Ireland flanker Sean O’Brien is never afraid to speak his mind – this time targetting Lawrence Dallaglio after the former England man said Leinster possess the strength in depth of the All Blacks.
“Pure sh*te!,” he said.
“It’s not realistic. How can you compare an All Black international team to a provincial team?
“He should know better, shouldn’t he? That’s an outside perception. I can honestly say that is not our perception.
“We’re trying to create an environment and a set-up that is ours.
“We would never compare ourselves to the All Blacks, now or in the future, in any respect.
“I wouldn’t analyse it at all as a compliment. That’s someone else’s thing. It’s not coming from us.
“I wouldn’t be losing any sleep over it.”
