Niall Horan has been in Paris practicing his kicking with ROG and Jonny

The One Direction star was in the French capital as part of his group’s current tour.

WE’VE SEEN BEFORE that Niall Horan is a friend of Ireland’s rugby stars, but we were surprised to hear that he visited Ronan O’Gara and Jonny Sexton in Paris.

The One Direction member has spent some time at Racing Métro’s world-class training facilities in Plessis-Robinson, where it seems he’s been getting kicking tips from two of Ireland’s best out-halves (one of them now a coach).

The boy band were in the French capital as part of their current tour, but even with that in mind, we’re very jealous of the top-class coaching Horan got from a pair of Irish rugby stars.
