Rugby? I'd rather watch Liverpool says Gordon's rugger hugger Aoife

DON'T expect to see Aoife Cogan joining fellow Wags Amy Huberman or Susie Amy at Saturday's crunch Six Nations clash with Wales -- she'd sooner be at home watching Liverpool.

The new woman on Gordon D'Arcy's arm has revealed to the Herald that rugby isn't her thing, and soccer really gets her pulse racing.

In fact, the only event that matters to Dubliner Aoife is tomorrow night's VIP style awards.

"I'm not really a huge rugby fan," she told the Herald. "I know a bit about it because my brother used to play in school.

Vying

"I'd be more of a Liverpool fan, to be honest. I do watch all the games on TV though."

The Assets beauty will support Gordon tomorrow night when he goes head to head with some of the best-known men in the country for the title of Best Dressed Male at the Peter Mark VIP Style Awards.

Gordon is the only rugby player to be nominated in the category and will be vying for the title against a number of well-known TV stars including Ryan Tubridy, Daithi O Se, Ireland AM contributor Noel Cunningham, restaurateur Nick Munier and Xpose's Sean Munsanje.

"That's right he is up for the Style Award," Aoife told the Herald. "I'll be cheering him on of course.

"I prefer to keep that (their blossoming romance) to myself to be honest but it's all going well," she explained.

The rugby player has yet to decide whether he will make an appearance at the glitzy bash, given that he and his Irish teammates are due to take on Wales at the Six Nations clash at Croke Park on Saturday afternoon.

The statuesque beauty is not too concerned about having a date for the event however, as she and fellow models Sarah McGovern and Ruth Griffin are planning a girls' night out.

"I'm very excited about the night, it's always a good chance for a catch up with the girls," she said.

"Ruth Griffin is coming from Limerick for it so I can't wait to have a proper night out with her.

"I've already got the guna. I borrowed it from Covet, which is an amazing shop.

"I believe there's no point in paying a fortune for a dress that you're only going to get one wear out of so it makes sense to rent it," she added.

Meanwhile, diplomatic Aoife was keen not to add her voice to the ongoing saga between top models Glenda Gilson and Rosanna Davison after the now infamous 'Ranelagh Rumble' which took place the weekend before last.

The pair had been due to come face to face at the event for the first time since Glenda's ex Johnny Ronan whisked Rosanna off to Marrakesh, but the former Miss World has now said she won't be attending the awards.

Dublin model Aoife, who is friendly with both girls, said that it wouldn't be right for her to comment on the issue.

The model was speaking yesterday at the launch of fashion label, Karen Millen's Spring/Summer 2010 collection at Bentley's on St Stephen's Green.
