Paul O'Connell and Jamie Cudmore recreate famous punch-up in brilliant mannequin challenge

The best of enemies.

Paul O'Connell and Jamie Cudmore are two of the most uncompromising second rows to ever play the game, so it is no great surprise that the duo clashed furiously on the pitch when they went head-to-head during their playing days.

They famously traded punches in a heated Munster vs Clermont clash at Thomond Park in 2008, with the Canadian seeing red after the incident. They have since settled their differences and seem to have a good relationship now, as evidenced by the bit of fun they had at the Aviva Stadium this evening.

O'Connell and Cudmore were part of the Sky coverage of Ireland's game with Canada, and agreed to recreate their famous fight in a brilliant mannequin challenge that brought back memories for everyone who witnessed their brawl.
