Peter O’Mahony meets a fire extinguisher, he looks furious

Ireland International Peter O’Mahony didn’t look too pleased when he was pranked by Munster teammate Simon Zebo with a fire extinguisher.

Reacting to the clip, one fan wrote: “Another name on the list, another body that will ultimately feed the abundant flowers in POM’s back garden.”

A second wrote: “Fastest Zebo has moved since he came back to Munster,”

Another said: “I’m certain POM had killed for far less than this.”

A fourth commented: “He was ready to kill at one point there.”

Irish hard-man Peter O’Mahony ranks his three toughest opponents

Ireland hero Peter O’Mahony has recalled some of the toughest players he has come up against throughout his career.

The 32-year-old, who we included in our 2022 World XV, was a star performer as Ireland recorded a historic first away series win in New Zealand this summer.

Interestingly, his trio of toughest ever opponents, which you can see below, all played for the All Blacks.

This interview was done prior to the 2022 tour.


#3. Kieran Read

  • Age: 36
  • Position: Number 8
  • Caps: 128

A totem of the modern day All Blacks side.

O’Mahony said: “Read was probably the most skilful I’ve come up against whether it was backs or forwards – he’d be well up there as well.”
