Higher or Lower with Irish Rugby players

Aviva Insurance

As proud sponsor of the home of Irish Rugby, Aviva Stadium, we’re just like the rest of the nation and getting behind the team ahead of the biggest tournament of all this autumn.

Earlier this year, we decided to put a few players through their paces with a game of Higher or Lower! Jimmy O’Brien, Jordan Larmour and Jack Conan were the brave contestants tackling questions on their teammates, France, and plenty more.

Transcript  for video Aviva game of higher or lower

Kathy: At Aviva we know that the Irish rugby team has got what it takes to turn up, every time.

But today, we'll find out if they've got what it takes to turn up or turn down. I'm your host, Kathy Kavanagh, and today we're going to be putting to the test Jimmy O'Brien, Jack Conan and Jordan Larmour as we play Higher or Lower.

Okay, lads, so the rules are easy. I'm going to read some statements and all you have to do is use your arrows to point in the direction of whether the answer is higher or lower.

Are you ready?

Jordan: Ready

Jack: Let’s go

Jimmy: Ready to go!

Approximately 30,000.

Jack: Hard luck Jimmy!

Jimmy: You might have caught up to me. You might have caught me.

Jordan: Get out of here, man!

Kathy: In 2022, 40% of Peter O'Mahony’s Instagram posts were of his garden.

Jordan: Way more.

Jack: Yeah, I’d say it’s at least 50.

Kathy: The correct answer is higher, 50%.

Well done lads! I take it you follow his Instagram posts so.

Jack: I have him muted.

Kathy: Around 10.5 million people live in the Paris metropolitan area.

Kathy: The correct answer is lower.

Jack: I'll have that one fact checked and I'm stricken from the record please if it was incorrect.

Is someone keeping track of who's winning?

Jimmy: You're definitely not!

Jack: I think I've only gotten two wrong. I'm winning.

Jimmy: No!

Jordan: Nope! Cheating.

Kathy: 40% of Irish cars failed their NCT in 2021.

The correct answer is higher, at 47.2%.

Jack: I’m tryin’ to save the planet.

Kathy: France holds the world record for most roundabouts with approximately 25,000 across the country.

Jimmy: Wait?

Jack: Wait…25?

Kathy: The correct answer is higher, 30,000. So you all got that one right, congratulations.

The high-speed train network in France, the TGV has a maximum speed of 270 kilometers per hour.

The correct answer is higher at 300 kilometers per hour.

Kathy: Well done Jordan!

Jack: I didn’t think it would be that high.

Kathy: 99 million people visit France annually.

Jack: That’s a lot of people.

Jordan: It is a lot of people.

Jack: But I think it is like the biggest tourist destination in the world. I'm gonna go with higher.

Jordan: Alright we’ll go with higher.
