My dad rang me the other day and said he had got his hands on 2 tickets to the rbs 6 nations match ireland vs italy at the aviva stadium in dublin on the 25-2-2012. so i took him up on the offer first of all i want to say the stadium is stunning and is a must see if you visit dublin not only is its looks great but every seat in the house has a spectacular view.
We had the luck of been sitting in the premium level seating which i must say is pretty sweet. The beer was flowing before the match and the banter running up to the start of the match was pretty good. Soon after we took our seats in section 325 we were greated with a roar in the stadium to the irish and italian teams coming out on the pitch to warm up..

All in all it was a great day out ireland were the better tactical team on the day but fair play to italy they tried there best after all the score was 10-10 at half time i hope you enjoy the pictures and the write up.
