Referee effectively removes Ireland star as captain after constant whingeing

‘I’ve asked him several times, and he’s not listening’

After becoming irritated with the referee inside the first fifteen minutes of Leinster’s Champions Cup victory against La Rochelle, James Ryan, the standout player for Leinster, was taken out of the game as captain.

The Ireland lock was selected as co-captain for the match alongside fellow international Garry Ringrose, but Matthew Carley relieved him of the responsibility after becoming tired of his incessant complaining.

Jordan Lamour’s early score had put the Irish in front 3–7, but almost every time a penalty was given up, Ryan had been in Carley’s ear.Register for our newsletter here to receive the most recent Welsh rugby news.

And Carley dealt with Ryan’s complaining quickly rather than letting it go unanswered. For the duration of the match at the Stade Marcel Deflandre, he addressed Ringrose rather than the 27-year-old.

He said to Ringrose, “I’ve asked him several times, and he’s not listening.” “He talks to me during every penalty. He’s practically asking for a captain’s recommendation now, but I told him no. We will now collaborate.”
