An Irish reporter was taken to task by Russell Crowe at the Irish premiere of his new film 'Noah'.

Niamh Walsh asked Crowe if his rugby team would ever play against Ireland, prompting Crowe to explain that the South Sydney Rabbitohs play rugby league and not rugby union.

Undeterred, the Mail Online reporter asks the actor again, to which he irately responds "do you understand what I'm saying? They're different sports."

Crowe is then informed that he also makes mistakes, in particular when he referred to Ireland as part of the UK.

The video has been uploaded twice, once by ClickTV with the title 'Russell Crowe Schools Reporter at the Dublin Premiere' and once by Evoke.ie with the title ' Russell Crowe Being Rude to Reporter at Dublin Noah Premiere'.

Evoke.ie described Crowe as "very mean" and "pretty condescending to our Niamh", claiming she was "unkindly schooled" for "not knowing" about the "South City Dragons" adding "but who in Ireland does?"

As the South City Dragons don't exist, probably nobody.

Watch Crowe's reaction below.
