Ireland and Leinster scrum half Eoin Reddan is certainly looking forward to the games in August and also getting back to play in the Aviva Stadium. “These games were always going to be important for our preparations.
“The squad has been working hard during June and July, so it is a case of the coaches seeing who is ready for that first game in terms of preseason fitness. I think there is a good balance for us in wanting to win those games, as we do every time we put on the green jersey, but making sure that as many of the squad can raise those match fitness levels.
“The intensity levels at training this week in camp have been really good. At this time of the season we probably don’t have the same level of contact in training as we are doing over the next week or so, but it has been good and you can see competition for places coming through as well, which can only be beneficial for us.
“The home games against France, Connacht and England are a great way for us to complete our preparations at home in front of our home supporters, and they don’t come any harder when you have two of the top international sides coming to the Aviva as well as the local rivalry that comes with playing Connacht.
“Playing at the Aviva before we depart for New Zealand is probably the best outcome we could have had in terms of the schedule of matches, so we can look forward to another cracking atmosphere and a good send off before we depart for the World Cup.”
