GIF: Paul O'Connell Does Not Use Words To Direct Simon Zebo Where To Go

Paul O'Connell stepped onto the Aviva pitch ten minutes into the second half between Ireland and Scotland for his first bit of World Cup warm-up action.

Five minutes later, O'Connell was 'assisting' Simon Zebo into contact.

The Ireland captain knew where his Munster teammate needed to go, but time was of the essence. Rather than verbally inform Zebo, O'Connell altered the winger's trajectory in the most efficient way possible.

Two brilliant lines later - the first from Dave Kearney and the second from Zebo - Ireland got their third try of the game.
