The Brotherhood of the front row - WIN with Bushmills Whiskey

The Brotherhood of the front row - WIN with Bushmills Whiskey

Phil Vickery, Keith Wood, and Tim Payne got together with Bushmills Brothers recently to provide some excellent insight into the brotherhood of the front row. Check out these amusing videos and then enter the great competition below.

No introduction needed, the reputations of these front rowers speak for themselves. Each of them having played hours of professional rugby for their countries, their uncompromising approach to the game has earned them many caps and the respect of fans worldwide.

Along the way theyve experienced wonderful bits of camaraderie, both on and off the field, so we get to hear them talk about that element of the sport as the banter flows and they sip on a glass or two of Bushmills' finest. "You have to be slightly deranged to play in the front row," says Phil.

The guys then take part in a few challenges which includes tossing ice cubes into a glass and a rugby ball keepy-uppy event that shows exactly why Keith Wood was at the top of his game for so long his competitive edge.

Its a good laugh so whether youre a front rower or not, you should enjoy the three videos. You can also WIN one of two exclusive bottles thanks to our friends at Bushmills Brothers. Check out their Facebook Page , where youll find more info about their whiskey and more great stories of brotherhood. To enter the competition, make sure you watch the videos first! Question below.

I'm sure some will find the drink link a bit off putting, but it is a good laugh.

(off putting things often are at the time)

Last one is especially funny really. Good cringe factor moments too.

the players are asked at some point "what are each others strenghs?"
I have an answer to that:
- Keith Wood is a legend
- Phil Vickery is world champion
- Tim Payne is one of the best loose head prop currently

Hi RD - time allowing any chance of a tribute to Vickery? Utter legend and a honest individual as regards his own limitations...Shame about his retiring through neck injury.

Good vid - enjoyed it and about time the big fellas got a chance to show off ;)

Tried the ice-cube in the glass thing.
Spread ice all over the kitchen floor.
Broke two whisky glasses in the process.
GF not thrilled by the experiment.
Apparently I'll sleep on the couch tonight.

Will try again tomorrow. Ice-cubes can't win.
