THEY are well known for their skills with a rugby ball but Simon Zebo and Paddy Jackson can also rap – sort of.

The Ireland international rugby players have become surprise stars in an online video in which they lip-sync to 'Otis' by Jay-Z and Kanye West.

The video, titled 'Paddy Jackson And Simon Zebo Rappin' It Up', was recorded beside the pool at a hotel in Houston, Texas. The players were apparently bored on a down day before the match between Ireland and America last week.

Jackson takes on the role of Jay-Z while Zebo lip-syncs to Kanye West's parts. At the end Jackson jumps into the pool and plays dead. He is then followed by Zebo.

Last year a video of Jackson performing 'JCB Song' by Nizlopi was also uploaded to YouTube.
