Du Preez on...

Ronan O'Gara

"Unbelievable, I have never played with anyone who thrives on pressure the way Ronan does."

Toughest opponents

"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."

Favourite Meal

"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."
