Ronan O'Gara hails 'special' Munster fly-half Joey Carbery
Former Ireland fly-half Ronan O'Gara has hailed Joey Carbery's two-try performance against Gloucester on Friday night as 'special'.
Carbery crossed the line in both the first-half and second-half in a 41-15 rout of Gloucester at Kingsholm.
Johan van Graan's side ran in five tries to two to cap off a remarkable win away from home with Carbery winning the man of the match award.
Simply stunning JC.. capacity to scan on the run and execute belongs to very few..#Special

"I think he's probably better than Sexton, and if he could start for Ireland against England in that first Six Nations game, that would be perfect"

Carbery scored 26 points on the night and was happy with how his team fared.
"I'm obviously delighted but what makes me more happy is the scoreboard," said Carbery.
"We worked hard during the week and we put a few things into place and we were just so happy that we could come out and do it tonight.
"It's a huge credit to the coaches and the team for how we prepared for this."
Meanwhile captain CJ Stander said that the halves partnership of Carbery and Conor Murray were good on the ball and that the performance was a product of their good training week.
"They score all the points," said Stander.
"They worked hard during the week and they support what we do as a forward pack. We work hard as a team and it's good to see that they were good on the ball."
