Management Brothers in Arms

The Aviva Stadium has been back centre stage in Irish Sport with the opening home game of the NatWest 6 Nations and the launch of the SSE Airtricity League drawing attention once again.

Aviva announced last month that they have signed a five year extension to the naming rights that have been in place since the stadium was redeveloped in 2010.

They took the opportunity of having Joe Schmidt and Martin O’Neill side by side to gather their thoughts on international management and Irish sport.

There was a lot of mutual respect, as you would expect, and O’Neill was also happy to share his thoughts on the Scrum in rugby.

It’s rare to get the two sitting side by side and was a worthwhile ten minutes of their time on the day.
