Peter O’Mahony celebrated hard in New Zealand with teammate Bundee Aki after Ireland wrapped up a historic series win against the All Blacks.
Aki is clearly trying to look after the flanker, who looks a little bit worse for ware.
A visibly emotional O’Mahony spoke passionately after Ireland held off a ferocious All Blacks fightback to claim a sensational, unprecedented 2-1 series win in New Zealand.
“Hard to put into words, really,” said the Ireland back-rower in his post-match interview.
“That [the crowd noise] says a lot, behind me. You know, it’s never been done before – to win here, to get a series win.
“It probably wasn’t something you thought about, as a young fella. But now, there will be young fellas at home who will dreaming of playing for Ireland and winning over here.
“It will have been done before. It won’t be the task that it was. It will never been taken away from that group. That they are the first to do it. Not only one win, but to win a series here.”
He later was spotted saying to a teammate: “I can’t believe I cried on TV”.

#5. Owen Farrell (England)
Could it be anybody else? Farrell fits the label “our guy” better than most, meaning you love to hate him unless he’s in your squad. Then you’d go to the end’s of the earth to defend him. The England captain, also known as ‘Shoulder boy’ for his high tackling, does himself no favours with his poor tackling technique.
