Well if he played with 11 on his back he may be asked to dance like Gilroy.

Surely you must have seen him "slowing down opposition ball" - everybody's talking about it. Fekkked if I know how he does it mind. Still - that busted conk makes him look quite tough ( remember Lino (no, not Lion) Ventura?) and that must be worth a few points.

In fairness he would have actually played in that 'match' compared to the Counties Manukau game which also counted - basically the equivalent of Rory playing for Banbridge. Think he's playing for the Counties 'B' team this weekend which isn't included in the ban - so they do draw the line somewhere... I guess you could just ban players at the level the offence took place but they for something like gouging you'd want a complete ban so you'd need two levels.

British & Irish Lions: Sean O'Brien says team could have won 3-0 with better coaching

The British and Irish Lions could have whitewashed world champions New Zealand 3-0 had they been better coached, says flanker Sean O'Brien.

The Irishman started all three Tests of the 1-1 drawn series.

But he believes poor coaching prevented the Lions securing a historic victory.

"If we had a little more structure during the weeks, and more of an attack gameplan, driven way earlier in the tour, I think we could have won 3-0," O'Brien said.

"With the players we had, we should have won the series."

As well as criticising the preparation before the first and third Test matches by Warren Gatland and his staff, O'Brien was especially critical of attack coach Rob Howley.

The 30-year-old said the midfield pairing of Johnny Sexton and Owen Farrell were "running our attack shape" by the end of the tour.

"The coaches have a lot to answer for in terms of our attack rather than Johnny and Faz trying to drive it," said O'Brien.

"If I was being critical of any coach it would be the fact that I think Rob struggled with the group in terms of his attributes of trying to get stuff across whereas Johnny and Owen drove everything the second week, for instance, in our attack and had a better plan in place.

"So I don't know if it was people not buying into what he was about or whatever else.

"That's the hard thing about a Lions tour as well; getting everyone to listen to a coach that was probably set in his ways."

As well as assisting Gatland on the Lions tour, Howley works under the New Zealander in the Wales set-up.

Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend and Glasgow assistant Jason O'Halloran both turned down invitations to be part of Gatland's Lions staff, and O'Brien - who also toured in 2013 - says the best coaches must be recruited in four years' time.

"Coaching-wise they need to make sure they have the best coaches in the best positions - attack, defence, forwards, whatever it may be on a Lions tour," he said.

Speaking immediately after the drawn third Test in July, Gatland said: "Given the schedule, given how tough the tour was, to come to New Zealand and get a draw you've got to be proud of that."

The BBC has approached the Welsh Rugby Union for comment.

Acknowledging that his Lions days are over he can let rip with little fear of comeback.
