The Ankle Tap is a rugby blog for egg-shaped folk. The aim of this blog is to deliver in-depth analysis and commentary on Irish Rugby, and on World Rugby as a whole.
The name of the blog stems from the iconic Stringer tap tackle on Jason Robinson on 6th March 2004 in Twickenham, one of our first, and certainly one of our most vivid rugby memories.
Heroes include the aforementioned Strings, BOD, the Welsh sidestepping Wing Wizard Shane Williams and of course Stephen “The Dumptruck” Ferris.
And just in case you don’t immediately identify with said hand-trip (shame on you), here it is.
