Audio: Former Ireland International Wallace lavishes praise on Sean O’Brien ahead of Argentina clash

Paul was speaking to KCLR ahead of the encounter at the Aviva

Former Ireland Rugby International Paul Wallace says that Sean O’Brien has been the most outstanding back row player for Ireland in the professional era and should be a certainty to start despite the competition for places in the back-row.

The Tullow Tank makes his return to International action for the first time in a year this evening when Ireland host Argentina in the Aviva Stadium.

Speaking to KCLR, Paul says that Sean is at a different level.

“If he is fit he is World Class, I think he is a step ahead of every other back-row player that I have seen wear the Irish Jersey in the professional era.

“His fitness should be back, he has got a couple of games under his belt and yeah I am hoping he is a vital player again for Ireland,” he said.
