Mick Galway said we have the x-factor


We’re all fans of Ronan O’Gara here[1] but I am left with slightly bemused by his interview in The Guardian. [found via Blogorrah] Not so much for what he said,

we always expect to beat England. But the English public and their team have a hard time believing that. They still assume they should come out on top every time because, apparently, the natural order in rugby is that England are the greatest. It’s probably down to the way they’ve been brought up.

because there is a certain amount of truth to that, but the fact that he said it at all. It may have been with a “mischievous glint” in his eye, but just imagine how it could get reported in other, less restrained papers.

He is also totally correct in his comments about Sky[2] Although did he really need to put it like this:

Their commentators are enthusing about the quality and excitement and I’m just like, ‘Oh my God!’

Valley Girl O’Gara :)
