    I just love Zebo's attitude. A young lad called up to the Lions and, rather than letting the pressure get to him and going into his shell, he's pulling this kind of stuff ON THE PITCH! Must be the most laid-back and self-confident player we've produced in a long time.

      A good laugh this (from Lions Legal person's blog):

      ........

      At a full tour party session this week organised by the fines committee (made up of three players: Geoff Parling, Richard Hibbard and Rob Kearney), one other player, Simon Zebo (him again), was exposed for having carried out a wonderful piece of nonsensical mischief-making. In the last minute of the first half of the match against the Rebels, a ruck had formed and the Lions scrum-half, Conor Murray, was digging around for the ball at the back of the ruck. Zebo shouted over to Conor that time was up and so he should just kick the ball straight out (rather than playing the called move, passing the ball to the fly-half and running the ball into the Rebels' defence).

      So Conor did as instructed and kicked the ball into touch, and waited for the referee to call time and run into the changing rooms for the half-time break. But instead the referee called for a line out and the Lions coaches and management scratched their heads as to why Conor had kicked to touch, and such a lame kick too, when he should have passed the ball. Conor looked up at the clock and saw that there were still 30 seconds left to play and then looked over at Zebo who was chuckling away to himself, shoulders rocking, at having spoofed his team mate.

      For this outlandish (but hilarious) piece of mucking about, Zebo was required to roll a large furry toy dice, which would dictate what his punishment was to be. So, that is what he did, in front of the whole tour party. And when the dice stopped on the number four, the room erupted with cheers because punishment number four required Zebo to telephone his club coach, Rob Penney, and tell him that he wanted to be captain next season. Within a few seconds, Jamie Roberts had dialled the number and rigged up the speakerphone, and there was Zebo making his case for Munster captaincy to his coach, while 80 players and management stifled their laughter in the background. It did not last long, as the hoots and squeals from those in the room gave the game away, but is was a wonderful piece of comedy.
      Here's the video of it in case anyone missed that game, it around 0:42:45. The look of shock on poor Murray's face when he saw the clock, pity Zebo isn't in shot!

        "..one other player, Simon Zebo (him again),.."

        I love that it's the legal guy, that is saying "him again", We can assume that it wasn't his first meeting,

          The lad made an impression.......the new crop in Munster seem to have some character about them.

            If you click the link, he took a statement off Zebo the morning after the tip tackle by Lachlann Mitchell. It was his first time taking a statement from someone in bed (Zebo that is). You couldn't get Simon Zebo worked up if you tried.

                that is one of the funniest things I have ever seen....!
                He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.
