The naughty language of Dane Coles which most fans missed during last year's Ireland defeat

Back in November 2021 All Blacks hooker Dane Coles got away with using some foul language in front of the referee during a Test match in Dublin.

The 35-year-old lost patience with Ireland playmaker Johnny Sexton and after waving him away Coles said to referee Luke Pearce “Fu*k he’s a mouthy c*nt isn’t he?”.

In response Pearce told the hooker to be careful whereas other officials may not have taken kindly to this kind of language.

Ireland used this edgy tension to their advantage and took a 29-20 win over New Zealand in front of a raucous crowd in Dublin. Full match highlights are available below:

Following full time, try-scorer James Lowe let loose in his post match interview, saying: “The 29-year-old was interviewed after full time and hit out at some critics who’ve previously questioned his defensive ability.

“You bollockses always talk about my defence, and I got up and I worked Rieko (Ioane), and we got the turnover from it,” said Lowe.

“I don’t care about that first try, I don’t care about anything. It was that moment, to do everything I’ve been doing in the last six or seven months in the 70 minutes, that’s what I’m happy about.”

Lowe played four times for the Mãori All Blacks and represented the Chiefs more than 50 times before making the switch to Ireland and he also discussed the surreal nature of playing against New Zealand.

Lowe added: “Ever since I was a kid I had dreamt of being an All Black, that’s just a very Kiwi thing to do. I gave up that dream, I wasn’t quite good enough when I was at my best almost.

“To be able to come over here and put in a performance against the best team in the world, they are the standard-bearers, words can’t describe it. To hear my native country’s national anthem, to stand in front of the Haka, it’s a childhood dream.”
