Irish Rugby – Making a big impact on social

Sotic are providing content support to Irish Rugby during the 2018 Six Nations ChampionshipSotic’s sister design agency Grip (find them on twitter at @grippedbysport) has worked with Irish Rugby to create some super score graphics for the 2018 Six Nations Championship which the Sotic Content Team are managing as part of our support services to the IRFU during the Championship.

Ireland got their 2018 campaign underway last weekend against France at the Stade France in Paris. Ireland led 3-9 at the half-time break but France came back with a converted try on 71 minutes which looked as though it would give them the win.

It was, by all accounts, not the most scintillating game of rugby every played until a sensational, last-gasp drop-goal from Irish outhalf Jonathan Sexton after an exhausting 41 phases of play gave the visitors the win.

Condequently this particular graphic had a big impact on social media with over 6.5k likes and almost 3k retweets on Twitter.

As an Irish Rugby fan, all I can say is that I hope to see more of the same, though let’s not leave it till the last second lads eh?
