Never a man to take a backfoot on the pitch, Ireland and Leinster rugby star Cian Healy was stopped in his tracks by a snake on holidays.
The fearsome prop is on a well deserved break at the end of the rugby season, but was not expecting to come into such close quarters with a snake.
The 26 year-old admitted to getting a scare from the unwelcome guest at the holiday villa, while his girlfriend Holly Carpenter was also worried by the snake.
“Hey that wires moving... That's a SNAKE!! Wtf r we supposed to do! He's hiding behind a bookshelf now,” she tweeted.
Healy was art of the Irish squad that claimed a 2-0 Series victory in Argentina, with coach Joe Schmidt leaving Healy rest after the end of Leinster’s campaign.
