Remembering St Patrick's Day 1995 - USA v Ireland

16th March 2020, 23:21

Twenty-five years ago today - the USA met Ireland in an historic match at the RFK Stadium, Washington, the home of the Washington Redskins.

The game was broadcast live and in full on ESPN as a part of a St Patrick's Day celebration.

Ireland was coached by former GB and Oldham loose forward, Terry Flanagan and the USA were coached by former St George star and rugby league pioneer, David Niu

The "star" appearance was a cameo from ex GB Lions, Wigan and Widnes centre - Joe Lydon - you will need to watch a good way through to catch a glimpse

It was a fantastic game - you will need to watch to find out the score - but it's worth the wait.

Happy St Patrick's Day!
