15 Reasons Why A Team Of Sean O'Briens Could Actually Work

15 Reasons Why A Team Of Sean O'Briens Could Actually Work

Is there anything that Sean O'Brien can't do? 14 months since his last international game, O'Brien took all of eight minutes to lay waste to the French and clean three of them out with a monstrous cleanout.

Sean O'Brien is so good in fact that he could play in any position he wants. There are rumours that the IRFU is considering investing in cloning technology so that they can make real the dream of having a "Team Of Sean O'Briens". And what a team it would be, imagine a Sean O'Brien wreaking havoc in the lineout, a Sean O'Brien bulldosing up the wing, and a Sean O'Brien stealing balls at the breakdown.

World domination would be near complete.

For now though, we can only dream of this fantastic army of Tullow Tanks.

1. Loosehead Prop - Sean O'Brien

Look at that body position. The power generated from Sean O'Brien is phenomenal. It's a little known fact that the only reason Sean O'Brien isn't a prop is because World Rugby has decreed it would be unsafe for the opposition packs.

2. Hooker - Sean O'Brien


Rory Delap was a well known Irish footballer that was famed for his fantastic power he got when throwing the ball in. Stoke City used it as a weapon to great success.

What you don't know is that Sean O'Brien taught Delap everything he knew on how to throw the ball, and his bullets are what the US Government consider to be "Weapons Of Mass Destruction".

3. Tighthead Prop - Sean O'Brien


Rumour has it, that on John Hayes' last game for Ireland, he decreed that his heir as the cornerstone of Ireland's pack shall grow up in a farm.

I wouldn't bet against Sean O'Brien being that man.

4. Loosehead Lock - Sean O'Brien


Who would you want as your "Ruler of the Skies", someone who is 7 foot tall, or someone who reduces giants into mere 2 foot children?

I thought so.

5. Tighthead Lock - Sean O'Brien


Sean O'Brien will not stand for your backtalk.

6. Blindside Flanker - Sean O'Brien

I admit, I might be stretching it here. There's no way that Sean O'Brien could ever be a blindside flanker.

7. Openside Flanker - Sean O'Brien

Pre 2013, The rugby world heralded Richie McCaw as THE openside of rugby. Then he met Mr. Sean O'Brien, and the world still hasn't recovered.

8. No. 8 - Sean O'Brien

I blame Biggar for getting in the way of O'Brien's hand. Barnstorming runs are meat and drink for No.8s, and Sean O'Brien is hungry.

9. Scrumhalf - Sean O'Brien

People are so scared of what Sean O'Brien can do, that when they get on the rugby pitch with him, they panic. When he passes the ball, people marvel at the space and time he puts players in. Don't mess with Seanny.

10. Outhalf - Sean O'Brien

The only problem with O'Brien playing at outhalf is that he'd kick the ball out on the field too often. When you have the power that O'Brien has, controlling it is tough.

11. Left Winger - Sean O'Brien


He's fond of scoring tries on the wing. Did you see that sidestep?

12. Inside Centre - Sean O'Brien

Tip for rugby players everywhere, when Sean O'Brien is used to crash the ball up the middle - get out of his way. You'll only  anger him

13. Outside Centre - Sean O'Brien

It's rumoured that Sean O'Brien defined woshkabomy. Those hands are so soft after spending his time on the farm in Carlow.

14. Right Winger - Sean O'Brien


Imagine the thought process of the oppposite centres. The bulldoser that is Sean O'Brien is out on the wing, meaning that the threat to their lives isn't high. Then guess who pops up off his wing?

I don't blame that fullback for 'falling for' that dummy either.

15. Fullback - Sean O'Brien

Shane Horgan, Rob Kearney and Gavin Duffy. Peerless in the air. Why? Because of their GAA backgrounds.

Haven't we already established that Sean O'Brien is the ruler of the skies?
