VIDEO: Andrew Trimble perfectly trolls Paddy Jackson's dad with a brilliant prank call

Ulster seem to be peaking at the perfect time of year after back to back wins over Leinster and the Ospreys propelled the northern province to a deserved playoff spot in the Pro12.

A big reason for Ulster's stellar recent form has been the scintillating play of their backs, with Paddy Jackson and Andrew Trimble performing particularly well at the moment.

The duo combine well on the pitch but teamed up to even greater effect in this hilarious video from Ulster Rugby, with the wing ringing up Jackson's dad and pretending to be a member of the Ulster ticket office.

Trimble gave Jackson senior the hard sell on getting a season ticket, teasing the prospect of signing Dan Carter to finally 'get the backline moving'.

The Ireland international can barely keep a straight face as he describes how Ulster's backline has stagnated under the current out-half, with the silence on the other end of the phone only adding to the hilarity.
