In his Irish Examiner column today, Ronan O'Gara expanded on the great importance of the Irish squad's 'Social Committee' over the next two months.
He didn't go so far as to name the members of the committee nor how one goes about getting elected on to it, but did reference a few 'stone-mad beauties' whose personalities make them an ideal fit for such a position.
Sean O'Brien, as we've seen from our own farming quiz when he was ruthlessly harsh when it came to adjudicating upon Jordi Murphy's answers, is an obvious fit. Luke Fitzgerald is perhaps more surprising.
There are a lot of characters, though in that regard Fergus McFadden and Andrew Trimble are a miss, but in terms of absolutely cracked, stone-mad beauties, you’ve got Sean O’Brien and Luke Fitzgerald — that guy doesn’t live on this planet at all. Sean Cronin is tapped and sure even Paulie’s a bit tapped in his own inimitable way.
Elsewhere, he confirmed that rugby teams adhere to some ancient customs while on tour. The two youngest players will be responsible for cleaning the bus, four or five will be in charge of the music, three or four will sit on the clothing committee, and another clique will be charged with keeping the team room clean.
