Protesters un-happy with Warren Gatland’s decision to drop Irish rugby legend Brian O’Driscoll from the last Lions test match, are planning a Pro-BOD protest march this Friday.
The angry fans are disgusted with the decision by the New Zealand native to drop O’Driscoll and said their plans to protest was made certain when they found out current Irish captain Jamie Heaslip has been dropped too.
Both players have not been included in the match day squads and will watch the gvame from the stands.
Commenting to us earlier, Barry Farrell-McNamara, organiser of the march said:
This is an absolute disgrace. We’re tired, we’re angry and we’ve had enough. We’re not standing for this any more and are not going to have BOD treated like this. Gatland is making a very wrong decision – he should be at least on the bench, so we can have O’Driscoll on-demand if needs be.
Barry usually would have been on the Lions tour himself, but is in so much negative equity this year that he was barely able to afford his Leinster season ticket.
The Pro-BOD march will start at Lansdowne Road and make it’s way to O’Connell street, where the New Zealand Embassy is situated. The march will start at 4:30 in order to cause as much disruption and impact as possibly.
The Pro-BOD movement in Ireland is said to have a massive following and organisers are claiming that up to 50,000 supporters are expected to take to the streets to voice their protest at the decision.
