  • Poland's 'Barbie' presidential candidate sparks frustration of Poles hoping for left's reviva

  • Limerick politicians in row over fuel smuggling

    IN a hard-hitting statement, Fine Gael TD Patrick O’Donovan has repeated his call for tougher action on fuel-smuggling.

The main concern now for Schmidt – aside from the rapidly escalating hype - is the fitness and well-being of Sexton, Sean O’Brien and Jared Payne, all of whom appeared to be withdrawn with injuries before the end. q
