Russ Barwick is obviously a well-informed Aussie sports broadcaster sent to London to cover the games in his own rambunctious style. Yesterday he took on the topic of Anglo-Irish relations with such insight it's a shame he wasn't present at the Stormont negotiations. His main concern was that he couldn't understand why the Irish athletes weren't part of the GB team...
You have to hand it to him his arguments are sound
1. Only half of Ireland hates the British
2. The Irish play for the British Lions
3. They also play in the Six Nations
4. It's like a Hawaiian surfer claiming he is not from the United States.
Time to send Billy Walsh around..
