Johnson reveals what really happened in Dublin

Possibly one of the highlights of the England 2003 6 Nations campaign, neigh of his career, Martin Johnson recounts the really happened in Dublin when he refused to move the England team to ensure the President of Ireland avoided going off the red carpet to shake hands with the Ireland team.

Was it a masterclass in cementing his teams authority and determination to win mental mind games before taking on the Irish…or something far more simple?

Enjoy this wonderful clip where Johnson explains in detail his thinking and how he found himself at the centre of a diplomatic incident.
