    O'Gara in a Welsh top - my worst nightmare!

    Yeah he had that after the match against Wales that gave Ireland the Grand Slam - I thought it was a bit disrespectful.

    My favorite is when he gets bounced by Shane, who is half a foot, and a stone, shorter

    Haha, never ever rated O'Gara, my mate is always saying how good he is and it really frustrates me. Though I can't argue with the facts - loads of Irish caps and a British and Irish lion I just think he is really over rated and when he gets put under a bit of pressure he is crap. Imo anyway.

    And yet he's been selected for 3 Lions tours, has won a Grandslam, 2 HCs and the Magners League. :huh:

    lads give him a break, it must take some amount of spirit to keep getting back up after every single knock. he's a legend

    Takes more spirit to actually get on your feet and learn how to tackle...as all tackling is is a combination of courage and good technique..

    He lacks both though. At least he puts his body in the way! Being a speedbump is better than nothing at all.

    I must say the worst defensive flyhalf was that fella Pez who played for Italy a few years ago. He wasn't even on being a speedbump!

    Charlie Hodgson got munched by Nonu, everyone slated him, he went away improved his technique, and now he's more than capable in defence.
    Why couldn't O'Gara do the same? ;)

    Because he's an egotisical, selfish jackass who refuses to accept any sort of criticism and will throw a tantrum if not selected.
