AUDIO: Tomas O'Leary Doesn't Think A Whole Lot Of Scottish Rugby These Days...
By Conor Neville

Tomas O'Leary pulled off the notoriously difficult feat of being almost as quotable as Ronan O'Gara on tonight's Off the Ball roadshow in Cork.

O'Leary, back in Munster after a spell at London Irish, was asked about being omitted from the 2011 World Cup squad, having been the first-choice no.9 prior to the warm-up games. Was the pain still raw?

Yeah, it was tough at the time. But, four years later, well over it. Plus, the boys were useless at the World Cup as well.

Ireland's 2011 World Cup campaign wasn't the only useless thing which crossed O'Leary's mind tonight. Ger Gilroy pointed out that O'Leary had started every game of the 2009 Grand Slam year, save for one. O'Leary interjected...

Yeah, against the Scots. Sure, they were useless anyway...

Obviously, we should be wary about how the Scots may react if this reaches their media (you may recall how Liam Toland's comments about Scotland's meekness were referenced in the build-up to the 2013 sucker punch) but frankly we like hearing rugby players making such delightfully unguarded remarks. Rare from professionals.

The comment comes about a quarter of the way through it....
