Friday Funnies - A day in the life of Paul O'Connell

Friday Funnies - A day in the life of Paul O'Connell

With the British and Irish Lions tour of South Africa only a few months away, there's been plenty of talk about who will lead the side to battle against the world champions. For many, Paul OConnell is the man for the job.

OConnell is as hard as they come, an inspiring leader, and has been at the helm of what is one of the most successful clubs in the Northern Hemisphere currently, Munster.

With his country Ireland, hes become one of the most respected locks in world rugby, and as is seen in this first clip, is a rousing figure.

This weeks funny comes from a skit that was performed by an Irish National radio Station Today FM.

The first clip seen here comes from a documentary and shows OConnells manic aggression psyche-up talk before Irelands match against France in 2007. It gives you the background knowledge needed for the second clip.

After watching the first, hit play on the second and youll hear the radio station doing their take on a Day in the life of Paul OConnell. Eddie OSullivan and Brian ODriscoll feature in the clip too, although OConnell doesnt have much time for BOD.

Have a good weekend, and enjoy the Six Nations, Super 14, Guinness Premiership, Top 14, Magners League... and whatever else is going on. It's a great time to be a rugby fan.

Manic Aggression, not Magic. And in the locker room not every1 reponds to that kind of motovation, so not every1 is involved

hands down, Paul is the captain for the Lions... no doubt that he is one of the best, if not the best, lock in the world.

i tink the repetition coupled with the indifference of the rest of the dressing room adds to the humour in the lack of humour in the repetition.That makes complete sense. I swear.he could b a gd Irish and British Lions captain all right

Funny to hear POC and EOS in this video, and EOS in the Lions tour video.Compare that to the calm, yet earnest speak from McGeechan. From the videos I saw, Geech never cursed. Something to be said for a man who can express himself without using profanity as a conjuction or mental pause.The missing clip:POC goes to a massage parlour, and asks the girl:"Did you extract every last drop of...."Bitching aside, I think POC is indeed an automatic choice for the Lions 2nd row, paired with AW Jones (Jason White the sub on a First XXII).

I have to correct you there, while Geech is definitely calm he doesn't hesitate to throw around f-bombs like their going out of style.That said, in his deeper talks there's little swearing but he's far from an angel in that regard

Decent Lions team...although Delon Armitage should definitely make the flight down under as well, he's got the sort of pace needed to threaten plus hes on fire at the moment.
