Video: BOD and Rory McIlroy lay down the skills gauntlet to Henry Shefflin
There I was, knocking drop goals between the HSBC-sponsored sticks, minding my own bid'ness, when Rory McIlroy shows up
Brian O'Driscoll and Rory McIlroy showed off their rugby and hurling skills at the Abu Dhabi Championships this week and two camera crews happened to be on the scene. Still, their sporting names, and feats, are hard currency so we feel obliged to show you how they got on.
Sportstars are generally adept at picking up other sports handily so we have no doubt Henry Shefflin would be a master around a tricky Links or out at the Aviva Stadium.
The one thing we learned from this video is that our Rory (TM) is pretty decent with the oval ball. Check out the antics, banter and skills here:
O'Driscoll also found time for some beers at the 19th hole with professional Wimbledon semi-finalist Tim Henman and former world record Test caps holder George Gregan.
