Ireland’s replacement hooker Damien Varley put on an impromptu performance at Rotorua Airport yesterday. Brian O’Driscoll posted the video on twitter, and said the following.
“We had a Maori lady play guitar and sing for us at Rotorua Airport as we boarded our flight to Dunedin. Damien Varley asked if she would lend him the guitar and immediately and impressively belted out a couple of Christy Moore numbers.
He was immediately fined for upstaging the lady! Denis Leamy is very disgruntled about being usurped having been our go-to man in the past for singing.
There’s only so many times you can listen to ‘Ride On’! Given Varley’s star turn, there is an undertaking to purchase a guitar with some of the fines’ money.”
