Holly flies the flag but Amy and Aoife miss out on big clash

CATWALK beauty Holly Carpenter will line out at Twickenham for Ireland's crucial rugby clash this weekend.

However, fellow model Aoife Cogan and actress Amy Huberman will not be in the UK to watch their other halves take on England in this weekend's Triple Crown decider.

Amy, who is married to rugby legend Brian O'Driscoll, and Aoife, the wife of Leinster and Irish centre Gordon D'Arcy, cannot attend the game because of various work commitments.


It will be left to Dublin native Holly (22) to fly the flag when she jets over to watch her boyfriend Cian Healy line out against their English rivals.

The Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model finalist recently celebrated her two-year anniversary with her man and has been in the stands for each of his Six Nations encounters so far this season.

Model-turned-businesswomen Aoife (30) will have to watch Gordon on TV because she is too busy with the couple's new fitness studio, Form School.

The husband and wife team set up the Pilates and yoga hub in Dublin last year and it already boasts celebrity clients including Gordon's Leinster team mate Rob Kearney.

Actress and author Amy Huberman will also miss Brian's clash once again as she is abroad working.

Amy (33) is believed to be in Los Angeles where she is undertaking a secret work project and is not expected back home in time to attend the Irish premiere of her comedy film, The Stag, on Sunday.

However, reports that she is shooting a pilot in New York have been denied.

"Amy is in America, but she is not in New York," a friend of the actress told the Herald. "She is there for work and sadly she won't be back in time to attend the rugby game in England."

The busy actress, who said she wants to work for another few years before having a second baby, was also abroad for Ireland's recent victory over Scotland.
