Rugby fans love giving 'constructive' criticism from the armchair or the bar stool but one fan wanted his suggestions to go right to the top and sent some place-kicking advice to Brian O'Driscoll to pass on.
The fans asks BOD to pass on his findings on kicking penalties and conversions from the wrong side for right-footed kickers to Jonny Sexton and Paddy Jackson after he bought his "first ever ball" and tried to kick a conversion with his right foot from the right side of the posts.
The fan drew a helpful diagram with the message: "I bought my first rugby ball ever to see how difficult it is. It was more difficult to kick right from right rather than right to left. So here is what I did(View the diagram below). Any breeze would be taken into account."
The fan said that that he/she aimed to miss purposely and aimed further away from the goals depending on the breeze.
Whether Ireland goal-kickers take the advice into account remains to be seen.
