The RTÉ ad for ROG: The Ronan O'Gara Documentary is absolutely brilliant

Mark the Munster man's doc down as one of the must-sees of the festive period.

Thursday 2nd January – stick it in the diary folks as that's the day that RTÉ will be airing the excellent looking ROG: The Ronan O'Gara Documentary.

The documentary is made by Dave Berry and Nathan Nugent, the same team who made the documentaries Reaching For Glory: Inside Irish Rugby , The Dubs and Ireland's Grand Slam Journey 2009 and, according to RTÉ, is "intense, unflinching, at times painfully honest - just like the man himself. This feature-length documentary provides unprecedented access to Ronan O'Gara's life - public and private - over the final four years of his playing career.

The film is a deeply personal chronicle of this dramatic period for one of Ireland's most compelling sporting stars. From losing his place as Ireland's rugby No 10 to his decision to retire and move to France as coach to Racing Métro 92, alongside former nemesis, Jonathan Sexton."

Plus it's got ROG's now iconic 2009 Grand Slam twirly-arm-thingy celebration that we all know and love so well.

We cannot wait:

ROG: The Ronan O'Gara Documentary will be aired on Thursday January 2nd on RTE ONE & RTE ONE HD at 9:30pm.
