Ireland captain Peter O’Mahony mistakes England star for 38-year-old retired player

Ireland captain Peter O’Mahony looks to have his sole focus on his side, given that he forgot the name of England’s Alex Mitchell in today’s pre-match press conference. O’Mahony was asked how Ireland were prepared to take on the England players, and named ‘Dickson’ amongst those that his side were preparing for this week.

“We’ve come across each other a fair bit… we (Munster) had Northampton, Leinster had Leicester Tigers, and Connacht had Saracens. I know we don’t play each other in our domestic leagues but between all our provinces, we come across a good chunk of the lads. That feedback comes in.

“The Leinster lads have spoken about the players that they have come across the last couple of weeks. We’ve spoken about the likes of Dickson at nine, who did a lot of damage to us at Thomond Park.

“I know we don’t play in the same leagues but you certainly get a handle from our European stuff and we do a lot of video on the English players and the last few weeks, we’ve had to study them. You get your ins here and there.”

O’Mahony looked to have gotten Mitchell mixed up with former England and Northampton scrum-half Lee Dickson. It was a bizarre mishap from the back-row, given the fact that the 18-capped scrum-half had not played for England since 2014.
