Ireland v Wales games have been highly competitive in recent years. If you look back over results since 2008, when Warren Gatland first took charge of Wales, there have been five Welsh wins, four Irish wins and a draw, the latter coming in their last meeting at the Aviva Stadium in 2016. Only three of those ten games have seen double-figure margins of victory. Fans in Dublin will be hoping for another tight and compelling fixture as green battles red.
The 100 Best Rugby Players in the WorldIn the February 2018 issue of Rugby World magazine, we named the 100 best players in the world – and now you can read who made the cut here. Selecting the 100 best players in the world right now was no easy matter and there was plenty of debate amongst the Rugby World team. Here’s how we went about it…In terms of criteria, while class is permanent, form has been given precedence, with final decisions made after the 2017 autumn Internationals.
The boot of Greig Laidlaw guided Scotland to a memorable Six Nations win over France at BT Murrayfield – only their third over Les Bleus this century. It was a nip-tuck affair, particularly in a frenetic first half that saw both sides show a lot of ambition in attack and score two tries apiece – Teddy Thomas with a brace for France, and Sean Maitland and Huw Jones crossing for Scotland.
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".
