Look how much fun Paul O'Connell had at Lions training today

‘I’ve got Jack Johnson and Tom O’Leary waitin’ for ya…right here.’

A WISE — YET sometimes slightly forgetful — old man once told me: get a job doing something you love and you won’t work a day in your life.

To us, Paul O’Connell looks like someone who’s heeded that advice too.

This week the Ireland talisman is in camp with his British and Irish Lions team-mates in Carton House. And look how much craic he’s having.

Today, he got to…

Attend the gun show with Dan Lydiate

‘Nine hundred and ninety nine….’

Get stuck in outside

‘It’s my ball and I’m going home!’

Show off his lifting technique

Wear a funny suit and experience sub-zero temperatures

It’s like when the steam room breaks in your local gym cos of lads messing with the sensor. Again.

‘I’m rooming with Conor this week so he might have a broken leg’ – Mike Philips
