Du Preez on...
"Unbelievable, I have never played with anyone who thrives on pressure the way Ronan does."
"Carl Hayman and Adam Jones. The big men who have technique as well -- they are the hardest."
Favourite Irish pub
"Johnny Foxes -- I had a brilliant night there a few years ago."
Favourite Irish restaurant
"Chocolat, on O'Connell St in Limerick. Not as fancy as it sounds, the food is just really good."
"Braaiveiss -- barbecued red meat, a bit of salt and salad."
Best dressed team-mate
"Tomas O'Leary tries hard but can end up looking ridiculous. I would say (Peter) Stringer, he always looks pretty slick."
Team-mate you'd least
like to get in a fight with
"Paul O'Connell, no contest."
Team-mate you'd want
on your quiz team
"Damien Varley, a pretty intelligent guy, he keeps up on stuff."
Best moments in red
"Beating Australia and Toulon here last year; beating Perpignan away and winning the Magners League final against Leinster."
