the mood), I don’t think we should have anything else other than confidence going into this.
As I said its an exciting time to be part of this group so it has a freshness about it, you know it’s the 6 nations so, its something to get very excited about and everyone is looking forward to it.
We just can’t wait to get out on the field at the weekend.
Commenting on a question regarding Ireland’s style of play and any changes to it, Sean said there’s no major changes to their game, they have licence to go out and play whats ahead of them and that wont change.
