Saturday will see British and Irish Lions team-mates Dan Biggar and Johnny Sexton write the next chapter in what is one of the best head-to-head duels in northern hemisphere rugby. Neither No.10 can boast a particularly magnificent running game, but they are two of the best generals around and have hearts the size of bowling balls.
Wales coach Rob Howley deserves the credit for their new thirst for attacking flair and not the Scarlets. That’s the view of Ireland defence coach Andy Farrell, who coached alongside Howley and Wales head coach Warren Gatland on the 2017 and 2013 British and Irish Lions tours. The Scarlets have been dazzling fans with their attacking style that saw them romp to the Guinness PRO12 title last season – and they’ve carried it on this term, most notable running riot against Bath in January.
Wales and Ireland continue their preparations for what is a must-win Six Nations clash for Warren Gatland's men. Yesterday, the Wales boss named his 23 for the match as Dan Biggar, Liam Williams and Leigh Halfpenny return to the starting line-up having all recovered from injury. The trio missed the defeat to England, during which Wales were dominated in the air, and all three bring a wealth of experience and aerial ability to the Aviva Stadium.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
