Most of us will never understand what happens in a professional sports team environment. The few glimpses we do get - whether it be through behind the scenes DVDs like "Living with the Lions"; or stories like when O'Driscoll beat the crap out of Austin Healey -  always make it seem like incidents that we couldn't even begin to conjure happen on a regular occurrence.

Which brings us to Irish rugby training today, and a punishment that Keith Earls had to endure.

A tweet, complete with a video, came from the Irish Rugby account, showing Earls having to smash an egg over his head. Complete with the questionable 'eggscellent' pun.
