All ROG wants for Christmas is...to buy his gifts

RUGBY ace Ronan O'Gara may have just reached a milestone by playing his 100th match in the Heineken Cup, but he still has one more battle to face this month -- getting through his Christmas list.

Speaking to the Diary, Ronan revealed that he has had no time to shop for his family this festive season but will be hitting the shops next week.

"I haven't got my presents sorted yet, I have a big list though. Once I get next weekend out of the way then I can do my Christmas shopping.

"I have worked with Newbridge for years and will be getting some presents for Christmas from them, I have to wait and see what they have in store for me this year, but I think my wife is more excited about that then I am," he said.

He added that even though he might be hitting the pitch for a match on Stephen's Day, it won't stop him from enjoying Christmas.
