WATCH - Simon Zebo tweets video of his two-footed lunge at Joey Barton and his response was priceless
Munster and Ireland star Simon Zebo engaged in some light-hearted Twitter banter today with Burnley midfielder Joey Barton.
Rassie Erasmus' men are in recovery mode following their 32-7 demolition of Racing 92 at the weekend and took part in a game of soccer today to loosen up ahead of training.
Simon Zebo posted a video of himself almost taking a teammate out of it with a two-footed lunge and tweeted Barton saying: "Channeling my inner @Joey7Barton at training today,set the tone #MovedToGoalie #StraightRed"
Barton tweeted back with some tips for Munster's record tryscorer.
Good technique. Got to get ball or man big man. You got neither there! None shall pass. https://t.co/WjuzMkYDQS— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) January 9, 2017
"Good technique. Got to get ball or man big man. You got neither there! None shall pass," he wrote.
Both men had contrasting weekends with Zebo scoring his 50th Munster try against Racing and Barton being booked and booed at the Stadium of Light in the 0-0 draw with Sunderland in the FA Cup.
