Has Zebo met his match with Spanish senorita?

COULD one of Ireland's rugby stars, Simon Zebo, finally be a taken man?

It certainly seems so going by his loved-up tweets to Madrid model and law student, Elvira Fernandez (21).

The model confessed her love for the rugby ace publicly on twitter, posting a number of photos of the pair in Madrid. She also spoke eagerly of when they would be reunited.

In response yesterday, Zebo tweeted a public "see you tomorrow" message to her which attracted the attention of former Irish and Munster star Jerry Flannery who called it a "class tweet" and advised him to try texting his love interest in future.


The Munster wing, who is currently nursing a foot injury, has maintained contact with the Spanish beauty for the last month on twitter.

Both Fernandez and Zebo have posted snaps of themselves together on their twitter accounts with the rugby player referring to her as his "senorita".

Earlier in the week Zebo was rebuked by 2FM DJ JJ Hartigan for his online interaction with his girlfriend.

The DJ accused Zebo of 'poking' his model girlfriend Shauna Lindsay on Facebook.

Hartigan advised that the rugby star "should concentrate on poking his own bird and leave poking mine to me."
