ROG gets advice from The Claw when stuck in airport

Ronan O’Gara found himself stranded in Birmingham airport yesterday after Racing Metro’s victory in the Champions Cup on Saturday, when he left his passport in the team hotel.

The Ireland legend got a constructive suggestion from Peter Clohessy as to how to pass the five hour wait until the next flight back to Paris.

But O’Gara offered a very good reason for not taking his fellow Munster man’s advice.

Another rugby legend (ahem) then got involved in the conversation to second Clohessy’s suggestion.

Hope you stayed strong Ronan!
