Friday Funnies - Team mate questions with Donncha O'Callaghan

Friday Funnies - Team mate questions with Donncha O'Callaghan

Munster lock Donncha O’Callaghan is known to be quite a character so it’s no surprise that when asked to answer some random questions recently, he delivered. He accepted an award on the night too, and as you can see here, has quite a way with words.

The Lions tourist in 2005 and 2009 first made an appearance on RD many years back after he attempted to play rugby without any shorts on. In a 2006 match against the Cardiff Blues they were ripped off, so rather than waste time trying to replace them, he simply joined the lineout.

“You can’t play like this,” said the none too amused French referee, forcing him to get a new pair.

O’Callaghan has played rugby for Munster for an incredible 16 seasons. Now 35-years-old, he will start off the bench in tonight’s crunch RaboDirect PRO12 semi final against Glasgow Warriors.

With 94 caps for his country and other locks looking like they might prevent him from reaching the cherished 100 caps, he has said that he hopes if it happens, it’s under the right circumstances.

“It’s competitive as ever,” he told Thescore.ie in a frank chat earlier this week.

“If you’re in the team, you want to be there on merit. The more competitive it is for positions, the better it is for everybody. You know that if a guy is picked ahead of you, and is a quality fella, that he has to produce the goods. That can only be good for the team,” he added.

In this entertaining chat O’Callaghan speaks about those team mates and things like who the best dancer is, who would be last man standing on a night out, and who has the worst dress sense. “A lot of our younger guys are starting to dress like One Direction, and I don’t know where that’s at.”

O’Callaghan was attending the Hibernia College IRUPA Rugby Players’ Awards 2014, where he was presented with the Boardmatch Contribution to Society award
