The Best Thing We Shared

Peter O’Mahony went to great lengths to ensure that the roof on the Principality Stadium will be closed tomorrow night.

On The Record

It’s been brilliant. Robbie’s been in working individually with (physio) Tony McCarthy and then he has dropped in and out of our sessions. He’s taken the strikers for finishing sessions too and to have someone like Robbie telling an 18-year-old about movement or how to finish is frightening. It’s been unbelievable for us as a coaching staff. When you look at his record at international level I don’t think it will be truly recognised for what it is for years to come. It’s scary.
