Watch: Mike McCarthy Gets Overexcited Revealing What Gear The Irish Rugby Team Get


“It’s like christmas all over again”

You will not see a happier man today. Irish Rugby TV caught up with Leinster and Ireland second-row Mike McCarthy today to find out exactly what the kind of gear an International Six Nations player gets at the beginning of the tournament.

“T-shirt, polo shirt, boot-bag… Oh, ohhh, boot-bag, boot-bag. I love boot-bags.” Safe to say Mike McCarthy was pretty impressed with the haul as he giddily goes through what they’ve been given. He absolutely loves boot bags incase you were wondering.
