VIDEO: Donncha O'Callaghan on the daily stereotypes he must endure in England

Irishman abroad = potato jokes.

We've all been there. We've all grinned through them.

Irish people are commonly associated with Guinness and potatoes when they are living, or holidaying away from these green, misty shores.

We live with it as gracefully as we can. It is not a heavy burden.

Donncha O'Callaghan has been getting an earful ever since he joined up with Worcester Warriors.

The Irish lock recently ended his 15-year association with Munster in search of regular rugby. He has settled in well to Premiership life and could soon have Manu Tuilagi for €1m-a-season company.

In an interview segment with BT Sport, O'Callaghan revealed he is still going through the playful initiation stage at Sixways.

"It's a constant, running joke here at the moment," he said. "Every time I pull out my gear bag or open my locker, I find a potato."
