An evening with Joe Schmidt and Irish Rugby

We are happy to inform you of an upcoming event on June 13th.

As the Ireland Mens national rugby team prepare to face Japan in two tests (Tokyo and Shizuoka), we will hear from Joe Schmidt (Head Coach), Paul Dean (Team Manager) and a player from the touring squad. Join us for an interactive discussion, where you'll have an opportunity to ask your question to the panel.

The upcoming tour of Japan has received heightened interest with last month's announcement that Ireland will play Japan in the pool stage of Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan. 

This is a unique opportunity to hear directly from one of the most successful and respected coaches in world rugby.

In the relaxed surroundings of the Balcony Restaurant, Roppongi, the panel discussion will start at 7pm followed at 7.45pm by a buffet, drinks and networking with our friends from the Australia New Zealand Chamber of Commerce and the British Chamber of Commerce Japan.
