Ireland host England tomorrow in the last of their Rugby World Cup warm-up matches, as both sides have a lot to prove to both themselves, and of course their fans. Here's the latest O2 Inside Line, which is jam-packed with banter.
First up, if you're not English and can't stand seeing what other international teams get up to in the week leading up to a big test match, rather don't watch. There's been all sorts of comments flying about, from accusations of propaganda, to outright hatred. It's unbecoming of rugby fans, and if this isn't your thing, that's fine, there's loads of other stuff on the site for you to enjoy.
Austin Healey is back and up to his usual mischief alongside Abi Griffiths, and then we've got everyone's favourite loudmouth, James Haskell as he gets behind the camera and stirs the pot with some of his teamates.
It's all good fun, and we also get to hear what veteran hooker Steve Thompson thinks of the new age technology that takes over his training sessions, as he explains to Martin Bayfield that he'd have no place to hide.
Who do you think is going to take the game tomorrow, and do you think a win tomorrow will have a noticeable effect on the momentum in New Zealand, or is it irrelevant?
