Sean O'Brien not impressed with Kearney brothers being referred to as 'famous farm boys'

Sean O'Brien is not having that.

It's fair to say that, ever since Munster tighthead John Hayes retired, Sean O'Brien is the best known rugby-playing farmer in Ireland.

Ireland captain Rory Best is a keen, dedicated farmer too and once remarked that he will retire to his plot of land and leave rugby behind once his time as a professional sportsman is at an end.

Still, O'Brien ranks up there as Ireland's most prominent rugby player that farms, or vice versa.

'The Tullow Tank' racks up the mileage, each week, as he commutes between Leinster Rugby's headquarters at UCD and his Co. Carlow homestead. He insists the work he does on the farm is not only good for his physique but to clear his head too.

Imagine O'Brien's horror, then, when he happened upon the latest edition of The Farmer's Journal's 'Irish Country Living' magazine.

Lo and behold, on the front cover, he was faced with Leinster and Ireland teammates Rob and Dave Kearney. On his Instagram Stories, O'Brien remarked:

"Jaysus, I've seen it all now. [Reading aloud] The famous farm boys!

"The two boys never got their hands dirty in their whole lives. Irish Country  Living must be stuck for a few boys."

We expect a letter to the editor for the next edition.
