Former Ireland rugby player Shane Jennings gave the nation a good laugh tonight with his tongue-in-cheek answer to Matt Cooper's question following Ireland's heroic win over Les Blues.

Matt Cooper began by reminding the panel how confident France were ahead of the match.

"We were talking all week about how confident the French were... how they were going target Johnny Sexton two hundred per cent... they thought it was going to be different to the six nations".

He finished "I wonder how they're feeling now, Shane?"

With a cheeky smile, Jennings responded "do we care?"

The rest of the panel broke out into peals of laughter and took a good fifteen seconds to get the panel back on track.

Jennings added; "God love them, maybe they shouldn't talk so much".

Irish Twitter users have called the comment "the best comment of the Rugby World Cup so far" and "classic Jennings".
