O'Gara letter to Editor: Why I refuse to be scapegoated by Kevin Myers
Published 19/02/2010 | 05:00
I HAVE to reply to the scurrilous article by Kevin Myers (Irish Independent, February 16), although it takes a lot for me, as a professional sportsman, to react to a newspaper article.
However, rugby is my place of work and whether it's with Munster, Ireland or the Lions, I take my work very seriously.
I do not accept being castigated by a journalist who I suspect knows nothing about rugby but somehow appoints himself as an 'expert'. This falls well short of the journalistic standards I would expect from one of our main national newspapers.
