Fergus tackles a night on town with Hazel after defeat by Boks

RUGBY star Fergus McFadden opted to drown his sorrows after Ireland's bitter defeat to South Africa over the weekend.

They narrowly lost 12-16 to the Springboks in a tough match in the Aviva, and Fergus decided to have a quiet night out afterwards.

He was spotted hanging out in the VIP area of Lillie's Bordello alongside his model girlfriend Hazel O'Sullivan (together inset), where they were joined by single hunk and Fergus' Leinster and Ireland team-mate Rob Kearney.

Also in the celebrity haunt were Chelsea and Irish international Conor Clifford, Aussie rules hero Tadhg Kennelly and GAA star Bernard Brogan. Other revellers included club regular Guggi as well as Fair City star George McMahon. Meanwhile, at Buck's Townhouse, the afterparty for the Professional Footballers Association of Ireland was in full swing.
