Microphone Picks Up Peter O’Mahony’s ‘Lovely’ Words Aimed At French Opponent

“Muppet.”

Ireland got back to business at the Aviva Stadium yesterday, putting France to the sword with an impressive bonus-point win in Dublin.

Tries from captain Rory Best, Johnny Sexton, replacement Jack Conan and Keith Earls ensured a 26-14 win, and means Ireland have an outside chance of retaining their Six Nations title against Wales next week if results go their way.

More importantly Ireland looked a lot more fired up yesterday. They were visibly charged and looked like a different team from the one that underperformed against Italy a fortnight ago.

One man however who always looks fired up is Munster captain Peter O’Mahony – sometimes a little too fired up! The flanker was caught calling England prop Kyle Sinckler a “stupid c*nt” in the opening round and now the tv cameras have picked up him sharing some lovely words with a French opponent yesterday.

The Munster captain was caught calling one of his opponents a “fucking muppet” following a fiery exchange. Great to see he has been practising his French!
