Irish Rugby Players Go Nuts For Close Encounter With Great White Shark In South Africa

Irish Rugby Players Go Nuts For Close Encounter With Great White Shark In South Africa

It's a particularly enjoyable time to be following Irish rugby players on Instagram.

A tour to South Africa gives our boys the chance to achieve something that has never been done before, claim a win over the Springboks in their own back yard, but it also will expose them to stunning scenery and wildlife while they are over there.

Craig Gilory has posted a clip to Instagram of the Irish squad enjoying some 'down time' by getting out on the open water, and sure enough a great white shark came along to say hi.

The reaction from the lads was fantastic.

That is seriously cool.

Robbie Henshaw has also been showing off the beauty of South Africa as he gave us a look at the surroundings for the training sessions that took place last week.

Amazing scenery.

We spoke to Jamie Heaslip recently and he claimed that South Africa is by far the best place he had toured, and it's clear to see why.
