Ireland's Damien Varley provides some airport entertainment

Ireland's replacement hooker Damien Varley put on an impromptu performance at Rotorua Airport yesterday. Brian O'Driscoll posted the video on twitter, and said the following.

"We had a Maori lady play guitar and sing for us at Rotorua Airport as we boarded our flight to Dunedin. Damien Varley asked if she would lend him the guitar and immediately and impressively belted out a couple of Christy Moore numbers.

He was immediately fined for upstaging the lady! Denis Leamy is very disgruntled about being usurped having been our go-to man in the past for singing.

There's only so many times you can listen to 'Ride On'! Given Varley's star turn, there is an undertaking to purchase a guitar with some of the fines' money."

by the team I reckon, seing as they're talking about buying a guitar with the proceeds. Like the bit where he steps on the money!

Perhaps he'll sing the lineout calls to distract the opposition

on tour,a rugby team usually sets up its own 'court' as a joke,and they fine people for various funny indiscretions,in this instance,for upstaging the maori woman
