Simon Zebo on that flick: 'I do it every day in training'

For reals.

YOU GET THE impression that Simon Zebo will be answering questions about this one for a while yet.

The Corkman announced himself on the international stage earlier this year with an off-the-cuff piece of skill against Wales in Ireland’s Six Nations opener.

The flick led to a Cian Healy try that helped Ireland get out of Cardiff with a victory. And on the eve of Zebo’s Lions debut tomorrow, the incident was still the focus for some reporters in front of Munster back in the tourists’ press room.

“I do that every day in training” Zebo said ahead of the Waratahs clash in Sydney. “I’ve had to talk loads about it. I didn’t think it was much of a big deal it’s just one of those things and I wouldn’t focus too much on those things as a rugby player. There’s a lot of other aspects of my game that I’d be happy about and others that need more focus. But yeah that flick was not once in a lifetime, because it will probably happen again, but just funny.
