Todays Examiner, tribute from Rory Best, a class act:
the latest Munster retiree was also praised by Ulster captain and Ireland hooker Rory Best.
"We sorely missed him at the World Cup, on and off the field. Wherever you were going, you’d always give him a ring.
"When I first came into the Ireland squad, he was there at the heart and soul of it. Even a year ago, when you looked at him you thought he was going to go on forever. It just goes to show you’re only one big injury away from never playing again. At the end of the Six Nations, Wally was in flying form and probably one of Ireland’s best players.
"Playing against him, he was a nightmare from five metres out, once those big legs got going, you were in trouble. Playing against Rog, your big game plan is to try and pressure him but he’d dump it off to Wally and next thing you’re five metres behind the gain line because he was an absolute freak."
