WATCH: It Looks Like Joe Schmidt Officially Has A Teacher’s Pet

Isn’t that lovely.

Joe Schmidt and the Irish Rugby team arrived home last night after spending the week in Spain on a training camp.

The national side are set to take on France this day next week in their Six Nations opener, and head into the tournament as favourites alongside England.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

The head coach has some big decisions to make ahead of the trip to Paris, with a number of players impressing during the European window. One player though, who will definitely be in the starting line-up, is Leinster prop Tadhg Furlong.

If not for the fact that he’s arguably the best tighthead in the world right now, then definitely for this wonderful act of kindness towards the boss. Furlong is officially the teacher’s pet.
