Paul O'Connell Teams Up With Old Foe Jamie Cudmore For Stupendous Mannequin Challenge

Paul O'Connell Teams Up With Old Foe Jamie Cudmore For Stupendous Mannequin Challenge

Anyone who saw Paul O'Connell fighting Jamie Cudmore back in 2008 would be very surprised to see the two partaking in the 'mannequin challenge' internet craze.

It's one of the well-trodden clichés of rugby that what happens on the pitch, stays on the pitch. And there are few more famous examples within Irish or Munster rugby circles of things 'happening' on the pitch than the Paul O'Connell-Jamie Cudmore scrap back in 2008 in the Heineken Cup.

A couple of years ago we brought you the news that O'Connell and Cudmore seemed to have bonded over a mutual love of wine.

And it would seem like the truce is well and truly established. Paulie and Cudmore engaged in a light-hearted re-creation of their famous scrap from 2008 when on pundit duty at the Aviva Stadium for Ireland v Canada, in their own version of the now-viral 'mannequin challenge'.

Gordon D'Arcy is the only one who screws things up a little.
