Possibly, but take it from me, England coming to Dublin is always a big deal. People who never watch the sport tune in and one could argue it's the game that carries the most pressure of the year. So talking of a bitter after taste, yeah the Irish have that in spades. Many here just can't leave the past in the past.
I guess we'll see where both teams stand in the august warm ups, England will be rearing for some retribution in twickenham in a few weeks, it'll be a good test for the Irish.
