WATCH: Young Irish rugby fan meets the team in lovely video

This is class.

Ireland defeated Italy in Sunday's Six Nations game, which was a hell of a lot closer than many thought it would be.

Italy went in ahead at half time, but a second half surge from the boys in green saw them win the game by a scoreline of 26-16.

We're sure there's loads of relieved Irish fans out there following the game, and young Emmet O'Neill is definitely one of them.

The young lad from Monaghan appeared to have had the trip of a lifetime on Saturday as he flew to Rome to support the lads.

Emmet got to meet Joe Schmidt and his favourite players, Johnny Sexton and Conor Murray as they boarded the flight in Dublin Airport.

As you can imagine, he was absolutely chuffed.

Ireland can still win the Six Nations, following Wales' victory over England on Saturday evening.

Up next for the Irish team is France in the Aviva on Sunday 10 March.
