WATCH: Ronan O’Gara takes on Dan Carter in a riveting game of rugby golf

Who’s your money on?

If you were patriotic and said Ronan O’Gara, then we hope you’re not a betting man or woman because the Munster and Ireland legend tasted defeat against probably the greatest out-half of all time.

But only just.

O’Gara and Carter went head to head in a charity version of a hybrid game (a game we’d very much like to experience for ourselves) in Dun Laoghaire earlier this month, utilising their kicking and passing skills in an effort to land a rugby ball in the ‘hole’ in as few shots as possible.

In the end, O’Gara was made to pay for his ball going out of bounds and registering a costly six on the second hole, with Carter prevailing by a shot after four holes.

Carter might have regained the bragging rights after the photo of the pair of them following Ireland’s victory over the All-Blacks in Chicago (see below), but we'll see who's laughing come round two at the Aviva on Saturday.

Congratulations Ireland. A long time coming but deserved the win tonight. Someone's happy & it's not me
