The utility back is known for slagging his team-mates online and it was Sean Cronin's turn to get a ribbing after Ireland's huge win over Italy on Saturday. The hooker played well off the bench, making a number of bursts through the Italian defence and he even stole over for a try.

But rather than focus on his many positives contributions, McFadden honed in on an unfortunate photo of his Leinster and Ireland team-mate.

He didn't get much support online either, with current and former team-mates and even the IRFU having a little fun at Cronin's expense.
