I suppose you'd expect a Northern Irish loyalist to bow and scrape to the Irish president?

I accept his right not to show subservience to a foreign monarch.

No one was expecting him to bow and scrape, but to show at least a little respect - if not for a Head of State, then at least to an elder. Slouching there with his hands in his pockets... HM should have clipped him around the ear and told him to stand up straight! :p

Lets put the boot on the other foot.

A few years ago. Landsdowne Road, final match of the 6N and Ireland and England vying for honours.

Red carpet rolled out, Martin Johnson & co. make Mary Mac (who, incidentally, has the same status as her maj) walk off the red carpet and onto the pitch. Disrespectful or a tactical masterstroke? If that had happened at Twickers we'd still be hearing about it... :roll:

Maybe ROG had that in mind. Both as disrespectful as each other, in my opinion.

I had not heard of the previous incident but in my opinion both incidents were deplorable. Very discourteous and rude. If he felt that way he should have declined the invitation.

It's made worse by the fact that Irish rugby has never really been marred by the sectarian divide. Why would you be such a cock and do that? Ulster protestants have played alongside Catholics for the whole history of irish rugby with no upset.

Even his skipper, the Irish team captain, Brian O'Driscol's bubbled that he's being an overt tvvat here.

Speaking as someone who's folks are from 'The Bog', there's no need for it nowadays - just makes Ireland look like the backward-looking backwater it screams to get away from being perceived as.

HMQ isn't Cromwell, O'Gara, ya soft sod. Grow up.
