Irish rugby legend Ronan O'Gara inducted into World Rugby Hall of Fame

FORMER Ireland and Munster fly-half Ronan O'Gara has become the 12th Irishman to be inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame.

In a ceremony in London this afternoon, O’Gara spoke about his incredible career in the sport as he became the 139th inductee into the World Rugby Hall of Fame.

Since retiring, he spent four and a half seasons as a coach with Racing 92 before joining the Canterbury Crusaders in New Zealand as an assistant coach last January.

Prior to retirement, O’Gara won 130 international caps - 128 for Ireland and two for the Lions.

He also won two Heineken Cups with Munster and toured with the Lions three times.

A highlight of O'Gara's career was when he spectacularly scored the winning drop goal to deliver Ireland's first Grand Slam in 61 years in 2009.
