Ireland rugby legend Brian O'Driscoll got one over on his colleague for Newstalk's Off The Ball this evening on Twitter.
Last weekend, Laois forward Garry Walsh sent a rather threatening tweet to Parkinson after the former Laois footballer questioned the selection policy of their new manager Mick Lillis. Here's how the exchange transpired:
4 Emo lads and 3 Ballylinan lads on the Laois team. New selectors this year from these clubs. Gas— Colm Parkinson (@Woolberto) January 3, 2016
@Woolberto for ur own health & safety don't mention Ballylinan in a tweet ever again cheers— Gary Walsh (@PsychoWalsh) January 3, 2016
@PsychoWalsh is that a direct threat from you?— Colm Parkinson (@Woolberto) January 3, 2016
After the announcement today that Andy Farrell would become Ireland's new defence coach after the Six Nations concludes, Brian O'Driscoll sent a tweet greeting the news.
When Parkinson questioned his excitement, BOD put him in his place brilliantly. See below:
So Andy Farrell new @IrishRugby defence coach! Decent business that. Very good coach and motivator. Expect line speed & great kick chase.— Brian O'Driscoll (@BrianODriscoll) January 6, 2016
