Keith Wood Gleefully Recalls The Time BOD Stuck Up For Ronan O'Gara And Boxed Austin Healey

Keith Wood Gleefully Recalls The Time BOD Stuck Up For Ronan O'Gara And Boxed Austin Healey

A truly excellent moment of radio went down on 'Off The Ball' tonight live from Limerick.

Dwayne Peel was a guest along with Keith Wood and Brian O'Driscoll as the popular sports show took to the road, and a question from the audience sparked a fantastic storytelling session between the two Irish legends.

Every Irish sports fan knows that Austin Healey is an insufferable bollocks, and when an audience member who visited 'A Question Of Sport' and heard from Matt Dawson of an encounter between Healey and O'Driscoll, he asked if the former Leinster star would elaborate.

With some coaxing from Keith Wood, he did just that.

What a great story.

Just when you think Brian O'Driscoll couldn't rise any higher in the opinions of Irish sports fans, we find out that he boxed the shite out of Austin Healey for being an arsehole to Ronan O'Gara.

Magnificent.

We had audio of the story from a Welsh perspective on today's edition of our daily sports podcast The Racket:
