I'LL MISS THE SOCIAL SIDE WHEN BRIAN QUITS – AMY

THIS year, the curtain will drop on the career of the greatest Irish rugby player of our time as Brian O'Driscoll hangs up his green shirt.

And actress Amy Huberman, wife of rugby legend BOD, said that the high-profile couple will miss plenty of aspects of the rugby lifestyle, both on and off the pitch.

The mum-of-one said she will miss the social gatherings, the highs of great wins and the friends she has made along the way.

The Cabinteely native has become close friends with many of those involved in the Irish rugby set-up, including model and businesswoman Aoife Cogan, wife of Leinster star Gordon D'Arcy.

"I'll miss it," the petite actress told the Herald at the Bord Gais Energy Student Theatre Awards. "I have made great friends that I'll keep, but there's a social element as well. I have had great trips abroad to Australia, New Zealand and Italy and France and all that. I have become very close to some of the girls so I'll be like 'don't forget us'."

Amy (34) said that she will continue to support the Leinster team once Brian puts away his playing boots for good.

"I know he'll miss it too. It usually had our weekend social life sorted out, but he'll be fine," she said.
