Bod takes on 'Tullow Tank' on Twitter

Brian O'Driscoll and his Ireland teammate Sean O'Brien engaged in an unusual online Twitter exchange yesterday, attempting to embarrass one another by posting photos with funny taglines.

O'Driscoll started the conversation, by sharing a picture taken last week of O'Brien, known as the 'Tullow Tank', chatting to a group of women in the sea.

The caption included reference to the fact that O'Brien has a farm in Carlow. "So Ahh, how many acres do ye girls have?" it said.

The centre also tweeted a shot of his teammate posing beside cattle.

O'Brien then responded online with a series of pictures of 'Greased Lightning' BOD, wearing a leather jacket and long blonde hair.

Another showed the father of one topless in a bar in Auckland while on tour with Ireland in New Zealand in 2006.
