Brian O'Driscoll expertly trolls Off The Ball colleague Colm Parkinson over Twitter 'threat'
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
