Irish Captain Brian O'Driscoll.

In an unprecedented move, Irish Rugby Captain Brian O'Driscoll failed to take his team out for the second half of the Test Match against the All Blacks.

The All Blacks who sprinted out onto Coyne Park and took up their positions,waited in vain for the Irish to appear.

After the referee Mark Lawrence had checked and confirmed that the Irish team wasnt coming out, he allowed the All Blacks to play with themselves for 10 minutes,scoring a few tries, then awarded the match to New Zealand

O'Driscoll was reported to be incensed with match referee Mark Lawrence's decision to award a penalty try to the All Blacks just before half-time, when the game was tied up at 3 all.

Irish winger Tommy Bowe was adjudged to have deliberately knocked away the ball from All Black skipper Richie McCaw when he was in the act of scoring a try. Referee Lawrence awarded the penalty try and yellow-carded Bowe to the sin-bin for 10 minutes.

O'Driscoll who hasnt stopped whingeing about the time he had his collar-bone broken whilst playing for the British Lions against New Zealand,decided enough was enough and in a decision reminiscent of the Pakistan Cricket team's protest against Umpire Daryl Hare, he took the team out of the stadium.

The Irish tean then adjourned to Dublin's McGinty's Tavern and watched the remainder of their own game on the big screen in the Sports Bar.
