Pic: Devin Toner's Six Nations winners medals look even better in this close-up photo

This is what all the hard work was for.

After all the nerves and cheers on Saturday, there was ultimately a time for beers as Ireland successfully defended their Six Nations crown following a day of rugby that aged us all but will live long in the memory.

We can't even imagine what the final stages of England v France must have been like for the Irish players to watch, it was probably like waiting for your Leaving Cert result multiplied by a thousand.

The bottom line is that the Six Nations title has been retained by the boys in green and the squad can now add another medal to their already impressive trophy cabinet, for country and province.

We've seen countless photos of the players parading around Murrayfield with the trophy in their arms and a winners medal hanging around their neck but it's hard to see the level of detail and craftsmanship that goes into making both.

Devin Toner has just released an image of his two Six Nations medals lying side by side and they're beauties.

Take a look.

Some weekend! Pretty cool to be able to add another one.
