Cian Healy offers to squeeze Leinster teammate into electric car with K-Y Jelly

That’s what front-row buddies are for.

MIKE ROSS MUST be regretting his Twitter boasts about getting an electric car to try out for a month.

Ross, the self-appointed technical whizz of the Leinster and Irish rugby teams, posted a picture of a Citreon C-Zero he will be trialling for the next month.

His front-row colleague, Cian Healy was quick off the draw as he responded [sic], “How in the name of God do you plan on fitting into that?? I’ll bring some are in KY on Monday horse.”

Mike Ross, according to the IRFU website, is 6′ 2″ and weighs 19st 13lbs. The Citreon stands just 5′ 3″ from roof to pavement. The joke, we’re presuming, refers to K-Y Jelly, the US-produced brand of lubricant.


Just one teammate doing another teammate a solid. Good to see.
