Amy has 'Stag' do before Brian says 'au revoir'

AS Brian O'Driscoll and the Irish squad touched down in Paris ahead of the Six Nations match against France, Amy Huberman was walking the red carpet in London's Leicester Square at the British premiere of 'The Stag'.

It was a whirlwind trip for Huberman who will return to Ireland today, then to Paris for a traditional pre-match lunch with fellow WAGs tomorrow afternoon.

Meanwhile, back in Dublin, fans applauded as Joe Schmidt's squad boarded their flight to Paris yesterday evening – but there was no special welcome when they arrived in France, with each player carrying their own bag out of arrivals.

O'Driscoll will play his final game in the green of Ireland at the Stade de France tomorrow evening, with his parents Frank and Ger and wife Amy cheering him on from the stands.

It'll be a hectic weekend for Huberman but she was determined to attend the UK premiere, having missed the Irish opening last month.

"Having Amy here is amazing," 'Stag' producer Rebecca O'Flanagan told the Irish Independent.

"We really missed her at the Irish premiere so it makes things a bit more special. It feels like we're all on a school tour.

"This is the last big party before we head over to America."

Next month, the movie will be screened at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
