Jeremy Guscott says Ireland are a ‘one-trick horse’

Guscott goes all Martin McHugh on Ireland rugby team

Jeremy Guscott won’t have too many Irish rugby friends after these bizarre comments on the BBC earlier today.

The ex-England man wasn’t too impressed with Ireland despite our 100% record during the November series.

Speaking on the Beeb’s coverage today of Wales-South Africa and England-Australia he said that Ireland are very one dimensional under Joe Schmidt and he’s waiting to see more from the current Six Nations champions.

We think that someone may need to have a word with Guscott to just remind him of a few things.

We think that someone should be Paul O Connell.

Here’s the transcript of what Guscott said on the BBC earlier:


We think Guscott has mentioned at least three ‘tricks’ in his analysis and Irish fans seem pretty happy to be so called ‘one trick horses’ heading into the 2015 Six Nations and a World Cup year.
