VIDEO: Hilarious American commentary after Peter O'Mahony gets pulverised

One NBC commentator described the hit by Samu Manoa as ‘an absolute de-cleating’.

IRELAND TAKE ON Canada at BMO Field, Toronto in the early hours of Sunday morning but surely Canadian commentary can not match this 30-second segment from American broadcasters NBC.

Two of our favourites from the clip are the phrases ‘Hello, hello’ and ‘talk about a crash test dummy’.

The best is perhaps saved for last as the co-commentator remarks ‘that’s the absolute de-cleater’. Cleats is a word many North Americans use when describing football boots.

Top that Canada.
