WHAT a difference a hat makes! Our rugby stars, right, lined out incognito yesterday as they dressed down ahead of today's clash with England.

Players headed out of Irish camp HQ at the Shelbourne Hotel in a variety of casual clothing -- nearly all wearing 'don't-recognise-me' hats.

Munster's Ronan O'Gara, left, wasn't the hardest to recognise under his country-squire, tweed flat cap, but his sporting apparel and Adidas hoodie were the biggest clues to fans.

Jonathan Sexton, centre, was easily spotted as he strolled along St Stephen's Green, his features framed by a tightly ribbed beanie hat.

Winger Tommy Bowe, right, was able to blend into the crowds as he swapped sporty clothes for denim jeans, quilted jacket and slouchy beanie.
