Sean Cronin pokes fun at Paul O’Connell’s chest infection

Paul O’Connell spoke today about the slagging he received from his team-mates in camp over his chest infection and Sean Cronin is clearly one of the guilty parties.

The Irish skipper was recalled to the starting XV that will face Wales this Saturday after recovering from a chest infection that ruled him out of the opening weekend victory over Scotland, with Ulster's Dan Tuohy dropping to the bench.

O’Connell said today he found the infection ‘embarrassing’, adding that some of the players in camp were getting great enjoyment out of his predicament over missing a Six Nations game with a chest infection.

Leinster hooker Cronin jumped on the bandwagon today, posting this picture on Twitter at the Limerick man’s expense.

A tip of the iceberg we'd imagine for what O'Connell has been putting up with all week.
