Video: Fergus McFadden backs 'Michelin Man' Sean O'Brien to bounce Saxons

Fergus McFadden is part of an exciting Wolfhounds backline and gagging to get his hands on the Saxons

The Kildare native has been named on the right wing for tonight's clash with England Saxons [RTE Two from 7:30pm] and is delighted Leinster colleague Sean O'Brien is back in the mix.

McFadden told us, 'Sean couldn't run for a while so we were getting into him for a while, calling him the Michelin Man.

'That’s just a bit of craic of course, but joking aside Seany’s in great nick now and looking sharp out on the pitch. He’s a massive player for Irish and Leinster rugby so it’s great to see him back fit after that trouble he had with the shoulder.'

The versatile back has suffered from a couple of injury hold-ups this season and is now hoping for a clear run of provincial and Test matches.
