If Conlan's prediction for Ireland's Six Nations clash with champions England rings true, Joe Schmidt's men will finish their campaign on a high.
As part of a wider predictions piece in The Telegraph, Conlan strikes a confident tone. He declared:
"Ireland to pull off the victory and win by 10 points. The team always gets up to play England and it's St Patrick's weekend."
That's the spirit Michael lad.
Backing up Conlan's words were former Ireland outhalf David Humphreys and horse trainer Ted Walsh, while Amir Khan and Martin Bayfield sided with England.
