If you’re ever going to talk to Russell Crowe about the South Sydney Rabbitohs, you’d better know your shit. Irish journalist Niamh Walsh found this out the hard way when she suggested he bring Souths over to Ireland to play against the Irish national side. It’s a lovely idea in theory; extending the olive branch of international friendship has long been done through the majesty of sport, which is one of the few universal languages. Of course the one small problem with this idea is that the two teams just happen to play different sports: Souths, rugby league. Irish national side, rugby union. And ole’ Russ was none-too-pleased with this clearly abhorrent ignorance from an entertainment reporter.
Hey @niamhie11 are you watching the match? Oh wait you know nothing about rugby!!! Lol
