IRISH captain Jamie Heaslip believes Simon Zebo is dealing well with the hype and attention he has received since last week but questioned his dance moves.

Zebo has been catapulted into the national consciousness this week following his magical flick against Wales and his captain is confident he is coping but could hone some of his other talents better

“I’d question some of his dance moves and taste in music,” he said when questioned about the flying Munster winger.

Zebo responded by tweeting: “@jamieheaslip dance lessons for u tonight bro”.

Irish head coach Declan Kidney is confident all the attention Zebo is receiving won’t go to his head.

“He’s dealing with it(the hype) very well. It’s one of the challenges for a young player,” he said.

“It must be something about that generation of guys around 21 or 22, maybe it’s the Celic Tiger thing, but they seem to be born cool.”
